speedygeese training

Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, May 04, 2016 with 2 comments
Last Thursday at Dickson I ran long (20k altogether). For training at 5:30pm a group of six ran 6 x 600+ in relays of 2. We had Colin, Dave, Maria O’R, Maria S (new), and Rohan participating.

On Sunday at Stromlo the rain stopped at exactly 7:30am, Dave and Pieta ran long, I jogged on the grass, chatted to Amanda, Ken & Katie, and watched Vanessa as she started a long mountain bike race.

On Monday I ran early then donned beanie and gloves for the first time this year which did the job nicely. Doing 6 x 15 seconds then 12 x 30 seconds on the grass were Caroline, Christopher, Colin, Dale, Dave B2, Dave C, Mick, Pieta, Ruth, Warrick & me. Birthday champagne was shared afterwards (happy birthday me, 68 today).

To celebrate my birthday today I will run at BBQ Stakes shortly. Haven't been there for a couple of years probably, although old men sometimes have unreliable memory. However...


  1. good to see you today...hope it was a worthy birthday run!

    1. A birthday hobble and shuffle in the noonday sun. what else could an old man want.
