exercises for strength

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, September 27, 2011 with 2 comments
Strength #1. Push-Ups

  • Kneel on all fours with the hands a little wider than shoulder width
  • Straighten your legs out behind you so that your weight is distributed between your hands and toes
  • Bend the elbows outwards to lower the chest towards the floor
  • Push back up to the starting position

Training at Parliament House: Last night Craig, Ewen, me, Helen & Jen ran the early run, then for the main session Abi, Andrew, Andy, Bronwyn, Caroline, Colin, Craig, Kym, Neil, Ruth & Warrick ran six intervals on five minutes of a 660m circuit which included one grasy hill three times. After the session I went to a meeting where a friend, one of the participants, was telling me about her best friend Vanessa and Vanessa's husband Warrick who had just run the Sydney marathon .... small world, same Warrick.

Last Friday's Customs 5k:
Andrew Simpson 20:03
Yili Zhu 21:35

  1. Hi there Geoff, a small favour if I may...

    Today a young English lady came to the AIS looking for information about joining a running group. Slight problem, she is only here for a week at the most, but is really keen to meet up with anyone interested in going for a long run with her.

    Anne-Marie said she runs sub 3hr marathon, so could you put this on your blog for her please ?

    If anyone is interested, they can text her on:

    Thanks Geoff
