Tuesday 3rd May

posted 4 May 2011, 23:05 by Leanne Dyksterhuis
On a really nice evening for running this week (Tuesday 3rd) we even saw one of our crew still running barefoot. Surely that lark will be coming to an end as the toes start to freeze?

And a huge  turnout – a massive 65 of us this week – with a great number of genuine apologies (thanks for these).

After an early hiccup last night, with confusion over the correct key, access to the pavilion was fine in the end.  Conditions were great for our session – 4 x 60sec (60 sec recovery) then 8 x 30 sec (30 sec recovery).

Of course the 15 minute warm up & 15 minute warm down were done as usual – but not too many of you managed the optional few strides at the end on the run this time.

We were pleased to welcome another 5 new members to our squad this week –Mareike Walther, Rohan Waring, Maeve Barlow, Isobel Drewett & Peter Park. A very warm welcome to each of you  – and congratulations on your great participation on Tuesday evening.

Sorry but our  Hill session won’t be  going ahead this coming Saturday morning (7th May) as a number of us are involved in involved in Cross Country Relays being conducted at Jells Park that afternoon.  But we’ll probably be back in action on Saturday week – 14th May – although there is some doubt about that day as well as I’ll be at Apollo Bay all that weekend for the Great Ocean Road Marathon & associated events. I’ll advise further on this early next week.

Lost & Found: another pretty classy silver colored drink bottle – this time – ECO Tanka brand. I’ll have it with me next Tuesday.

I have an opportunity to get hold of some ‘Brooks’ running gloves – at $20 pr -  less than 50% of retail price. Let me know by return email if any of you would be interested in a pair please.

Best wishes for a good run to any of you participating in either the Cross Country Relays on this coming Saturday or the Mothers Day Classic on Sunday

If one or two of our female squad members would be interested we have a couple of spare spots available on one of my club teams in the Cross Country relays being held at Jells Park this coming Saturday afternoon (12.30pm start) - “legs’ are 6k – and a most enjoyable experience is guaranteed. All abilities catered for. Let me know by return email if interest – First in gets the spots.
