graceful entrance

That feeling when you know you shouldn't be there, but just don't know how to make a graceful exit:

None of you are like that I know.

I love this Canberra weather. Crisp and clear mornings, just right for putting on the beanie and gloves and going for a run. This morning I ran at Stromlo, three 1 kilometre intervals with a similar jog. The first two were with long sleeves, beanie and gloves, all of which I shed for the third. Times were 4:53, 4:33 and 4:18. That's 20 seconds faster in total than last week. What this all means is (a) I am more disciplined than I was, I can run intervals by myself, and (b) I am not waiting to get fast before I start trying to train fast, as it usually works the other way round.

I am looking forward to seeing today's Gold Coast Marathon and Half Marathon times, and also today's King of the Mountain results, in case any of the speedygeese ran. I hope you did well.

I am also looking forward to meeting up with everyone again on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and hopefully a few of you next Sunday too.

Very speedy goose

  1. Ah, Jen got the better of Bron on Friday. Wonder if she started in the correct group?
