déjà vu

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, July 30, 2013 with 3 comments
Monday training: It might sound like déjà vu, but we had the best conditions for training I can remember. There was no wind, not a drop of rain, good cloud cover which meant it was humid but not cold, with twilight and reflected light meaning that visibility was good, and the grass soft from the earlier rain but not slippery. However the earlier light shower did keep a few away. Training were Andy, Garry, me, Jen, Kelley, Susan & Warrick. We ran 15 intervals of a 333m loop on 2 minutes, the loop including one 100m climb. I skipped every fourth as I am still not 100%, but getting there.

Congratulations to Bronwyn, her team winning Saturday’s Adventure Race. See http://all-rounder.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/mountain-designs-adventure-race.html for every detail.

Warrick is training for the Perth city to Surf Marathon, 25 August http://events.sportsnewsfirst.com.au/Data/Article/00000249/42km.jpg. Part of it is flat!

I will run the Uluru Desert Marathon one year, it is on my bucket list. 2015 is the next window of opportunity.

  1. Haha click on the heading - now you see it now you don't!

    (unless you are using internet explorer in which case it doesn't appear at all. But WHY WHY WHY would anyone want to use internet explorer? Download Firefox for goodness sake. Or Chrome. Any decent browser. IE sucks big time.)

  2. By déjà vu I was expecting 100% of participants in Monday's training to be capable of growing beards.
