Congratulations once again to everyone who competed in Perth at the Masters. It was a very successful meet and you should all be very proud of your achievements.

Meanwhile back in Canberra ACT we had our Monday night training at Parliament House. Being Easter Monday, more than usual ran the early run: Andrew, Craig, Ewen, me, Jennifer, Miranda & Ruth. Then we were joined by Caroline, Christopher, Jill, Katherine, Neil, Warrick & Geoff for a session where we ran in teams of six; three in each team running at any one time; short sprints for twenty minutes on a triangular course around the flagpoles below Parliament House. Very anaerobic. It seemed strange that it was getting dark by the end of the session but that is something we will have to become used to.


  1. So many good races in Perth I don't know where to start. Maybe I'll keep starting up the front in the monthly handicap races ;) Well done Geese!

  2. Those results are absolutely fantastic - the speedygeese have certainly excelled. Wowee!
