Kyoto done! A new PB for me by about three mins in Marathon number six - got to be happy with that.
Confident of hitting my 3:20 goal this year, with at least two more planned, along with some serious and committed training.
Running has become such an important part of my life and every Marathon, especially, is a gift.
For this one, I give particular thanks to David Hartley for his sound and encouraging last-minute advice; and Garth Calder for his top notch mentoring in the art of conquering hills - both really helped me today.
Also to Sam Burke and Simon Keane, my two running mates of long standing, for great craic on the long runs. Here's to many more!
And thanks also to the many Milers I've met over the last three months. You're a great crew and I'm so glad I signed up! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผ MOD

Some colossal performances at Maribyrnong this morning, PB's all over the shop. But, for the first time in my parkrun experience, the times are wrong in the athletes' favour. All the times shown in the results are 5 or 6 seconds quicker than the real times. Despite this, David Hartley, James Howe and Scott Smith still ran PB's, as did the unknown runner, Mark Symes. Bella Richardson's time looks like a another PB, but wasn't (although it was very close!). ... See MoreSee Less

Nice, cool hit out at the Westerfolds Parkrun for the Miler HiRTers this morning.
The lovely flowing downhills were perfect to avoid the Dodos and to test out the โ€œSecret Sevenโ€ elements of great downhill technique.๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿž
Awesome work by all led out by Nick Turner, 1st with a new Westerfolds PB in an amazing 17:29!!! Also a PB for Ross Prickett by 40 secs in 21:06 and Elisa Maree in 21:22 and Ingrid Morrison in 23:17 with some great downhill technique displayed!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜€
Thanks also to Chris Wade and new member Trevor Craggs and for joining in the fun! Andrew Ross too for taking some of the pics.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€

Today was the Downhill Running Session of HiRT and was well attended by all the regular HiRTers.
Adrian Hoel "Courts" also joined us for a "run down" on the "Dodos" to avoid down the hills and the "Secret Seven" elements to develop great downhill form and technique.
We also had a guest appearance from the 5Ms Relay 2018 course designer Ewen Vowels, Smurf in his trademark blue, giving the HiRTers some good insight into the hills, gradients, road surfaces and terrain that they can expect on the course in next month's big Miler Championship relay event.
Then it was off to the downhill section of the "Killer Loop" for 4 sets of 3 reps at variable effort levels to try and put the theory into practice!โ›ฐ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜€
Here are the the screen shots of what we covered in today's session for those that attended and anyone else who is interested.

Who is doing what long run from Eaglemont this weekend..?

I could to a 30km (+/-) at 6:30am on Saturday at about 5:00 m/km (gotta be home by 9:00am, otherwise pace would not be an issue).

Otherwise, Sunday at 7:00/8:00am at any pace. Hutz et al were good company last week.

Slight preference for Saturday...

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, ย 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.
