Miranda, Ruth and I ran 8k in the rain first; then the rain eased and Andrew, Bronwyn, Christopher, Garry, Gary. Helen, Jodie, Joel, Kat, Neil, Rachelle & Yelena joined us for a warm-up and then 30 minutes of 50m jog up the ramp from the rose garden, 200m fast, 230m jog back to the rose garden. Not surprisingly, none of the Melbourne competitors were there. Joel, Gary and Helen managed 14 laps. I was pleased to complete 13, Joel just lapped me at the end, and my legs were complaining during the last two sprints. A good turn-out and a good session. It looked like it was hailing heavily over on the Brindabella Ranges, but that is where the hail stayed.
Helen is in fine form
