 Tuesday Evening Running Squad at Monash Clayton


Hi All


This week – Tuesday 8th May – was another great evening for running


It’s amazing what difference a fine night makes to our numbers – a great turnout of 72 this week.  

We welcomed 4 new squad members on Tuesday – Stefan Lai, Derrick Koo, Yuki Hirakawa & Scott ?. We trust you all greatly enjoyed the session and felt most welcome.

And we welcomed back after an absence – Isie Drewett, Alison Thorburn, Carlo Chiodo, Reece Hodge, Katherine Monotti & Josue Albarran.

This week, after the usual warm up around the campus, we did the our 8 x 60sec efforts (60 sec jog/float recovery) session.  I must say that there is just so much obvious improvement that I can see in a great many of you.

Please try hard to get in a few others runs during the week/on weekends – it really does help – and not much time is needed. Even a short run is better than none.

Thanks again to all who sent me apologies for their absence on Tuesday night  – hope to see you back soon, if not next week.

And - If any of you would like me to review your running diary – just bring it next Tuesday.

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.

I trust that those of you who have elected to join my Aths Club - Glenhuntly – are greatly enjoying & benefiting from the experience.


Of course will be in action on Tuesday next 15th May 2012


We are in action on Tuesday evening next week.

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.


A Reminder

Please keep off the main (fenced) oval when warming up /warming down – we don’t want to get on the wrong side of the friendly groundsman.


Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park


Our  Hill session WILL go ahead again next Saturday morning (12th May) - at Jells Park, and I’ll be there of course.

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.

Stay for a coffee/chat after if time permits
