I'll be running 26-28km at the farm on Sunday - company most welcome. If anyone wants to join me I have a simple BBQ afterwards. Travel time is around 90 mins from the CBD. I know this clashes with Puffing Billy, but I'll be running at Neerim regardless. Reply here if interested.... Smurf ... See MoreSee Less
For those that didn't get enough of the hills at today's awesome Airlie street session and especially those that are running Puffing Billy or AV Cross Country, I am planning to run an undulating hills threshold session on the Yarra Boulevard in Kew on Tuesday morning (Anzac day) next week. All are welcome for this testing session that we ran end of last year before the 2 Bays Trail Race. It is an out and back course over rolling hills & you can vary the distance between 8ks and 12ks depending on your pace and effort. Fitter, Obama, LG, Katie and others can vouch that this session really tells you where your fitness is at and I think that Luke Goodman in particular really enjoyed the outing! Park on Yarra Boulevard just up from the junction with Chandler Highway. Easy access just off the Eastern Freeway. We will head off at 8am for at 2 to 3 km warm-up before getting into the session followed by a short warm down afterwards. ... See MoreSee Less

KABOOM!!! Dave Alcock has finished the London Marathon in 2:39:28!! What a legend!! Having witnessed first hand the discipline, dedication, hard work and perseverance he has shown over the last 12 months, I can honestly say this result is richly deserved. Congratulations Bermuda - you are now officially a sub 2:40 marathoner. 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
I've signed up for the Launceston 10 on June 18th - apparently the fastest 10k course in Australia (and a pretty good weekend away if I can say so about my hometown!). Anyone else keen or has signed up...?
Bermuda through 35km in 2:11:10 (19:04 last 5km). Tearing up the streets of London! A little slower on that split, but still on track for 2:38 if he can hold it together. Time to dig in and bring it! ... See MoreSee Less
