My winter running streak day 21

Posted by speedygeoff on Sunday, July 21, 2019 with No comments
It was winter when I got up this morning. Minus 5 degrees early on, minus 3 when I arrived at Stromlo. I ran 6k. At Stromlo Forest Park there was sun, moon, ice, hundreds of kangaroos frozen to the spot, me with beanie, gloves, tracky dacks, long sleeve top.

The speedygeese found the fog, too.

My winter running streak day 20

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, July 20, 2019 with No comments
I ran the Runners Shop 5k today: I had a choice of a parkrun with a forecast temperature of 0 degrees, or the 1pm run at 12 degrees, I chose the latter. Total 9k, the 5k was a good 23:22. Km splits were all over the place, an indicator of how hard I was pushing.

My running streak day 19

Posted by speedygeoff on Friday, July 19, 2019 with No comments
Today was gym circuit day, and I jogged just 5k while attending the gym for an hour. It was a bit chilly to run very far, again, for me.

Here are yesterday's happy speedygeese at Parliament House.

Posted by speedygeoff on Thursday, July 18, 2019 with No comments
This time I managed to do the training session with the speedygeese, running 6 x 400m on 5 minutes including jogging back. I ran 7k in total. Others participating were Lisa, James, Jennie, Ruth, Jenny M, Isaac, Brownie, and Allie with Peach.

That's all for today, goodnight.

If you wish to appear in the speedygeese parkrun report, it is very easy to set your home club to speedygeese.
Today’s highlight: Isaac ran at Queanbeyan for the first time, with a respectable 22:49.

Today I jogged 4k from the Kippax shops. Despite getting away for a couple of days around the weekend, I still haven't got my mojo back.

Very relaxed!



That's what I need, another holiday already.

My winter running streak days 13 and 14

Posted by speedygeoff on Sunday, July 14, 2019 with No comments
I ran down in Jamberoo, early runs before breakfast as we were busy for the rest of the day both days. It was sooooo cold. So just 3k Saturday and 2k Sunday suffICEd.

It was good to catch up with 9 of the grandchildren, and good to enjoy being at the engagement party for one of them.

Grandchildren are fun.

Posted by speedygeoff on Thursday, July 11, 2019 with No comments
I got to run 5k at training, but it was very cold so I was well rugged up. Not the best workout.

Runners doing 12 x 170m runs up/down hills were Lisa, Jenny M, Brownie, Yelena with Vianne doing short runups, Don, Isaac and Ruth. Dave, Jen, Joel, Maya and I were in the vicinity. We didn't hang around too long afterwards.

And it is wintry today. It looks like it is snowing on the ranges. I ran 8k at lunch time after a 55 minute gym session. Despite the cold and the wind, I felt better than usual.

My winter running streak day 9

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, July 09, 2019 with No comments
Today I tried another acceleration run over 5k down Drake Brockman Drive and back and, despite road crossings where I had to pause and take care, I managed to succeed in running each km faster than the previous one. Just. This beats doing a warmup for a tempo run.

And it is still mid-winter, isn't it?

At training were Richard, Gwen, Michael, Kelley, Ruth, Jennie, George, Isaac, Mick, Bernardo, Indigo, Kahlia, Deborah, Lisa, Melissa, Susan, Warrick with me co-ordinating the group. Dave was also seen as were Jen, and Paul with Maya.

I went out to Stromlo Forest Park for a run with Andrew this morning; an 8am start is more civilised than our previous runs out there. I did 6k and felt fine; kept my distance down so I can build up again.. I also plan to go to a physio soon..

Isaac has entered the Bush Capital Bush Marathon Festival .. have you? Registration closes 24 July. Isaac's in the 12k, and George and Jennie have already entered as well.

I ran the Ginninderra parkrun today and lost interest after 2k. I believe it's called "Doing a Tomic". My km splits - 5:15. 5:00, 6:00, 5:30, 5:00, or thereabouts. Anyway, 26:46 is something to beat next time. Total for day, 6k.

I felt so cold tonight even though the temperature reading didn't say so, that we did 20 hill sprints just to keep warm. And ate cake afterwards, thanks Jenny M it was delicious. At training were Lisa, Isaac, Yelena, Vianne, Don (returnee from long ago), Jenny M, Allie, Peach, Ruth, Jennie, George, me, and Jen, Joel, Maya also in attendance. That's 15, strong numbers for a Thursday and a July one at that. Oh, and I did 5.5k.

My winter running streak day 2

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, July 02, 2019 with No comments
I tried out an acceleration run, 5k from Kippax ovals. Not a bad way to do it, as the first km can be the warm-up. And a bit of a challenge, as the fifth km coming back to the finish is mostly uphill. It worked well; the km times fell into place nicely, and the last was the quickest. Today's distance, 5k.

I ran after lunch. Here's a pic from this morning... Brrrr.

I jogged 2k in the morning, and another 5k in the evening with the speedygeese.

Some of today's gaggle.

The training session was 4 x 800m run with the last 200m flat out. The weather was fine, cool and still.

This morning at the lake:



And at Stromlo, 10:35am, I ran 6k, quite quick for me, and got first in the M70s.
Now to decide whether I run Nationals Masters in October.
First, a couple more holidays to go on, though.

On track

Training tonight back at speedygeese I jogged 5k again - wish I could resolve these "niggles" - and watched a repeat of a quite old session of 200/400/600/200/400/600/200 jogging back enjoyed apparently as "variety" (but we did it 2 years ago) by Brownie, Paul Q, Jenny M, Jennie, George, Melissa, Lisa, Ruth, Dave and me some of it.

My winter training day 16

Posted by speedygeoff on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 with No comments
Today, my last session in Canberra for 7 days, I ran a good 5k and exercised hard in the gym for 45 minutes.

I will see if I can fit in a parkrun somewhere next Saturday morning (preferably one with a slow M70 record)!

My winter training day 15

Posted by speedygeoff on Monday, June 17, 2019 with No comments


Ruth's photo almost needs no caption. 23 people at speedygeese tonight - well there was Dave doing the Dave thing, Joel bringing family, Rae turning up at the end for the bubbly (well she did fall and need five stitches yesterday at Kowen, but still finished, tough girl that), no less than four young ladies under 6 who had a ball (Mya, Vianne, Erica, Maya too), birthday girl from a couple of weeks ago Indigo (24), birthday boy today Paul Q (39 he said), birthday girl tomorrow Susan (45, unbelievable, she looks so young), plus Paul F, me, Kylie, Vanessa H, Yelena, Richard, Gwen, Max, Warrick, Ruth, Deborah D, Jenny M, and James. No particular order. I only jogged 4k while those training did ~12 minutes of a three person relay, then ~12 minutes of "squares", running up and down the flag poles alternately and jogging across in between, this was all at the lower flagpoles at Parliament House, down towards Old Parliament House. I was pleased to see Warrick, recovered enough to be able to walk with the assistance of kind-of crutches.

My winter training day 14

Posted by speedygeoff on Sunday, June 16, 2019 with No comments
On another busy weekend, I managed to fit in a run this Sunday morning, and was pleased that leg soreness was at a minimum. I went out early to Stromlo Forest Park, where it was crisp but without wind, and ran with Andrew, completing 8k.


Here's James running a week ago.

My winter training days 12 & 13

Posted by speedygeoff on Saturday, June 15, 2019 with No comments
Friday (day 12) I had off, and Saturday (day 13) I ran the Ginninderra parkrun in 23:32, which, including a 2k warmup, totalled 7k. Official results say (at the moment) that I ran 23:05, but I didn't. I did however run almost dead even 1k splits. Tomorrow I will run at Stromlo on the grass.
