Well done on the huge turnout on what loomed as a pretty ordinary night – as the weather during the afternoon  was enough to dampen the enthusiasm of a few (no names!) So to still see 62 of you in action was most pleasing. If I can stand in the rain during the sessions – surely you can run in it! The improved lighting at the baseball field really has made a big difference for us – and it’s great to be able to see what’s happening all the way around the track now on a dark night.

This week we did 8 x 60sec efforts (60 sec recovery after each)  and this was handled extremely well by all of you – great work. No problems restricting the 60 sec intervals to just that – 60 sec – so my concentration is certainly improving! Of course the 15 minute warm up & 15 minute warm down were done as usual – and some of you managed the optional few strides at the end on the run.

We welcomed another six new people to our squad this week – Samuel Heynemann, Chloe Ohara, Amy Pollock-Hall, Dominique Desbouis, Stefan Zahn, & Michelle Grima. A very warm welcome to all of you – and congratulations on your great participation on Tuesday evening.

Congrats to Ash Watson on his sensational run in last Sunday’s Canberra Marathon. Ash, in his first marathon, finished a fine 2nd – in 2 hrs 24 min 51 seconds.

For those participating in the Run For Kids this coming Sunday please send results to Leanne.
