dream stuff

I dreamt last night that we were running handicapped 200m intervals in training today. Are my dreams trying to tell me something? How do I organise the starts and watch the finish at the same time? Not a problem in my dreams, where I still imagine I can run very fast. Which is a good thing I guess.

BBQ stakes and patty cakes
Not exactly the stuff of dreams for me yesterday, in the 6km BBQ Stakes I ran out of legs after a reasonable first km and found it tough. Helen had a dream start to her W50 career with a very good time on her birhday. We enjoyed Natalie's patty cakes after the run.
Katie 25:32

Ken 26:46
Helen 27:30 recent pb
Gary 27:41
Roger 31 something, he would not say.

Sorry to announce Bronwyn's birthday a month too soon. I did the same with Mick's a couple of months ago. It reminds me of when close friends sent my wife her birthday card in March this year a full month early too. We haven't told them.


  1. I'm curios about this "recent PB" thing. What are the rules? Can I call my next 10k race a "recent PB" if my last 10k race was in July?

    I think I'm going to try for "recent PBs" as my M50 PBs are lasting too long!

  2. "Recent" means whatever you want it to mean, and time is an illusion. I went to Scotty's pirate party very recently, it was his 30th birthday party, but he has just turned 34. Also, at the same time, I haven't run well recently, not since the 2009 Half Marathon, which was way back in May.

  3. You must take a notepad with you during your dreams so you can write down the details for these workouts! haha!
