Dickson Oval speed session

I am sitting here nodding off so I had better wake up, write this quickly, pack my gym bag and go to bed for some sleep! After work today I went to speedygeoff's Thursday Dickson Oval session. There was a good turn-out of people and the weather was mild and perfect for training - marred only by the fact that it becomes dark quite early and then it's difficult to see the potholes!
Distance: 8km
Session: A long warm up loop of the oval followed by a short warm-up loop.
Main set: 12 x 200m sprints with 100m slower jogs between.
It was tough but a good work-out. It was great to catch up with Barb who has just returned from another trip to refresh her kiwi accent.
Best of luck to all those people running in the Canberra marathon on Sunday. I very much envy you and will really miss running it this year. However, I will be out there cheering you on in my CR gear!


  1. See you on Sunday Strewth; Mango & I will be on cheering duties too!

  2. And you get to refresh yours by talking to Barb!
