  • Pat,

    You would be hard pushed to find a City as brilliant as what Brisbane is as far as a training venue is concerned. I was in Melbourne last weekend and as great as what "The Tan" track is - there isn't a "free" pool on offer to enjoy post run.

    The mercury is starting to rise and how glorious it is to have a dip in the South Bank pool post PCRG cool down. Feel free to bring a towel to PCRG and store in my car.

    Maybe you don't want to go the whole shebang and if so there's some physiological benefit to be gained by dipping your legs in the pool. Cryotherapy ("cold therapy") constricts blood vessels and decreases metabolic activity, which reduces swelling and tissue breakdown. Once the skin is no longer in contact with the cold source, the underlying tissues warm up, causing a return of faster blood flow, which helps return the byproducts of cellular breakdown to the lymph system for efficient recycling by the body. Cold water not only suppresses inflammation, but helps to flush harmful metabolic debris out of your muscles.

    Socks/Socks and more Socks: There's a strong chance you'll go home a winner following PCRG during Dec and Jan. The Australian Industry Group (Ai Group) will be sponsoring our PCRG Pre Gold Coast Summer Campaign. 10 random draw prizes consisting of (quality) "Hilly Socks" will be on offer @ every PCRG session.

    PCRG members will be entitled to win no more than 1 pair of socks at each PCRG session however each session is a clean slate. If lady luck is on your side you could potentially win 10+ pairs of socks throughout Dec/Jan.

    Ai Group have also once again come on board as naming rights sponsor for our 2012 Gold Coast campaign. Timex Watches and numerous other prizes will be on offer @ every PCRG session during the 10 week period prior to Gold Coast.

    Thank you Ai Group for supporting PCRG!

    P.S. I'm keen to revamp my web site. Is there anyone out there in PCRG land who may be up for it?

    Hilly Socks - second to none!

    I met Ron Hill pre 1986 London Marathon - Ron is a true legend! This meeting encouraged me to try "Hilly Socks" some 25 years later. I'm particularly impressed with the Mono Skins and can honestly say they're the best fitting sock I've ever worn.

    Hilly Socks are professionally made with comfort second to none!
