Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, June 22, 2018 with No comments
Sunday 17 June: long run report [Dave]: In 3 degrees with a slight Westerly, 16 speedygeese set off on a two and a half km gentle rise around the north face of Mt Stromlo then a very nice trail down to the river, along the slight undulation of the river trail then back to the bike path and Mt Stromlo (14k).
Six of us then added another 8k around Narrabundah Hill for a total of 22km with around 500 metres elevation.
Beautiful scenery, great company and a perfect mix of fitness and fun. Wouldn’t have stayed in bed for quids 😃.
Welcome to new, or relatively new, runners Natalie, Clive and Craig.
Meanwhile there were some great results at the Kowen trail run, with Sarah-Jane first female and Monica third female in the half marathon. Bernardo was first male and Narelle was second female in the 12k. Giles and Amanda Mc also put in a great performance in the half and Mike did the full marathon. 😮
Next week, some are doing Sri Chinmoy 20k, Dave might be our only rep at the Kiama Classic 14k.

Monday 18 June at Parliament House: Ten people turned up on a wet and cold day – except the rain cleared and the wind dropped just in time. Running were Jen, Isaac, Giles, Dave, Candy, Warrick, Jennie, Jacob, Anthony (new), and me, while Christopher walked. The group ran 200 on/200 off for 30 minutes, they probably did about 12-15 of them.

Thursday 21 June at Parliament House: it was cold. I ran 5k early fully rugged up; then running intervals over 200, 300, 400m were Jacob, Isaac, Dave, Jennie, Bernardo, Craig and Giles, while I jogged another 5k. Anthony arrived at the end and did his training solo.
