Happy 99th birthday Canberra!

Speedygeese 'Looping' at Parliament House
Next year we will celebrate another century - Canberra's 100th birthday. Today was a Canberra public holiday to celebrate the 99th year of its birth. The gym had limited hours but I did go to Club Lime at CISAC for the first time. Having been a member of a much smaller gym and last week paying my first visit to Club Lime in Kaleen which is also small, it was just a tad intimidating to enter such an absolutely enormous gym. I managed to follow my chest, back and abs program after a 6min warm up on the rower and 20 push ups. It felt quite strange for a while but I know I will get used to it. Today was exceptionally busy being a holiday. I'm hoping it won't usually be this busy - even parking was at a premium!
Later, after delivering some Avon and Teddy's walk I headed for the speedygeese session at Parliament House. I managed just one loop round Parliament House before it was time to start our session. After our warm up loops we headed for the area beside the oval where we ran an undulating 1km loop as fast as possible followed by a slow 1km loop incorporating one of the fitness trail stations (in my case either push ups on the bars or tricep dips). We repeated the fast loop 3 times and the slow loop twice after our initial test loop. We finished with a warm down loop of PH and I ran an extra loop to make up my distance for the day. It was a really pleasant day today, not too hot or cold, perfect for running.
Total distance: 12km
