List of PBs.

Best PB changes every day – Most Days Lived.

Parkrun is 22:24.

10km to just under 49 (in Club Run).

How long have you been running?

Started less than 5 Years ago.

Never been previously able to run any distance – used Couch to 5k to get started to be able to actually run the distance. Started running basically to get fit and helped drop 20kg of weight. Initially speed was very slow but was able to build this.

What do you do other than running for exercise?

No other exercise – I am not a gym junkie and not into bike riding as whenever I ride it always into the wind.

What other activities fill your time?

Strangely enough I work full time – I do like to get out and walk my dogs – who thrive on the opportunity to get out. Plus of course my family with six grand kids.

Do you have any rituals before a run?

Monday Wednesday and Friday I am up at 5:50am and by 6am I start running – generally 5 to 6km sometimes 10km if I am preparing for something and I start slowly and gradually build up – I don’t have a warm up as such but I do start like a warm up probably because I am still asleep for the first 2km. The other days are evening sessions with the club, Parkrun and usually a gentle run or walk on Sundays.

Do you agree that anchovies are awesome?

You can not go wrong with pineapple.

What future goals do you have with running?

I was going to do the half marathon last year before I got injured so looking to do this next year.

Will Seb ever run a full marathon?

It is hard enough to get him out to run let alone a full marathon and the short answer is no.

Do you have a favourite event or place to run?

I have enjoyed the 3 Run for Kids events I have done and enjoyed achieving 5 Minute per KM in first event of this over 14km. Looking to running Melbourne Marathon next year and also the City to Surf in Sydney – enjoyed the Sydney Bridge run last year.

Have you considered an international event?

Only thing I have done is doing Parkrun in UK & Ireland in 2017 – looking forward to doing the same next year in May.

The Four Vines Experience

The Four Vines Running Festival experience is running and weaving through four working vineyards, it’s sprinting up the finish straight and sipping wine as you cross the finish line, it’s about spending an afternoon in the sun with family and friends at the Finish Line Festival. It’s more than a run and in 2019 we’re also raising funds for the local Nagambie and Bailieston CFA brigades.

When entering please select the Shepparton Runners Club team. The Shepparton Runners Club has 12 runners #sheppresenting. This is a fun event on an extremely picturesque setting.


MOVEMBER CHALLENGE!

Grow a Mo in November and win a prize! The best Mo will be awarded at presentation night. More details to come


Run Against Violence

What is it – Run Against Violence is a volunteer-based, member association established to use running and other sporting activities as a conduit for engaging the broader community in family violence prevention.

Starting 22 November 2019, groups of up to 20 people can walk or run 1300km from Broken Hill to Sydney. The route retraces the real-world 2017 StepsTogether Ultramarathon. This Challenge is the only opportunity you have to run this route, virtually. More than 2200 people across the world participated online in our last Challenge. This year we expect it to be even bigger.

The best part is that while you’re having a heap of fun, you also get to be a super-hero. By taking steps together, you will make your community a better place for others.

We are on a mission to create a positive culture within our local communities, to remove the stigma and social barriers that often stop people from talking about their experiences with violence and asking for help when it is needed.

Our approach is inclusive.  We believe that anyone can be a target or perpetrator of family violence and that we all have a role to play in prevention.  Whether you run, walk or roll, everyone is welcome

How can runners get involved

A few years ago Mairead Macdougall, Megan Wood, myself and a few others captained by Julie Brock Thomas participated in the Run Against Violence virtual challenge.https://www.facebook.com/runagainstviolence/Last time our team was heavily stacked with marathoners that could clock up big weekly km. This year it would be good to have more participants in our team and not rely on the marathoners. You don’t have to be one of the 150 SRC financial members to participate in this virtual team challenge/cause. EVERYONE IS WELCOME

The entry fee will go through Julie, so don’t enter directly yourself. PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME WHEN MAKING THE DEPOSIT SO JULLIE KNOWS WHO HAS ENTERED. HER BANK DETAILS AREJulie Thomas BSB 063698 AC No. 10298179

Recipe of the week

Sundried Tomato, Spinach, and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Ingredients:
Two large chicken breasts
3/4 cup Kraft Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing & Marinade (salt and pepper and olive oil would also work fine)

1/2 cup sundried tomatoes
1/2 cup roughly chopped spinach
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

Instructions:
Marinade the chicken breasts in the dressing for a few hours (I actually skipped this step. I just dumped some on right before I cooked them because I was doing it last minute).

