monday

quote of the week (for supporters of Victorian AFL teams): "No one ever says, "It's only a game" when their team is winning."

My training progress
last week's target: n/a, actual 50k
this week’s target: another "whatever" week
weight: 63kg and steady

song of the week: The Great Unknown – Evermore, from "Real Life"

Empty bottle cap
Lies on the counter top
It's warm but the rain won't stop
I haven't been home for days

Too much of the same thing
Heading out to the ocean, thinking
Head full of emotions
And the people are passing by

We're on our way back
From the great unknown
Today
Today

Cast my mind
Back in time
Count the reasons why you said
I've got a feeling
I've got a feeling
There's a long long road ahead

I wake up
I wake up
I've been sleeping in my bed
When I get up
When I get up
Music's playing in my head

We're on our way back
To the great unknown
Today
Today
We're on our way back
To the great unknown
Today
Today

And if the dark end of the street
Should rise to conquer me
I won't forget the words you speak
And the destiny I cheat
And the game is up I'm in decline
And I guess that only time
Will let us heal, but I can feel we're
Getting closer now

We're on our way back
To the great unknown
Today
Today
We're on our way back
To the great unknown
Today
Today

The sun is coming out
The sun is coming out now

The CTFR results will appear in the Canberra Times on Friday. How did Team Moore runners go? A brief report from my perspective: Helen finished in 42:58 (big pb), Maria just behind her, half a minute behind them me, Kevin, Katie (big pb) and Gary all close.

I don't want to miss anyone, so I will leave it there, and make a full report on Friday when the paper arrives.

By the way, the third km was short (20 or 30 seconds), the fourth correspondingly long, and also the tenth km was long making the total distance a bit more than 10k.


You may have noticed that the look of this blog has improved recently. That’s because I was so snowed under with important things, I threw in the towel for a while and played with HTML instead. I am happy with the outcome.

Snowed Under

last words
God is talking to one of his angels. He says, "I just created a 24-hour period of alternating light and darkness on Earth." The angel says, "What are you going to do now?" God says, "I think I will call it a day."

  2. Thanks Geoff. That explains why my time was a lot slower between the 3k & the 4k mark!
    I thought it was that hill !
    I only saw 3 markers anyway, 3k, 4k and 9k.
    Good to see everyone again on Sunday. And what a lovely day it was.

  3. I saw all the km marks. Southy, given how fast you were running, 39 something, I am amazed you saw any! The 5km mark most people missed; it was on the right hand side of the road opposite/just after the great mass of walkers waiting for their 10:15am start. I was going so slowly up the hill I passed the 5km mark twice. (For international readers, that was Aussie humour, sorry)

  4. Good one Geoff.
    Hope your leg gets well soon.
    I really enjoyed seeing you all again, catching up with Kathy S, Maria, etc. I look forward to seeing more of the gang this summer.
