Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, August 05, 2015 with 2 comments
Dickson training last Thursday: Ruth and I ran early, then for the main session we ran 4 x 4 minutes hard with 4 minutes recovery on the track. Participating were Colin, Dave, Jen, Julia, Kayla, Maria, Susan & Tori.

Monday at Parliament House: Bron, Marie, Julia and I ran early. For the main session Andy, Bron, Isaac, Jen, Julia, Pieta, Ruth Susan, Warrick & I ran 10 hills on 80 seconds varying tempo, spring & speed, then 12 minutes of 200m repeats on the small oval. Afterwards a few of us were at dinner: Andy, Bron, Caroline, Rae, Ruth, Vanessa, Warrick & I. Those dinners are good; you should come along to the next one, in six weeks, give or take.

Gym work
I go to the Energy Fitness Centre in Kippax to do circuit-type training Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Centre is promoting its small group classes and have interviewed a few attendees, including me.



  1. I saw you & Strewth doing your early jog on Thurs. You were meandering up Cowper St as I was driving home from work. It was chilly!

    Have you replaced CIT Fitness with Energy Fitness? I wonder why?

    1. Hi Liz, when my CIT membership ran out I checked out Energy and discovered it was not as expensive as I thought.
      Before CIT I had been doing circuits at Charnwood under the watchful eye of Anu Kael, and she was now at Energy.
      Also at CIT I was only working out in the gym and I wanted to get back to group classes.
      The other consideration was, I live just down the road from Energy, in Holt, whereas CIT is a bit of a drive,
      I will be renewing at Energy next year, i am very happy with it.
