Right on cue as the A.B.C Pool closes for the winter break, and we headed to the Prince Alfred Pool for the next 3 months it pours with rain. Heavy winds and a top of only 17 degrees made it a tough decision to make it and in turn there was only a small team out with the likes of Walker, Crossy , Champ and Liam from the team.
A mix of 400, 300, 200 and 100s was the go and I just tried to sit on Crossy Lads feet for as long as I could. Saw a 4.48 on one of the 300s and 3.05 & 3.08 for the 200s that was as good as it got although was still happy to finish with some strong 100s for the day.
Tougher pool to swim in then the A.B.C with less buoyancy.
So tomorrow is the State 10k – not in bad shape and once again I’ve done the required training (even put some tempo’s in over the last 4 weeks) so hopefully I can put a half decent time on the board. Will be disappointed if I can’t break 37 mins and secretly looking at 36.40. If I can run that it will mean Chairman Tommy H has to break 32 to take the $$$$$$$.
As the fair blokes we are, I’ve agreed to cancel that bet with Tom re; beating Laura, as its only fair as she is on official pacing duties so we will hold that one over till next month.
All other bets to stand, Taffy has pulled a heart muscle and will NOT front (tell he’s moved to the N.O.T.B) , and rumor has it that Old Stankard has a COLD and may also be a NON starter.
Big weekend of the footy front – Stoke travel to Sheep Country and take on Swansea, tough game with nothing really for the two teams to play for.
Timmy’s tip Swansea 1 v Stoke 1
Have a great weekend
Train Well and stay safe.
Good luck to all running in the morning at Homebush and best of luck to all the HuRTS team up at Port Macquarie for the full Ironman on Sunday.
