recent speedygeese training

Sunday 24 December speedygeese long run report [Giles]: "Quite a crowd this morning although only one of us actually embraced the Christmas theme... Anyway, today’s course involved some non-flat running along the Majura trails, up along the kangaroo-killing stretch of the Federal Highway (thankfully none were sleeping by the road this morning), and some brown snake hunting up Mt Majura (none were seen though- I think the gentle jingling of the Christmas bells I was wearing scared them off).
Key highlights were:
. Special guest appearance by the Captain (Geoff Moore)
. No significant wrong turns (although the captain did show some lack of a sense of direction)
. No injuries reported
. A fine fruit shake at the end
Most of us did around 10-20 k - not a bad effort when the forecast max is 36 degrees."

I ran most of the way within the vicinity of Jennie and Ruth and Bill, and in the end Giles. There were many speedier runners there.

Monday 25 December - no organised training.
(parkruns available. Same goes for New Year's Day)

Thursday 28 December at Stromlo Forest Park. Not a bad effort again, 14 of us turned out to run a warmup (2.5k); then intervals 5 x 200m (2.0k); 4 x 100m (1.0k); and a cooldown (2.5k). Running were Ewen, Janene, Bill, Giles, Jennie, Sandeep, Jen, Bronwyn, Thach, Jason, Colin, Dave, Brownie, me also doing the shortish session.
