Monday speedygeese training: Four teams of three battled out a continuous relay around a 350m loop on the east side of Parliament House. A team of Kym, Sarah-Jayne, and Jen led for half of the 32 minutes and got as far as 30 seconds ahead, but the team of Tim, Peter & Warrick clawed back the lead and at the finish ended up 30 seconds in front. Third was the team of Craig, Andrew S, and Dan (new) who hung on for a while but finished one lap in arrears. Finally a team of Andy, Ewen and I were lapped so many times we lost count. Ewen and I had the excuse that we had run 8k beforehand.
