The hills of Wagi Bridge parkrun!

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, November 09, 2019 with No comments
Today I negotiated the hills (and strong wind) really well and even finished with very even splits, to run 13th in 23:44. This took a big slice off the M70 record, ~6 minutes from memory. Hmm, having Friday off did no harm.



Another speedygeese Cameron ran 11th. I nearly ran him down at the half way mark but the next uphill sorted me out.

Thursday evening training at Stromlo

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, November 08, 2019 with No comments
Some of us ran 3x1k with a 1k jog, while some did a rebel run. But present in all were Rohan, Jennie, Jacob, Celina, Tim, Ann, Mike L'P, Brownie, Jen, Isaac, Dave and me. And where is all this wind coming from?

I'm wearing the new speedygeese buff... It does keep the ears warm.

Here is a message from our President Peter Thomson:
Canberra Times Fun Run 10 November
  Thanks to all the people who have volunteered or will be pacers at the Canberra Times Fun Run (CTFR).  All up we have over 60 people helping out at the Fun Run.  The Club relies on people volunteering and I am really pleased we have been able to fill all the volunteer roles.
 Best of luck to the people in the Club’s CTFR Training Group – may you all finish with a smile!   
 I like to encourage all people who are running in the CTFR to wear Club singlets or shirts.   To assist this, we are clearing our current stock of the Club shirts and singlets for only $10!  
Committee matters
 Congratulations to Paul Mahoney who was formally appointed by the Club Committee as Chair of the 2020 Capital to Coast Sub-Committee and also appointed as the Race Director for the 2020 Race Director.
  We are seeking someone to Chair the 2020 Half Marathon sub-committee and to be the Race Director for the 2020 Half Marathon.  If you are interested in either or both of these roles please contact me.
 Jo Legge-Wilkinson has been doing some great work on merchandise and the plan is that there will be new club shirts with an updated club design available in the next few months.
Competition
The monthly Jogalong is on this Sunday in Weston Park starting at 9am. There is a 1.6km for young  children and a 3km and 6km for older females.
 The Spring Series starts next Tuesday (Melbourne Cup day) at 6:15 pm at the Boathouse. You can choose between the 2 km or the 5 km races.  This first event of the 2019 Spring Series is the 100th Spring Series event.  I particularly want to congratulate and thank Dave Osmond who has overseen the Spring Series since before our club started.    Also, special mention to Jim White who has run in 99 Spring Series events to date. 
Dave Osmond is looking for people to either organise the Spring Series events or to assist with them. Please contact Dave if you can help at davo.osmond@gmail.com .
Peter

Our Club annual meeting will be held on Monday 18 November at the Aquatic Recreation Centre in Yarralumla at 6pm. While most of the committee are standing again, there are a few vacancies. If you are  interested in contributing to the Club organisation, please let us know. Peter Thomson, or any of the current committee, would be happy to answer any questions you might have about what is involved.

Running on Monday night at Parliament House

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 with No comments
For once good weather - not too hot, not too cold, and no wind. We trotted down to Reconciliation Place for our "ramp runs"; 15 x 150m uphill sprints on 2 minutes. Running were Lee (new), Peach, Allie, Paul Q, Trevor, Ruth, Jennie, Michael, Deborah D, James, Sév, and me. Christopher's ghost may have been seen as we passed by that billabong. But no-one came waltzing matilda with him.

Ruth was back, so we have pictures:

Thursday training

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, October 25, 2019 with No comments
Last week cold, this week hot, today impossible so my running streak ends after 25 days - which is a good number of days. Doing 500m hill sprint circuits were Andrew, Rohan, Colin, Jacob, Kevin, Jennie, Ann (new), Chloe, Yelena, and me jogging, and Dave in the vicinity. And yes, Handlebar was open.

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, October 22, 2019 with No comments
Last evening we ran relays from court 8 - the 400m track with the steep hill. While Dave jogged around, Warrick did laps looking more mobile every week, and I watched, the teams consisted of Trevor (new), Richard, Gwen, Jennie, Deborah D, Sév, Paul Q, Michael, Mick, Brownie, Vanessa and Craig.

333 finishers

A great day, a great course, 333 finishers, good to see Margaret and Gwen (Gwen mislaid her bar code so isn't in the results), good to see Bob and Carolyne. My time was not very good as I plodded the long uphill x 2, and held myself back on the return downhills. Great work by the organisers and course volunteers.
