TV's Update - Wed 27 June 2012

posted 29 Jun 2012, 03:13 by Monash Running

This week – Tuesday 26th June


Slightly lower numbers this week  for a range of reasons, but in the circumstances 41 was excellent.  Once again a nice night for running – so we did our session on the grass again – 15 minutes of ‘straights’, much to Darren’s satisfaction.

It was great to welcome back Laurence E – fresh after his exploits in the Comrades Marathon in South Africa in early June. Laus has promised us an item about his experiences in this iconic event – for our website.

And one new member this week – Ben Frantz – welcome Ben – we hope you’ll stick with us.

My thanks to my Physio mate Peter Bruce for being so kind to attend this week & chat to those of you with injury issues – or even minor twinges. Peter will be back again in the not too distant future.

Most of you continue to show gradual improvement – and this will continue – just try to run as often & regularly as possible outside our Tuesday evening sessions.

Don’t hesitate to ask me if you would like any help at all with a regular training program and/or ideas on opportunities to get into a few races to test your progress.

·        We had a huge number of apologies this week – 30+ - mainly from those of you who are in warmer /distant climates during the Uni break. My sincere thanks to all of you who took the small trouble to let me know of your movements.

·        I know that many of you will be away for the next few weeks – but some advice of the period of your absence would be appreciated please, if you haven’t told me already.


Congrats to everyone who participated in the Cross Country races at Brimbank Park last Saturday -;

16k – Leo Enter, Shaun Lenehan, Justin Bott, John Evans, Len Johnson, Rohan Simkin, Dennis Gellert

6k – Georgina Beech, Stacey Bulger, Alice Enter

And thanks to Peter Bence for his photos – some of which have made it to our facebook page.


Of course will be in action on Tuesday next 3rd  July 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.


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 (30th June) - at Jells Park, and I’ll be there. 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.

Stay for a coffee/chat after if time permits
