awake my soul

Posted by speedygeoff On Tuesday, January 31, 2012 | 5 comments
There were 17 runners at Parliament House last night. Miranda, Ewen, Andrew, Lincoln and I ran 8k early. Other runners joining us for a Rose Garden 200m speed session were Cookie, Andy, Bronwyn, Caroline, Craig, Havilah, Kym, Laura, Lucia, Mick C, Peter & Ruth. Some did 10 loops on 3 minutes, some did 12 on 2:30, others did their best. The chin-up test saw Havilah set a new standard for women, she completed ten straight. Craig edged me out in the men's contest, he did 1+2+3+4+1 while I managed 1+2+3+4+0. Our target is the end of February to catch up with Havilah!

Last Saturday Suzie, Andy & Zainab had a good long run from the Acton Ferry Terminal, while I was away in Wagga.

The results are impossible to locate as the website is a maze, which means (a) the results are probably posted in some random place by someone as confused as I am, and (b) I am looking in other random places. Bronwyn reports she ran 1:45.44 for 4th female.

Song of the week
Mumford and Sons - Awake My Soul



I only discovered this group late last year and they are already my favourite group. This is certainly my favourite song. But all their songs I do like. Nearly all.

  1. I was super impressed with Havilah's chin-ups. And she lowered herself to completely straight arms between each one. Incredible!

    1. Agreed Ewen - she was a pleasure to watch - such style!!

  2. Small correction speedychief - It was Andy who ran with Zainab and Suzie.
    Craig ran a long run but not with the others I believe. Congratulations to some very fast speedygeese and especially to Janene and Heidi on their medals on Sunday:)
