TV's Update 21 July 2011

posted 21 Jul 2011, 04:29 by Monash Running

Hi All


Yet another wet & cold Tuesday evening for running this week, but the rain did hold off during the majority of the session – and the attendance was up a little on last week – 40 this time.  I expect numbers to continue to rise again as you all return from the break.

Although the oval was extremely heavy again this week , due to the recent rains, we were able to do our session pretty comfortably – 8 x 60 sec efforts with 60 sec recovery after each, with of course the usual warm up/warm down.

Great to welcome another 3 new members on Tuesday- Aline Van Buiten, Ashley Martin & Jared Griffiths – I trust the experience was enjoyable enough for you all to return next week. Additionally it was really pleasing to have Kavindu Bandara & Amelia Aslanides rejoin us after a long absence.

A number of you who have joined us for the first time in recent weeks have not returned since – and have sent no advice of your intentions. I’d appreciate an early note from those of you in this category please. Some will be removed from our ‘roll’ soon if no word.

I handed out a few more running diaries this week  now I want to get a few back for a review of just how you are progressing. Bring them along any Tuesday evening & let me see just what you’ve been doing.


We’ll be in action again as usual next Tuesday evening, 26 July 2011

·         We’re still 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.

·         And we are in action every Tuesday evening without fail throughout 2011

Saturday Mornings in July -  Hill Session at Jells Park



Sorry but our  Hill session from Jells Park won’t be  going ahead next Saturday morning (23rd July).


We won’t be officially back in action until Saturday 30th July. However some may still attend & do the session in my absence.



As soon as I can I’ll put a few recent results up on the website –

But here’s a taste;  

John Evans recently ran Race 1 of the Solomon Trail Running Series, at Studley Park, 11km on bike paths & ‘goat tracks’ – and was 1st in his age category.

Quite a few of you participated in one of the events at the Run Melbourne Carnival on Sunday 17th July. Known results will be on our website soon. If any of you ran but have not provided me with details – please do so as soon as possible.

Also a number competed in the Glenhuntly Club Cross Country race at Norton’s park – in very muddy condition - on Saturday 16th July – results will also soon be on our website.

Our Website ‘Monash University Running Squad’

 As we’re keen to keep the site current, please send to me or Leanne ( )details of any runs or other items of interest.

·        Check the ‘More about our members’ link on the site.

And finally – thanks to Nenad & Leo for ‘manning’ our running stall at the 'Welcome to Monash' for all new students on Tuesday last.
