Thursday at Dickson: Miranda and I had a run early, setting off at about 4:20pm. This week we shall head off at 4:30pm. Then we were joined by Susan, Colin and Dave, and ran some 200m intervals with 100m recovery. As reported on Facebook, the speedygeese page, "Thursdays at the little athletics track at Dickson: A very successful first Thursday, last week. Lights were on, no-one else was running on the actual track (other than 5 speedygeese), and grass was lush and green. So Dickson is go. Come one come all at 5:30pm each Thursday. If you want an easy run of 8-10k run first, join us there at 4:30pm sharp. Then at 5:30pm we warm up for intervals on the track."

Monday at Parliament House: Ewen, Cathy, Dan and I ran a new 8k course at 4:30pm, then were joined at 5:30pm by Andy, Bron, Colin, Isaac, Jen, Julia, Mick, Nicole, Pieta, Susan, Thomas & Warrick. We headed for the hills and ran a session taking in the two SW slopes, 15 intervals on 2 minutes. Maybe headlamps needed next time? Thanks too, to Andy, for birthday champagne after.

Meanwhile, I am doing the April abs challenge each day still; just; and three classes in the gym each week, and running six or seven days. Importantly, feeling like I am improving. Most days anyway.

And in breaking news: We have a new speedygosling! Will and Abi are very pleased to announce the birth of Samuel John Fargher who arrived early this morning. Mum and baby both doing well.
