My training progress
last week’s target: 71k
achieved: 65k
year total to date: 3,311k in 43 weeks
this week’s target: 79k
weight: 65kg▼

Last week I did two things I haven't done in years - started at a gym (Wednesday) doing a range of very gentle exercises, and went for a swim (Friday), only 800m first up. However, a combination of that and all the driving I have been doing and then the hills at O'Connor (see below) particularly the down-hills, has stirred up my lower back, so I will take it even easier (if that is possible!) for a while. But the gym and the swim I will continue to do each week until I adapt.

Barbara won at O'Connor!

Look at Kathy Southgate's age percentage! And see how both Roger and Helen tried to slow down at the finish line to let the other go first!

O'Connor Elevation (this is the 4k course)


Sit up very straight!
Stretch 11 - Soleus

Sit on the floor with one leg straight and one leg bent. Grasp the bottom of your foot with both hands. Keeping your heel on the floor, raise the foot and bring it toward your body. If you can't reach your foot, use a rope.

  1. Kathy's good. Just ignore her ;) She should go well in the open CC at Stromlo.

    Looks like Helen still has sore legs from Brindy.
