Training at Parliament House last night: We did circuits on the west side oval, 20 minutes of exercises and sprints. 15 starters, perfect conditions with the grass dry and cut short. Attending were Abi, Andrew, Andy, Christopher, Colin, Craig, Ewen, me, Jen, Lincoln, Lucia, Mick, Ruth, Warrick & Yelena. The five exercise stations were crunches, squats, push-ups, lunges, and calf raises. This is a slightly modified version of something known in Canberra as "the battlecamp circuit".
Novelty events rule, OK?
Changes have been announced for this Thursday's track program. As a result of last week's washout, we now have the 3000m Pennington event on at 6:00pm in place of a straight 3000m, and a 6 lap spiral handicap at 8:05pm in place of the 3000m/5000m. We also have a 4 x 1500m relay as per program. Interesting that novelty events are given precedence over normal events. Some will like that, others will stay away. I'm on duty and hadn't planned to race anyway. Tonight's Acton 5k will do for this week.
