eating her curves away.

Quote from grand-daughter Amelie Hall, aged four:
"Little Miss Muffet, sat on her puffet, eating her curves away"

Today's training at Stromlo: we found "track closed" signs as expected, and the grass looking a very suspicious yellow colour. Plan A was to jog over to Deek's Forest Park and run our intervals there, which we duly did. The km stretch alongside Cotter Road has been graded for cyclists, making a very nice running surface where previously the track had been rough and eroded. We ran down hill for three fast km intervals, returning back up for the recoveries. Participating today were Tony, Miranda, Janene, Heidi & I.

Not yet available: AACT track results from 17/10 and 23/10. Joel, Yelena, Thea, others may have run.

Identity theft: Any emails from Doug Fry's yahoo account today can be ignored. His account has been hacked and someone has been posing as him. Yahoo has now suspended the account for at least 24 hours, but not before I and many others, presumably his whole contact list, were sent an email asking for money. The wording was not quite up to Doug's high level of clarity and articulation.


  1. I wish I could eat my curves away, lol!

  2. As Amelie's mum said, "why should it work for Little Miss Muffet and not for us?"

  3. The new Stromlo course can guarantee sub 4 min kms and Troy could like go sub 3 min! Woo hoo
