TV's Update - 23rd October 2012

posted 27 Oct 2012, 21:14 by Monash Running

This week – Tuesday 23rd October 2012


What a great night for running we enjoyed on Tuesday this week !


There were a few new faces, & some we hadn’t seen for ages, among the 59 who took part in the session. A warm welcome to ‘newies’ Mel Gray, Amelia Harrison, & Dilpreet Singh, & welcome back to Peter Cass, Paul Marr, & Kathy Lizama – returning after very lengthy absences.

This week’s session was the tough one ‘Mona Fartlek’  – but was handled very well by all of you – great running.


I took lots of photos of this week’s session – as Len had control of the whistle (thanks Mate) – and these will be on our facebook page very soon!/groups/70531756551/


The surface on the baseball oval, wasn’t quite as good as last week – but we got by – I hope some mowing will take place this week.


With the ‘Summer Athletics Season now under way a number of our squad members are racing on the track, usually of a Saturday afternoon. If any of you would be interested in trying a track race (800m, 1500m, 3000m or 5000m) just chat to me – this can be easily arranged.

Last Saturday Steven, one of our Tuesday night regulars. ran a fine 1.59.0 for 800m - his first time under the magical 2 Minutes for the distance


·        Thanks to those of you thoughtful enough to send apologies if for any reason you couldn’t make it this week.


Don’t hesitate to ask me if you would like any help at all with a regular training program and/or ideas on opportunities to get into a few races to test your progress.


As usual we will be in action on Tuesday next, 30th October  2012


In 2012, as usual, we’re located at the Baseball field, & using the pavilion over there. Access by car is quite good & parking is very handy - enter from Ring Road East & go around to the Baseball field along the road around the back (Wellington Rd end) of Oval 1. You can park at the rear of the pavilion if space – or on the dirt road above if you like



Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park




Our  Hill session WILL go ahead again next Saturday morning (27th October) - at Jells Park, and I’ll be there. We’ll meet at the usual  spot, ready to run, at 8.30am SHARP (please try to be on time) -  out the front of the cafe – ‘Madeline’s’. Enter Jells Park from the entrance in Waverley Rd extension – opposite the Glen Waverley Golf Course.

I know that once again there will be quite a few of our regulars absent this week – due to the fact that Shield T & F competition is on again.

The turnout last Saturday was great again (15 of us)

Running Group Waiver Form – A message from Monash Sport.

All participants of the Running Group are required by the University to complete a waiver form. This form has a number of purposes. It firstly acts as a waiver to advise participants of the potential risks involved in the activity. It will also provide Monash Sport with valuable statistics in regards to who (student/staff/alumni/community) is participating in this activity. The University is requesting information on who is participating in all of Monash Sport's programs so this will assist Monash Sport in their reporting back to the University about student, staff and alumni usage. The form also provides an emergency contact point should anything happen. Hopefully we never need to use this information though!

If you haven't completed a form already, please click on the link below to download a form, complete it and bring it to the next session and give it to me /TV.

I will have spare blank forms with me of a Tuesday evening. Thanks to the great many of you who have completed & returned forms to me already.
