Speedygeese training summary

Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 with No comments
On Thursday 08 June at Parliament House Helen (new) and Joe (new) visited without joining in – yet. I supervised a session of 8 x 400s on the grass near the upper flagpoles, with Colin, Dave, Isaac, Jen, Jennie, Brownie, Ruth and Tori participating.

On Sunday 11 June Andrew and I jogged at Stromlo. I didn't get far before I had to stop, too sore. Meanwhile the distance group reports “Another successful, but cold and foggy, speedygeese long run done and dusted (around the Arboretum and the river). Sarah and Dave started early with a 5k warmup before meeting the others at 8am. Narelle was our navigator today. Having run the course several times, there was no chance of her getting us lost. We did have a few minutes of anxiety when we thought we lost Kerron and Bron, but it turned out they weren’t lost, just cruising. Narelle put in a big 33k by adding on a loop around LBG west basin, at a great average pace of 5.08, in preparation for the Gold Coast marathon. Dave knocked out 27k at 5.23 pace, adding a couple of fast ks at the end. Others averaged around 5.30 to 6.15 pace. Graeme did 22k and Sandeep 21, while Susan, Jen, Sarah and Bron finished with around 20k. Mhairi completed 17k, while Ewen and Isaac chalked up about 15. Kerron, on her debut run with us, put in a solid 13k. Most of us hobbled to the Arboretum café to thaw out and refuel.”

Monday 12 June at Parliament House, a good turnout for a public holiday, we ran ramp sprints, 15 x 160m on 2 minutes. I supervised while running were Bill, Colin, Dave, Giles, Jen, Jennie, Jessica, Peter B, Pieta, Sandeep, Sarah, Tom, Warrick, and Andrew Smith (new).

Today I have been banned from running until my calf improves, so future training sessions at Parliament House will be in walking/shuffling distance from our cars! Probably.
