seven years

Posted by speedygeoff On Wednesday, January 18, 2012 | 8 comments
This blog is seven years old today!


Training group size
After we had 22 training at Parliament House this week, I was asked if that was the most we have had? No, here are the official records!

31 at North Lyneham on Tuesday 12th June 2003
30 at Parliament House on 20 September 2004
30 at Parliament House on 3 March 2008

I would like to see our training group grow in numbers. Not at the expense of other training groups. But I would love to see us exceed 100 participants each week. Can we accommodate 100? Yes, because the training can be adapted to suit most people who join us. We can break up into groups of speedsters, middle distancers, and long distancers. We can run relays to ease any congestion on the tracks. Where will the numbers come from? Mainly from new people. And who brings in new people? Mainly the newest members. Go for it!

Pre-workout-supplements. Don’t ever take these kind of supplements, and don’t get sucked in by articles like the one at http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-01-17/pre-workout-supplements/3774122 which, even though it seems to be warning readers against taking dangerous supplements, actually tempts them to try some. And why not, someone may ask? The risks should be obvious. And, we are in this game for the long haul, not just to feel good tomorrow. Don’t be tempted!

Seven years of blogging. I shall keep going, I should get it right one day..

Run on!

  1. Get it right? Every time I post I get it right, for me just to post every week is getting it right. I don't think I will every be very good, but every time some-one ready what I have writen it makes me smile.

    I don't ever want 100 guys to join me at the club, but 20 would be nice. Term starts next month, then we will see what the new year holds for UCT
