speedygeese training

Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, April 06, 2016 with No comments
(a) Thursdays at Dickson: We kicked off Dickson training last Thursday evening with a good turn-up for the resumption; including one new runner and two others we had not seen for a long time. Maybe we will see more new arrivals as we continue to meet there: Antill street, Thursday evenings; 5:30pm.
Nine did 400m continuous relays while I watched. Running were Bill (long time no see), Caroline, Colin, Dave C, Giles (new), Peter B2 (long time no see), Rohan, Ruth and Susan.

(b) On Sunday at Stromlo Andrew and I trained on the grass while Dave C, Thommo and Pieta ran long. We won't be there this Sunday: for Sunday's marathon, a good spectator spot is near the dog park Yarralumla, at the entrance to Weston Park. I plan to cheer from there again this year.

(c) On Monday at Parliament House and a warmish evening. I ran early, then supervised the group doing their third set of Rose Garden 200s. Colin ran off 2:15; Isaac, Jen and Dave C off 2:20; Andy, Pieta and Warrick 2:40; Alex, Mick and Christopher 3:00; and Rae, Ruth & Caroline just behind that.

This coming Monday the 11th, our running group will be having its occasional Yacht Club get-together for a drink and a meal, straight after training, getting there by 7:00pm. It's quite informal and everyone is welcome, just turn up. [Rain is forecast so if you are training a change of clothes might be advised]

Happy running everybody, and best wishes to all entering running festival events on the weekend.
