not the most common of sights

Training today
Humid conditions at Stromlo Forest Park but great for training. Mick H ran 3 x 1km intervals averaging ~3:58, and Michelle about the same, averaging ~3:56. Spotted many friends there including Trevor C, Kathy S and daughter Ann, and Elaine & Glenn. I came along not to run the kms this time, but to supervise and to top up my weekly distance to 70k. Maybe next week.

And, a new world record for the M55 3000m was set by Keith Bateman on Saturday evening in Sydney. 8:56.8.


  1. 8:56.8! That's so good. Wish I could run 100 metres at that pace.

  2. I am pretty much in awe of this guy. As well as jealous, because nothing was happening with me, I mean NOTHING, when I turned 55. (7 1/2 years ago)
