I have now put my entry in for the WESTON CREEK HALF MARATHON! Yes I really have! It's on Sunday 13 March. My next challenge, and always a great event.

Candid Canberra #56. Statue at St John's church in Reid.

Reminds me of that best-of-all Doctor Who epsiode, "blink".

  1. Yes, that 20:40 got my attention when I saw it in the diary. No taper is better? Or one where I maintain muscle tension as per this article?

  2. Interesting article. No doubt that years ago when I was swimming, a weight session just before a swim would improve my performance considerably. Perhaps I am now at the stage where light gym work a few hours before a 5k race is the ideal preparation? Makes a certain amount of sense. Encourages me to maintain the current pattern. Except for last week's "taper".
