Annette's Golden Week

Posted by speedygeoff On Monday, November 27, 2006 | 3 comments
quote of the week: The most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well. -- Pierre de Courbertin

My training progress
last week's target: 100k, actual 65k
this week’s target: 100k
weight: 63.5kg and falling. maybe. possibly.

Not the best week, the niggles won so 100k didn't happen, I pulled out of the BBQ Stakes run after 600m with calf pain but immediate treatment worked. An average 3000m on Thursday, days off Friday and Saturday, a "very average" Vets Handicap on Sunday. Poised to get back into it this week if the heat wave doesn't intervene?

song of the week: Nothing In My Way - Keane, from Under The Iron Sea.

“It seems to me that you're having such a nice time”

advantage!

FOOTNOTES

1. It was Annette's week - a member of the Australian record 4x800m team on Thursday, then winning the monthly handicap on Sunday. She will get faster, too!

2. Monday training is definitely on - although I may not be there for a Monday or two, being very busy at present. Trevor will take care of things.

3. I will re-start Saturday morning training at Aranda first week in January. And possibly 30 December? If you can make it then, let me know.

  1. Surely it doesn't get cold enough to wear gloves in Canberra?

    Annette is running well - a deserving gold medallist.

    Trevor was mean tonight - as an honorary sprinter, I found the session way too hard.

  2. Thanks Geoff that quote made me feel a lot better after a seemingly awful escarpment classic run.
    Actually it was awful and the quote great but you might understand when i decide to blog about it...
