When is the last time you did something for the first time?

Perfect day.
Well, today is the perfect day for all those people, who said they were going to come along to training, to join us for the first time. Lovely pre-spring weather, with a nice breeze to help you up the hills at Parliament House.

Less than perfect day.
If you were selected for the National Cross Country this year it would have helped if you had trained in the mud. Here's how the course at Oakbank, South Australia, looked last weekend.

Brian, my gym instructor, was there with some of the kids, and said it was difficult to stand on the course, let alone run.

The moral of the story is, train under all conditions, not just on nice days like today,  because you never know what it will be like on race day.


FOOTNOTE
Ha ha I spoke too soon. The weather has closed in, now it looks like the perfect day for practising your crazy weather running. It will be fun, guaranteed.

  1. Wow. Cross country over ploughed ground - just like in England. If Mel managed to get the mud out of her socks I want to know what detergent she used!
