If anyone is interested in a fast lap of the tan tomorrow, I am planning on doing a 4 lap progressive. I will start from the pillars at Midday and will be doing the following laps - 14:00 / 13:30 / 13:00 / something under 13 hopefully! If anyone is interested then let me know, or just turn up at the right time. 👍 ... See MoreSee Less

In light of the forecast conditions, I don't think AOP is a great option today. Rog has put up an alternative at Airlie St, but for people looking to perhaps stick to the tan, the other alternative is 6x750m on 4mins (4:30 for the B Group). Given a better forecast for Thursday, the 400m reps at AOP are probably best postponed until then. ... See MoreSee Less

MMM Puffing Billy results. Anyone missing?

According to the results, Stephen Miller had the honour of being first across the line behind the first train.

I've assumed Andrew Sheehan ran under Paul Sheehan??

James N Pascal Simonetta also ran but under another name. What was your result Simo?

Also worthy of note, Michael Stone's son, James, 33rd place 18-29 age group in 50:47....apparently he doesn't run much!

Since the 400m reps tomorrow hurt my hammy just thinking about them, I'm planning an alternate session tomorrow (I'm also skipping Airlie Thursday since AV race Saturday).
8 x Killer Loops on 3:45 => 30 minute duration, 5.6km distance.
Any and all welcome, meet at the Pillars at 12:30.

The Melbourne Midday Milers

The Midday Milers offer city workers an informal but structured lunch-time training program. The group meets at 12:30pm each weekday at the Tan Track, only a five-minute jog from the Flinders St / Swanston St intersection. All levels of runners are welcome to join us for a variety of casual, easy runs on Monday, Wednesday and Friday or more intense, speed / fartlek / hill sessions on Tuesday and Thursday. To ensure we cater for all standards of runners,  the Tuesday and Thursday sessions have dedicated A and B groups. To see how this works, refer to our fortnightly Training Program.

The famous Tan Track is one of Melbourne’s most picturesque running venues. We start most runs from the “Pillars of Wisdom” – on the Tan Track just south of the Swan St Bridge.
