Tuesday Evening Running Squad at Monash Clayton

Update – Thursday 26th January  2012

Hi All


We will be in action on Tuesday next 31st January 2012

In 2012, as usual, we’re located at the Baseball field, & using the pavilion over there. Access by car is quite good & parking is very handy - enter from Ring Road East & go around to the Baseball field along the road  around the back (Wellington Rd end) of Oval 1. You can park at the rear of the pavilion if space – or on the dirt road above if you like

This week

A little too hot again for some – but still we had a much improved attendance on last week - 44 toed the line (well, 42 if you don’t count Gordon & I).

A special guest on the night was my good friend Anna Thompson – a 9 times Aussie representative at the World Cross Country Championships (& Teams Bronze Medallist) as well as an Aussie team member (5000m) at the 2006 Commonwealth Games. Anna was most impressed by our squad – and commented on the way you all seem to enjoy the involvement

I must say it was great to welcome Sarah Lloyd, Rohan Simkin, Leo Enter & Mikhail Bhatia back after absences of varying periods (Sarah for maybe 18 months !)

Sadly last night we farewelled Pat Singh – who has been a squad member for a considerable time. Pat is returning permanently to Malaysia now that he has completed his course.

And a warm welcome to a new squad member – Thierry Jarde. We trust you enjoyed the experience Thierry – and will be back regularly. Additionally we had another most welcome visitor – Fiona Enter, sister of squad members Alice & Leo. At this stage we’re not sure if Fiona will be back in future, as she’s not finalised her study plans for 2012.

This week we retreated to the popular hill circuit for our session – to be in the shade – and again you all survived admirably.

Thanks to all who sent me apologies for their absence last night – all reasons were quite acceptable – but nothing too original !

·        Over the past few weeks I’ve contacted a great many of those of you who are still on our mailing list – but haven’t made it of a Tuesday evening for some time. It’s really heartening to hear that most will be returning – eventually. However if you are in this category but haven’t heard from me, please take the initiative & sent me an update on your plans for 2012 as far as our squad is concerned

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park

Our  Hill session WILL go ahead again next Saturday morning (28th January) - at Jells Park, and I’ll be there of course. We’ll meet at the usual  spot, ready to run, at 8.30am SHARP -  out the front of the cafe – ‘Madeline’s’. Enter Jells Park from the entrance in Waverley Rd extension – opposite the Glen Waverley Golf Course.

Hope for a big turnout – and maybe stop for a coffee/chat afterwards ?

I have a limited supply of running diaries for any of you who might like to keep tabs on your training/progress. Just send me a note if you’d like one. And I am happy to chat about training programs as well as review diary entries.