With a large sharp knife, carefully cut the chicken breasts like hot dog buns. Don’t cut all the way through.

Open the chicken breasts up where you cut them and layer on the remaining ingredients. It’s okay if you can’t fit all of it in, you can just leave some out. Just squish in as much as you can.

Stick a couple of toothpicks in near the opening to keep it all together.

Heat up a pan (I used a cast iron skillet) and sear the meat on both sides. You can lower the heat and continue cooking the meat on the stove until it’s done or, if you’re using a cast iron skillet, you can put the pan in the oven at about 190 c.

You could also just completely cook it in the oven on a baking sheet if you don’t feel like searing it. Just make sure you cook it until the center reaches 73 c. on a thermometer.

Annual General Meeting

The 2019 Shepparton Runners Club AGM is on Thursday 10th October 2019 at the Clubrooms, following training. Everyone welcome.

It was great to be joined by competitors from Melbourne, Echuca, Wangaratta as well as the Shepparton Runners Club to build the event.

Well done to everyone who competed and completed, results are attached.

Thank you to all who volunteered enabling us to continue to offer local racing.

We look forward to welcoming you to our third race of the series being the Sprint Distance Duathlon (5km Run – 22km Ride – 2.5km Run)

Part Three – Burnt out? Run it out! By Tara Daniel.

This year has been full on and right now I am honestly feeling a little burnt out. The way I know this is when I get asked a reasonable request such as “do you think you could put your washing away?” I respond in a totally irrational unreasonable way. This is not the best feeling at the beginning of get fit training but on the plus side, exercise (and eating) is my stress relief, so it is good that I don’t have an excuse to bail on it.

Monday, I went to hot yoga at lunchtime thinking a nice gentle slow flow would be good…I HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE SWEATED THAT MUCH!!! I had sweat pouring off me and my yoga mat was nothing but a giant puddle, I almost felt sorry for my colleagues, not only did they have to deal with my cranky pants in the morning, I came back really really sweaty albiet in a better mood. I’m really enjoying the hot yoga; the heat and the movement is really helping with the leg issues! The leg issues were then nicely dealt with at Fix Myotherapy where a “number of firetrucks” were mentioned. I have officially decided quads are more painful to have massaged than calves. The massage then meant that I walked the Tuesday SRC training which was really frustrating but sensible…I got home on Wednesday to NEW SHOES!!!!! Oh my god they are the sexiest things I have ever seen…Saucony Iso (kids!) and a trusty pair of Peregrines…I tried out the Iso’s on the cross country course on Thursday and they were brilliant. I had minimal knee pain and my calves only got a teeny bit tight towards the end so I feel like I am winning! The shoes got another testing out at parkrun where I did 400’s and 200’s and ran my fastest time this year. This gave me a boost that I am not as unfit as I think I am and my new shoes are spectacular!

Sunday’s long run was interesting. I lost my audiobook virginity and I started nutrition training. I have never really used gels, I just don’t like them. The only time I have tried them was on a training run almost two years ago and I almost vomited. It made me cry and feel nauseous the whole run. I have found that the combination of jelly beans and tailwind has been ok for me in the past but I don’t think that will cut it for the full and I also have some concerns about carrying a bag of white powder through the Philippines and into Japan. So I thought I would test out a gel at about the halfway mark. I have a variety of flavours and brands that I am testing out…today’s was a chocolate Gu with caffeine. I admit my body felt better after taking it. I stopped and had it with water as recommended by others who know better than me, the flavour was not unpleasant…a burnt brown sugar more so than chocolate but it was ok. I got a little nauseous almost immediately afterwards then the butt clenching began…I lasted another 3.5 km then had to swing by the house to use the amenities….I felt better after that and my last 4 km were great.  I felt really good. I was pretty tired by the time I finished but really happy that I got it done. All in all it was another consistent week, my mood has thoroughly improved and I only have 25 more weeks of training!

Runner Profile

Name: Hamish Reid.

Age: 45 years

What are your PB’s?

The 5km is 22.13, the 10km is about 47:00, the marathon is 4:22: (I will have another crack at this in Melb on the Oct 13th, last year I got cooked in the heat and really struggled with cramp)

Do you prefer solo or collegiate running?

