Speedygeoff's Dickson Oval Session

I was caught on the telephone by a client just as I was trying to leave the office and as a consequence missed the first warm-up lap of the Dickson Oval. However, I was on time for the next lap before the main part of the training session. The toilet block wasn't opened tonight and I felt decidedly uncomfortable as we set off for our 2km time trial followed by sprints. However, having set a pretty average pace for my first time trial I should not have too much trouble beating it next time hopefully. Speedygeoff intends having a time trial every four weeks.

2km time trial - 10:30
Average pace per km: 5:07 (next time I will aim for 5min ks)

Total distance run: 6km

This was followed by 9-12 x 50m sprints in relay teams of three. Normally this would have been fun but I was still pretty uncomfortable. After this we had a warm-down loop before singing "Happy Birthday" to our speedy leader for tomorrow he turns 59 - one more year before a new age group speedygeoff. Have a great birthday tomorrow - don't run too far!


  1. Thank you for the birthday wishes strewth. If I run 13k, is that too far? No, I don't think so. Of course, having run 13k, I will be turning around and retracing my steps...
    Looking forward to seeing that cbox on your site soon..

  2. Dickson is a long way to travel to run 2km, I would miss BB anyway. I'm not hooked on it though, I could tape & watch later or watch uplate.

  3. Gee, 59 is really, really old.

    What was with Hayley tonight? Is she a drama queen or what? CJ's daughter was stuck between a rock and a hard place.

    By the way, no Cotter for me in the morning... a sleep in!

  4. the way he runs, i believe he wouldn't blow a candle out after such a session
