Speedygeese training summary

Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, June 07, 2017 with No comments
On Thursday 01 June at Parliament House we ran some 2 person continuous relays over 300m, then some 3 person relays over 200m. I supervised, Christopher was seen walking, running were Brendan, Colin, Craig, Dave, Giles, Isaac, Jen, Brownie, Rohan, Ruth, Sandeep, and Sarah.

Sunday 04 June the speedygeese long run saw a turnout of 10 fine athletes. It was designed by Giles and covered Little Black Mountain and Mount Painter (hillier than usual). Jen provided navigation assistance. It’s probably getting a bit monotonous to talk about getting lost, so let’s just say we needed directions before we reached the 1k mark (see photo) and split into two groups before meeting up a couple of kms later. Sandeep, Bron and Sarah (with a sore ankle) did the short course (Little Black Mountain - around 11km). Susan added a few kms to finish with around 15. Jen, Nigel and Thach (new recruit) did about 18k while Giles and Dave did some extra kms at the end to total 21.1k (and 620m of elevation). Apart from Sarah’s ankle there were no injuries. This week’s shenanigans were limited to a few chin-ups on the Mount Painter trig.

Directions please?

Monday 05 June at Parliament House, running 200s 300s and 400s were Colin, Isaac, Jen, Peter, Pieta, Warrick, Tori and Kylie (new). Dave jogged around at a slow marathon pace, I jogged around supervising even walking a bit, and Christopher was again seen walking.