I have been doing my long runs with a bloke from work, Christian Willmott, he is very good at asking questions that require long detailed answers when I am really struggling for breath.

What is your current running routine?

Right now I am doing the tempo session on Tuesdays, Wednesdays I will do a 12km run at marathon pace and another 6km or 7km on Thursday and then 33km Saturday before it all starts again.

What got you into running?

I was playing quite a bit of competitive Rugby before moving to Australia (I actually played 2 tests for the Philippines in the Asian 5 Nations Championship) in 2010 and needed something to keep my fitness up. I started out biking but didn’t like the early starts, bogans trying to side swipe me in utes and magpies.  Mum, Dad and my father in law are runners so were very encouraging.  Mum actually has the age grade record at Shepparton and in Christchurch Parkrun, she is 77 and runs a 31min Parkrun.

What is your favourite post long run meal?

Eggs

Do you use earphones for running? Music or podcast?

If out by myself, for a long run I listen to the below

Con Artists

Russia if you are listening

The Money Café

Planet Money

Hidden Brain

Hardcore History  

Are you married to any events, that you like to do over and over again?

Not really, the last Shepparton running festival was a ripper

Do you have any superstitions or funny routines before events or training runs?

I bet I have the same routine as most of you, which if missed can require a hiding spot and a handful of grass

Do you have any brand loyalty to shoe or activity companies?

Mizuno – they used to have an online tool which helped you select shoes which was great

Are there any events you would really like to try one day?

I would like to try some trail runs

Dylan takes a gift glory

The Stawell Gift has a long and proud tradition in the Goulburn Valley.
Tommy Deane (1946), Noel Hussey (1964) and Glenn Crawford (1995) are all locals to have won the main event and junior Dylan Scoble had his moment to shine on the big stage this year.
The aspiring runner took out the Little Athletics handicap 1600m final in a time of 4:44.753 following an inspiring run from the 13-year-old.
Running off a handicap of 190m in the last race of the traditional Easter Monday event, Scoble produced an inspiring performance to receive the winner’s sash.
Only taking the lead in the final stages of the race, he defeated second-placed Solomon Miesen by .3 of a second to take the glory.
Shepparton Little Athletics Centre president Aileen Zanelli was at Central Park at Stawell and said no-one deserved the win more than Scoble.
‘‘He had a great run and I was so thrilled for him, he’s a lovely boy and he tries so hard all the time,’’ Zanelli said.
‘‘He’s a humble champion and he’s got a great heart … he loves distance running.’’
Scoble’s mother Karisha Ryan said her son had not yet realised the grandeur of his success.
‘‘It was extremely exciting and he had a few people there watching, there was pretty amazing support at the finish line, but I don’t think it’s sunk in for him yet,’’ she said.
‘‘He was gracious and pretty casual about it and he didn’t expect it.’’
While Scoble may have been relaxed, Ryan was anxiously awaiting the final lap.
‘‘With a lot of kids and a lot of different handicaps it was difficult to work out where we were sitting,’’ Ryan said.
‘‘I knew he was going really well and he kept overtaking all these kids … coming around on the last bend Dylan picked up and had enough left to have a big sprint in the end.’’
With a passion for longer forms of running Scoble might have aims other than taking out the famous 120m Stawell Gift in the future.
In the week preceding the Easter long weekend, Scoble completed his first half marathon in Albury and managed to stay fresh for the 1600m race.
With Little Athletics’ longest race the 1500m event, Scoble thrived on the opportunity to focus on the longer distance with the talent a keen member of Shepparton Runners’ Club.
Ryan said SRC coach Chris Armstrong had had a major influence on Scoble’s improvement.
‘‘Chris at the runners’ club does a lot of work with him as well as the group, but he always gives Dylan some different goals to do and he’s been such a positive mentor for Dylan,’’ she said.
Scoble’s love for running comes from his grandfather Rob Ryan, and Scoble also puts his endurance to use as a boundary umpire when not playing football himself.
He was joined by his step brother Max Carroll who showed his prowess in the sprint disciplines, making the Little Athletics 400m final.
With a heavy workload Scoble also contested the 400m event, while both brothers competed in the the 100m and 800m races with Reeve Evans also taking part.
