  • Pat,

    Tuesdays 3k Time Trial: Photos/Video/Results and report can be found here and congratulations everyone who took part.

    I know that the 3k Time Trial can be a challenge that becomes tenfold at this time of the year when you are training with few goals in mind. It can still be extremely rewarding though. Claire Bellenger thinks so:

    I can't believe how nervous I get for a TT.

    • I am not likely to be doing a PB
    • I have no pressure from any coaches
    • It is not my livelihood at stake

    Yet every TT Tuesday I approach with some excitement and plenty of trepidation. The butterflies go full blown into earthquakes in my belly and until we start the run I can barely absorb the conversations going on around me.

    But you know what, it is worth it. I love that feeling of achieving something before work whilst all my colleagues are sleeping. I love that glow of self satisfaction that doing your best effort provides. And I just love getting faster and faster.

    Thanks to my comrades in pain (Matt and Scotty) who whilst still recovering from their Melbourne Marathon efforts decided to run with me to push me faster. I wouldn't have achieved it without their support.

    And thanks to YOU Pat for all your encouragement and support.

    Mark White also provided this feedback following his great pb.

    PCRG music - "Your Selection" - Possibly you would like to share your taste in music with your fellow PCRG members and if so whack your best pumped up music onto an ipod and bring it along to PCRG.

    Your songs will need to cover the core of the session (Core Songs) - lasting between 15-20 minutes. Warm up and Warm down songs can also be supplied.

    NB: Core Songs will need to be similar to what has been played - Dance/Techno - fast beat with few lyrics. Over to you!

    I had a great paddle in the river this morning - it was glassy and smooth. Glenda was out running with her mates (solo) and I passed Sara and Trudy just as they had completed their run and I could tell they had both enjoyed the hour or so they had just spent on the City paths. It's a privilege to live in our great City!

    Attending PCRG in the morning and/or on Friday will allow you to have one up on your work colleagues before your get your teeth into a solid/productive days work.



    Claire - So fast her fingers can't even keep up!
