Striders try different things in the summer holidays

Locky and Daniel Cooper are both keen Striders Juniors like Gus Wong, so when, by chance, we were on holiday in Oahu at the same time, we did a bit of training - Striders style. We did not drop standards! We did the full warm up, then ten times 1 minute with a 1 minute jog in between, then a sprint relay and strength exercises at the seafront. Home from home. We met at the iconic 'Stupid Factory' before breakfast.

David Gardiner, Hannah Gibson and Caroline Yarnell had fun at the second Manly Dam 10.2K trail run. The next one is on Feb. 10th. Prizes are great - and most are spot prizes - so worth turning up. It's a lovely setting and you get a free breakfast thrown in. Hannah and Caroline were both second in their age group, and David was 4th - but as a lot of the top place runners were 18 or under (eg. 2nd), this is more impressive than it seems!
