Stromlo Forest Park

Strewth at Stromlo. I hope this photo meets her approval. They all look good to me. She is so photogenic. It is the matching gear she always wears. Must be a deliberate ploy to ensure there are always lots of photos of Strewth taken each month. Which there are.

1. About Sunday's 8k, I didn't run all that fast, I held back. The time wasn't quick.
2. I wasn't keen to push the pace having run 37k the day before.
3. The first 4k was at marathon pace, can I keep it up for another 46k?
4. The splits for the two laps were 18 minutes and 17 minutes. I would hope to be approaching 16 minutes per 4k in June for the Cross Country Championships.
5. The apparent "high" age percentage is more to do with age than with speed.


  1. Thanks Geoff! Bhutan and the wedding feel like ages ago, so the photo reminder is nice. And a great picture of Strewth, as always. Taken at the best running venue around (I definitely agree with you there!)

    1. Beautiful setting for a beautiful couple Abi:) And I hadn't seen that photo of me Geoff - I think I was trying for a smile instead of a grimace. The grass really did feel good on Sunday. I think I am quite liking that venue at last. Oh and speedygeoff I don't care what you say I think you are fast and you are going to do an amazing ultra!
