Down to Rushcutters for the alternative HuRTS session today that saw possibly the smallest turnout in history with only 5 and that included myself. Still, what it lacked in numbers it certainly made up for in talent as the likes of C.T ,Enda, Todd and Elle were all out to add there finishing touches towards this weekend’s races.
Marked out a course for the 6 x 600s that we wanted to do, and despite marking it twice before the guys got down it still worked out long when it came to the efforts (630m) Bloody hopeless?????. Anyway with C.T ahead, I had Todd sitting on my heals for most of the session, with Enda behind running at 3.45per/k (his race pace) for Sunday, Only a relatively short session but was pretty happy with the way it went today – not so much the times but how I was able to hold form, even if it was for only 3600m
Times and pace were;
2.05 @ 3.09 per/k
Pretty much wraps it all up now before I head north Sunday, although will be out in the morning for one final spin around the park. Training has gone OK for this prep although have been disappointed with the last two races (Striders & Launy 10K) that knocked the confidence a little and I could have done without the latest cold over the past 8 days ? Still, I can’t do any more so it is what it is and we’ll see what develops?
The footy excitement continues tonight with two more matches to watch, My tip Argentina play the impressive Swiss team, that could spring an upset, as to could the Belgium against the U.S.
Timmy’s tip – Take the Argie Bargies & Belgium both to win 2-0
Elsewhere in news from the motherland comes that ‘Old Rolfie’ is going to be spending time in the Slammer come Friday after the Guilty verdict came down on him and his Wobble board. Jeez, he’ll be needing more than his 3rd leg when some of the naughty boys get a hold of him behind bars. Bloody Pedo….. can’t believe I grew up watching the likes of Jimmy and Rolf on the telly, whatever next? …….Don’t tell me, they’ll be calling up George and Zippy from Rainbow .
Very Sad state of affairs.
On a brighter note , I’ll be going through all the runners for Sundays Half / Marathon and give you my predictions for everyone that may surprise one or two?
