Spring has sprung

... four days early. No complaints from me.

Recent training sessions
At Dickson training last night, Rod showed up, and he ran some 300m intervals while I took an early mark.  The previous night there were eight of us enjoying the mild evening - I ran 8k early, then supervised a set of "Rose Garden" 200s on 2:30. Running were Tori, Kelley, Garry, Rae, Craig, Jen & Peter. And on Sunday Andrew and I jogged around at Stromlo Forest Park, and watched the first leg of the ACT Duathlon championships; I think Andrew liked the look of it and decided he might have a go next year.

Future Training
A heads up that all ACT Government Sportsgrounds will be closed from mid September for routine maintenance. Therefore our training sessions at Dickson and Kaleen will cease then.

I am wondering if there would be interest in a training session at Kippax, my local area, for one or two people who would commit to it, for a few months perhaps? Please discuss.

New gym.
The gym I have been attending for years has closed and this morning I joined the gym at Bruce CIT. Excellent value. Open every day and is well equipped. Thanks to Rod for telling me about it; he goes there and I even bumped into him arriving as I was coming out of there today. I ran around Bruce Ridge afterwards and that's another plus: good training venues nearby including of course the AIS.

Glad to be back in Canberra. Beautiful at this time of year.


  1. Welcome home. CIT has fantastic facilities that not enough people are aware of and/or take advantage of. I work at CIT Reid and am lucky to be able to access the gym there etc.

    1. Sounds good JB. I enjoyed today's session and look forward to my time there.

  2. That's a shame. What about the instructors you were always raving about?

    Yep, first day of Spring today - my allergies are working overtime.

    1. I am off to the Doctor Thursday with allergies, haven't been fully well since Feb 2012. Anyway, I won't be disconnecting fully from F4L, I hope to see Tam & Anu socially reasonably often from now on.
