Brilliant performances everyone, well done and keep up the good work.

In planning stage
I will invite the speedygeese to "sign up" for one of the following so I know who I am working with:
Training pattern for the speedygeese working towards 3k/5k for next track season
Training pattern for the speedygeese working towards 800m for next track season
Training pattern for the speedygeese working towards half marathon/marathon for next March/April/May

And my own goals: in the short term
ACTCCC 8k Cross Country
ACTVAC Half Marathon
Then what? The program being prepared for the track season starting in October looks very good. But I will wait and see the date of the 2011 National Capital Marathon and any 2011 Half Marathon before finally deciding what I am training for.

Happy Birthday to my son Nathan, 39 yesterday!


  1. what if you want to cover all three training patterns??!!

  2. [Edit?] "I will invite the speedygeese to "sign up" for one or more of the following so I know who I am working with"...

    So there will be someone in each group even if it's the same someone? Good!

  3. Looking forward to seeing what you next goal is. You sound very busy organising a lot of things for your gander.

  4. 3k/5k for me.

    Happy belated birthday Nathan!

  5. Any reason why there isn't a 1500m group?

  6. My answer is not G rated.

  7. According to "the special rating table", G did rate the 1500m, but not the 800m ........

  8. He didn't rate the 100, the 3k steeple or the high jump either.
