The Last Chase....

.......with Virtual Partner until Thursday night!

Chev track would have been almost submerged, so I decided on another venue for today's short & easy speed session, starting outside these gates that lead into the paddocks where I walk the dogs each afternoon.

I paced out 150m with Mr G-armin on this 400m bitumen deadend, no traffic road to where I'd marked a "finish line" with a stick in the middle of the road.....the shoes were added later!

This was meant to be an easy session....just practising the pace needed for Thursday night's mile race.

Program: 6 x 150m in 49.5 to 50 seconds each, jogging back to the start.

Short warmup & a few drills. Holding Mr-Garmin in my hand again for easy/constant viewing & set for 49secs. finishing time.

Results : 48; 48; 49; 49; 48; 48

Leave for Canberra tomorrow. Thursday night, 7:00 p.m. AIS track, ACTVAC Mile Race. Back Friday with the report!


  1. Good luck in Canberra LL!!!

  2. Run well LL. Looking forward to the report already.


  3. Go get 'em!!

    Can't wait to hear all about it.


  4. Wishing you all the best LL !

  5. You sure have the prettiest looking scenery to train in. Everything is so green.

  6. Don't Carbohydrate Load toooo Much.

    After all, a mile is only a little "teensy weensy" bit longer than 4 laps.

  7. Best of luck Lucky Legs for tonights run. I truly wish you break all the records :)

    Can't wait to hear your race report.

  8. Hi all,

    Luckylegs hasn't been able to blog since returning from Canberra.

    Firstly, computer problems since the mile, and now she's in Bowral Private Hospital having some tests done. These relate to some health issues she's been having for a while and explain why she didn't have a good race in the mile.


  9. Hey LL,

    Sorry to hear you're not well. Thinking of you and hope you're on the mend quickly. Might even see you in Canberra with a bit of luck.

    Yours in the long run,


  10. Hope the tests reveal what needs to be done to restore you to full health.

  11. LL,

    best wishes with the recovery and a speedy return to running.

  12. LLs returned home from hospital last Friday. All the tests cleared her of anything 'serious'.

    She's feeling better and went for a 45 minute walk today in the rain!

    Her computer is still broken - hence no blogging. The new modem should arrive later this week.
