TV's Update - Wednesday 13th June 2012

posted 14 Jun 2012, 05:00 by Monash Running

This week – Tuesday 12th June – threatening weather – but a great night in the end


Great evening – big turnout of 46 hardy souls – esp considering Uni Break – well done to all of you who made the effort to join us last night.

Thanks to all who sent apologies – but I must say I was disappointed at the number of you who weren’t there but didn’t take the trouble to advise of your absence.

I must say it was great to welcome back Celine, Stacey, Mikhail, & Shubho who are all recovering well from injury issues.

A few  more potential new squad members joined us– Lawson Chan, Maria Kanelopoulos, Ben Frantz & Ian Henderson  – we hope you all enjoyed the experience enough to return.

And a couple of Stacey’s fellow Victorian Softball team members – Sarah & Lauren were welcome guests

The baseball  oval was very soft, but usable fortunately – so we did one of the Squad ‘s favourite sessions – Mona Fartlek - a quite testing 20 min session – and everyone survived. I believe I did have a minor lapse with the whistle – but overall it was an enjoyable & most beneficial work out

Please try  to get in a few other runs during the week and/or on weekends – it really does help – and not much time is needed. Even a short run is better than none.

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.

·        Thanks again to all who sent me apologies for their absence on Tuesday night.

·        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.


Of course will be in action on Tuesday next 19th June 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


Hi All

Our  Hill session WILL go ahead again next Saturday morning (16th 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.

·        You may be aware that presently Parks Victoria Rangers are on strike. If that is still the situation on Saturday and the gate to Jells park is closed at the end of Waverley road just park at the gates – plenty of handy parking there - and walk/jog to our normal meeting point – it’s only a couple of hundred meters extra at most.

Congrats to Laurent, Alice, Amelia, Len, Marc, Han, Peter B & Shaun on their good runs in the Athletics Victoria 15k Road race at Ballarat last Saturday

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.

A great number of you now have diaries – how about starting to bring them along on Tuesday evening for me to review your progress ?
