hair of gold and lips like cherries

Training last night at Parliament House were Abi, Caroline, Christopher, Colin, Craig, Emma, Ewen, me, Helen, Jochen, Joel, Katherine, Mick & Neil. We ran 640m intervals on 5 minutes, six of them, on a 300m circuit which involved running the uphill section three times. Notably, new green green grass has been laid on these hills around Parliament House and the surfaces are soft, even, and most pleasant to run on, unlike the squares of rough grass down towards old Parliament House that we have recently used. A very enjoyable session.

Today I race at Acton over 5k: last year's time is the time to beat: 21:35. If I can achieve that, it will be the first real sign that my training is on track.

I am mentioning again that online entries for the March 13 Weston Creek Half Marathon close Wednesday 9 March, tomorrow.

  1. Nice run by Heidi in the 1500 m. Huge PB.

  2. Yes, Heidi's motoring. 5:20 is quick. Not bad time and A/G % from old Helen in the 15 too.
