red spot special

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, July 15, 2011 with 1 comment
Dickson Training last night: I ran early then got sucked into participating in my intense track interval session, so won't be racing at Customs today! The coach should be allowed to opt out! Three days in a row flat out is a no-no, and therefore an easy jog of 10k or so will do today before tomorrow morning's long run. Also running early were Craig & Bronwyn, who didn't stay for the session, and Nadine, who ran half the early run and half the track session. Arriving at 5:30pm for the interval session were Cinea (new), Colin, Garry, Heather (new), James (new), Joel, Kate (new), Neil, Roger, Ruth & Susan. We ran 12 x 300m+ in teams of two, a 100m+ jog in between. 300m+ because we were in lane four.

Last night's Clarke&Dawe: Portugal is for sale! From


Sacramento: Kathy Sims is running the W60 1500m, Geoff Sims the M60 400m and qualified easily after the first round. If you look up the website at, beware: before the final is run, a list of times may appear next to the athletes names as if that's what they ran in the final, without explanation, but possibly these are qualifying times.

I should point out that these times are incorrect, due to errors by the race officials! The women ran way faster than the times they were given.

  1. Perhaps you should pass the hat around at the next training session - Portugal or Ireland?? LOL! They're both great especially at this time of year!
