TV's Update - Tuesday 24th April 2012

posted 24 Apr 2012, 17:52 by Monash Running

This week – Tuesday 24th April – we ran in the rain!

 

To say the least – not such a  great night for running – but we survived – just.

 

Last week we had great conditions however I said then that ‘cold/wet nights really aren’t that far away, & that’ll be a real test when they arrive’ – well that weather arrived this week and over 30 of us met the challenge head on !

 

We warmly (not so warmly actually - weather influenced) welcomed 2 more   ‘newies’ this week – Jack & Nina  – we trust you will all stick with the squad – and enjoy/benefit from the involvement.

·        This week, after the usual warm up around the campus, we did a session of 15 minutes of hill efforts on our popular Lake circuit . Thanks to Chris & Gordon for setting up the circuit in the rain & cold.

 

As you’re no doubt well aware -  the more runs you do regularly during the week the quicker your fitness will improve – and it doesn’t take long at all for any improvement to become noticeable. The runs don’t need to be too long – just getting out for a run is a terrific start.

 

And don’t worry about how far – go for time – even say 15 minutes for a start is fine then build up. Do more if you can, depending upon your state of fitness.

 

 

Thanks again to all who sent me apologies for their absence tonight – hope to see you back soon, if not next week.

 

Of course will be in action on Tuesday next 1st April 2012 – rain, hail - or sunshine !

 

We are in action on Tuesday evening next week.

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.

 

A Reminder

Please keep off the main (fenced) oval when warming up /warming down – we don’t want to get on the wrong side of the friendly groundsman.

 

Saturday Morning Hill Session at Jells Park

 

Our  Hill session WILL go ahead again next Saturday morning (28th April) - at Jells Park, and I’ll be there of course. We’ll meet at the usual  spot, ready to run, at 8.30am SHARP (please try to 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. Hope for a big turn out this week

Stay for a coffee/chat after if time permits.
