Steve Harris

Wednesday 5.30pm Nudgee 12 X 300m 100m jog recovery Ave 49.5s

Pleased with the effort I was able to put in and the speed seems to have picked up a bit.
However, my left Achilles was pretty sore after the Session.
I will be acutely aware of it for tomorrow mornings run.

Wednesday 5.30am
The only reason to get up early today was to watch The Game from the San Siro, in Italy.

Champions League knockout stage.
Arsenal had drawn with AC Milan in the first leg at the Emirates 0 - 0.
Away goals count double so we needed to score to give ourselves the best chance ( 1-1 would have been enough for us to go through) .
In the 84th min. Cesc Fabregas raced through and hit a drive from 20 yards that skidded off the surface and into the very corner of the net!
My scream (of delight/relief) frightened my wife, and neighbours into the next suburbs would have been looking around at such an astonishing roar at 7.00am in the morning!!
Theo Walcott then gifted Adebayor a clincher into extra time to make it 0 - 2.
Arsenal are the first English team to ever beat AC Milan at their home ground and we knock out the reigning European Champions.
Brilliant stuff!
Puts me in a good mood for the rest of the week.
Track Session tonight at Nudgee.
