What area will you end up in? I'm pretty lucky in that I have 1 track a 5 min drive from home and another track a 10m drive from work. Now if only I could run... :'(

Out in Coburg. Still have the same commute time except I'm on the tram now.

Yeah there's only two good tracks in WA apparently. Melbourne might have more athletic tracks per capita than most other cities outside of the US (where it felt like every HS I saw had a track/football field combo).

Nice! Coburg Harriers track team? I was there the other day seeing clients and the track there is pretty decent.

Yeah I can think of at least 6 tracks on the east side of the city (within a 30k radius).

outside of the densest parts of cities, this is probably true. i miss it. there is one 400m oval in islamabad and it's inside the national stadium.

Yeah they train there. There's at least 25 that I can think of just off the top of my head! I consider myself a synthetic running track connoisseur. Must have run on 20+ over my life.  :lololol:

How much longer have you got over there? Never too late to start up sprinting once you get back. All that functional gymnastics training would put you in good stead.

So yeah as Coges noted we caught up yesterday at MSAC and had a shoot and a few jumps. Coges summarised it pretty well in his log. Warmup was Coges owning me 1v1 (he's good!). I moved house on the weekend prior so a lot of weighted stair climbs/descents, but I felt OK overall. Just a pure lack of solid training. Hoping to catch up again in 8 weeks with more training and see how that goes. Great motivation.  :headbang:

It might take a couple of weeks to set up my home gym but I have a basketball stadium and track 5mins away so should be able to get some decent training in. There's also a commercial gym nearby as well, which I might utilise in case the home gym setup drags a bit. The best thing about yesterday is that despite a decent number of jumps, I generally fell pretty good, just normal soreness. The tib-fib/hamstring tendinopathy has improved a lot.

Also I think I'm 2nd in the "meeting members in RL" rankings now with three (I think LBSS has met a few more members than me).
