Marking Time

While for some teachers in Canberra it has been Marking time, I have been marking Time: just icing the leg and waiting for the rain to stop out there. We had six degrees maximum yesterday, but that was achieved at 9am after which it dropped to four degrees for the rest of the day. It rained here and produced snow down south. The leg icing might have been a pain in the cold weather, except we have a nice warm house so it is all good. And who wants to go anywhere in these conditions, let alone run outdoors?

It is the third of our 2k time trials tomorrow. And last week I forecast a water logged track, remember? It should be fun. If the track is not closed. The rain is forecast to intensify today and tomorrow.

Report on Monday night training:
Emma, Helen, Katie, Yelena, Caroline, Kathy, GeoffB, Neil, Ewen, Joel, Adam, and Ken ran 20 hill sprints on 90 seconds - I am so sorry I missed it!

Song of the Week. Hallelujah was sung by Rufus Wainwright in the movie Shrek. The original version was by Leonard Cohen. Here is a live version by Bon Jovi. With songs like this to listen to, who cares if I am not outside, running?

  1. "Marking time" ... "School of running" ... Get it?

  2. This is an interesting version of the Hallelujah song.

  3. Ha ha. "Hallelujah" .. becomes "Mark Veduka". In honour of our mountain runners, I think I will write a song to the tune of Hallelujah called "Mount Majura" or get Ewen to, he is skilled with the pen!
