TV's Update - Wednesday 30th May 2012

posted 30 May 2012, 04:57 by Monash Running   [ updated 30 May 2012, 04:58 ]

This week – Tuesday 29th May – another good one for running


We encountered a quite nice night this week – after a few very ordinary days – in fact not everyone was totally ‘rugged up’ – a few ran in singlets/shorts

Another potential new squad member joined us this week – Ze Yu – we hope you enjoyed the experience enough to return Ze. And it was nice to have Eduardo rejoin us after an absence.

We had an attendance of 47 hardy souls, which was excellent given a large number were away for the break, but next Tuesday will be a real test the first experience as Winter 2012 will have started.

Our  session was 15 minutes of 200s with a short jog/float recovery and this went extremely well. As mentioned to many of our regulars I can certainly see improvement in you – almost week to week – so please keep up the runs as much as possible on other days of the week.

No confusion this week at all with the whistle as it was a whistle free session – but give me time – it’ll happen again for sure.

As mentioned above please endeavour 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, this is a great habit to get into & demonstrates your commitment to our squad  – hope to see you back soon, if not next week.


Of course will be in action on Tuesday next 5th 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


Our  Hill session WILL go ahead again next Saturday morning (2nd 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
