Tuesday Evening Running Squad/’Run Monash’ at Monash Clayton

Hi All

· The photos I took last night are now on our Facebook -

· and also on our website

I ‘tagged’ many – but not all – so additional ‘tagging’ would be most welcome.

We enjoyed our first run together for 2014 last night, Tuesday 7thJanuary - and we’ll be back in action next Tuesday evening 14th January 2013 – ready to run, at 6pm SHARP.

In 2014 nothing has changed, we’re located at the Baseball field, & using the pavilion over there. Access by car is quite good & for handy parking - enter from Ring Road East & find a spot along the road around the back of Oval 1(Wellington Rd end). Only a short walk from there to the baseball pavilion.

New & potential Run Monash members please let me know if you’d like more detailed directions

There is no parking at the rear of the pavilion – or on the gravel road above. Parking is very handy however in other nearby areas & is free after 4pm.

This week – Tuesday 7th January 2014

This week our session was a set of 200m (approx) efforts with a shortish recovery – for a 16 Minute duration.

The weather was really quite ideal and everyone ran very well – congrats. Once again a few tried barefoot – which I encourage as an occasional change.

It was terrific to welcome as a special guest our former Run Monash member Nina Chevalier. Nina returned home to Germany last year but is back here for a couple of months – we hope to see you a few times more before you depart Nina.

Chris Wardlaw , Matt Shearer, Scot Sharman & Brad Crockett also reappeared after long absences – we hope you four are now back for good !

We welcomed 2 new members week – Ebony Gilbert & Wade Henderson – we trust you both greatly enjoyed the experience & found our group most friendly.

· In recent times we have welcomed lots of new potential squad members to Run Monash. If you are one of these – but have not returned please let me know by return email if you will be back. I really can’t keep people on the mailing list who don’t intend to participate with us on a regular basis.

Thanks to those who can’t attend who send me an ‘apology’ – this demonstrates more than just a casual involvement in our ‘Run Monash’ squad.

Gradually our overseas squad members who have returned home to celebrate Christmas & the New Year will be back = boosting our numbers considerably. We look forward to welcoming you all back in 2014.

· Would you all please make a special effort to mark off/highlight your name on my attendance list each week as that’s the only way I have of keeping track of attendance numbers.

Proposed Thursday evening running session.

We are looking at trialling an informal Thursday evening ‘Run Monash’ training run that would start at around 5.30pm over near the Gym circuit at the back of the Sports Centre. Anyone who might be interested please let me know.

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park

Our next Hill session will be on Saturday morning next, 11th January 2014, at Jells Park, and I’ll be there. I know quite a few have competition on Saturday afternoon so I expect a reduced number of you to attend.

Of course we’ll meet at the usual spot next Saturday, ready to run, at 8.30am SHARP (please be on time) - out the front of the cafe – ‘Madeline’s’.

Enter Jells Park from the entrance in Waverley Rd extension – opposite the Glen Waverley Golf Course.

We had a very pleasing turn out last Saturday for the first hill session for 2014, and everyone handled them really well.
