This is a great photo of M carrying the Queen's baton which I found on the website. She was very excited as you can see!

Six Weeks to Go!

Activity: Swim 6.45am
Distance: 1km

A slow relaxing swim with a lane all to myself. I couldn't believe my luck! It was great.

Activity: Run with speedygeoff's group
Location: Parliament House
Distance: 12km

Comments: Having missed a couple of speedygeoff's sessions I was a tad worried about tonight. However, it turned out to be a good session which I actually enjoyed in spite of myself. Marg and Caroline were both there which was a bonus. We had a warm up loop then we ran 8 x 80secs as fast as possible every 4 minutes through the winding paths trying to keep in the shade. We had to try to run a little further each 80secs and I managed to do my best distance in the last 80secs and felt quite good. Afterwards we ran another warm down back to the start. At that stage we stopped and stretched and Ewen, Caroline and I went for a very gentle 3km extra warm down to make up the distance to 12km.


  1. It was good to run in the shade with a little breeze and less heat than recently. And you must be getting fitter, as well as being better suited to the longer intervals.

  2. Great photo of Margaret!

    Pity I missed brekkie - my favourite time of the week.

  3. We'll just have to repeat the brekkie on Friday cj!
