Update - Wednesday 5th October 2010

posted 6 Oct 2011, 03:29 by Monash Running

Hi All

Daylight saving kicked in this week – and what a treat that was ! - we comfortably completed the session in daylight, and it really was a great evening for running !

As it was such a pleasant evening we again used the grass oval for our workout – and did a slightly different session. Two laps of strong ’straights’ , followed by 6 X 60 sec efforts (60 sec recovery), then another 2 laps of ‘straights’ A great session – with the warm up/warm down added on.

It was great to have Jingci, Lindsay, Sarah, & Sheryl  rejoin us after an absence. But Sarah’s was really a ‘Guest’ appearance as she & Chris are heading off overseas for 4 months – see you again in 2012 Sarah !

We welcomed yet another 2 ‘new recruits’ this week  -  Alycia Hemburrow & Jahanne Russell  - we trust you both enjoyed the experience – and will be back.

Would any of you who have joined us in recent weeks & have not returned since - please send me advice of your intentions as soon as possible.

I still 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.

We’ll be in action again as usual next Tuesday evening 11th October  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

Hill Session at Jells Park - Saturday Morning next 8th October

Geoff Watt Memorial Fun Run – Warragul – 16th October 2011

I have a supply of ‘flyers’ about this run (2.5k, 5k, 10k, Half Marathon) – which I’d encourage any of you who may be interested to run. Geoff, the father on Olympic cycling Gold Medalist Kathy Watt, died many years ago from exposure when lost in the mountains on a long training run.
