Posted by speedygeoff on Wednesday, March 08, 2017 with No comments
Thursday 2 March Parliament House we ran "Rose Garden 200s": Jen, Isaac, Giles starting on 2:30; Garry random; Ruth, Jennie, Steph on 3:00; me supervising.

Sunday 5 March Stromlo Forest Park: Andrew and I ran as usual on the grass track from 7:30am. Next week (the 12th) the distance group will be starting at the same time and location.

Sunday 5 March
long run: "Another great day to be out running on the hilly trails near Hackett with Speedy Geese. A smaller group today, with some out of town or rogaining. Starting at 7.00am, as usual, Ewen did the first loop (about 12k), Susan added part of the second loop, including the 2k continuous uphill to do around 16k, while Giles, Sandeep, Warwick and Dave did both loops (around 20k). Sandeep did some extra kms (while we drank coffee) to do a total of 30k. Had to drive him home because he couldn't walk ;-) Dave started at 5.30am and did 17.5k down to the lake and back before the others arrived, and completed 40km in total in 3 hours 36 minutes (happy with that :-) ). Finished off with water, grapes, banana, more water, coffee, raisin toast, more water and more coffee. Thanks for organising the course Giles."
