finding strength in pain

Australian Parliament House Check-in. Running early were Ewen, me, Tim, Yelena, then for the main session Cookie, Andy, Bronwyn, Colin, Craig, Jen, Jill, Kym, Laura, Mick, Ruth, Warrick, Christopher as well. We ran relays at the lower flagpoles, ten minutes of teams of 3 balanced, then 15 minutes of teams of 2 with pairs of similarly paced runners forming each team. Chin-up report - I managed 2x3 of the reverse grip chin-ups but only 1 of normal chin-ups, first time I have tried.

From the official results of the TACT Half Marathon: Kelley Flood 1:38.25, Bronwyn Calver 1:45.43

Song of the week: Mumford & Sons "The Cave".

I will hold on hope
And I won't let you choke
On the noose around your neck
And I'll find strength in pain
And I will change my ways
I'll know my name as it's called again


  1. With lessons like that, Simba will grow up to be a very wise lion.

  2. Oops did you see the time that was published - 3.05am? Interesting!!

    1. Yes of course I did. It's the American Pacific time zone, lovingly provided to all blogger users world wide who implement threaded comments. We are hoping blogger will get around to fixing this bug one day in the not too distant future, along with another two major bugs threaded comments have introduced: namely page load opening below the comment section, and emoticons being changed into their text version. Plus a few minor bugs.

  3. Hang on a minute! My Mother, her Mother and her Grand Mother were born in Queanbeyan! And as a baby I was often held up in both hands and turned around, Simba style, by my family members.

    But come to think of it they were probably doing it so as I could see a way out!
