400m hurdles semis 7:00pm today

Posted by speedygeoff On Tuesday, August 30, 2011 | 2 comments
Our Lauren Boden made the semis of the women's 400m hurdles at the World Athletic Championships. There are 24 in the three semi-finals; she was 12th fastest in the heats. You might like to tune into SBS-2 tonight at 7:00pm and cheer Lauren on.

Last night at Parliament House the speedygeese commenced a month of hill sprint sessions. First of all Craig, Ewen, Jen, Nadine & I ran 8k easy, then the main group of Andrew, Andy, Bronwyn, Caroline, Colin, Craig, David, me, Helen, Larissa, Nadine, Neil, Ruth & Warrick did 12 x 100m on a steepish hill, followed by 8 x 85m on an easier hill. Next week we plan to do something similar.

Customs 5k Friday 26 August: Floriade course.
Gary Bowen 22:19
Bob Harlow 22:26
Yili Zhu 22:59
Miranda Rawlinson 26:41
Caroline Campbell 32:33
Geoff Barker 35:42
I am hoping to get there this Friday.

Springing into spring




Song of the week. “Featherstone” – The Paper Kites – “Woodland” EP. From http://youtu.be/M0IDiVQxZYg



The Paper Kites are an emerging band from Melbourne, Victoria. Their awesome sound is very similar to that of the brilliant The Middle East from Townsville, Queensland. I wish them every success in the future.
