    good 3.15 km 00:20 10:13 pace

    First time out in 3 months since Waiheke 1/2 marathon. Easy 20 min run around home. Was going to start again after Speedshow but got a cold that lingered on.

  14. RUN
    good Takapuna 5km Beach Race 1 5 km 00:29 09:17 pace

    I guess one is supposed to do a recovery run about now, so a 5km race counts so long as you take it easy! Quads still a bit tight from Sunday but actually got better on the 2nd lap. Time is ok cons... read more

    good Auckland Half Marathon 2015 21.1 km 02:13 10:09 pace

    Quite pleased for 8 weeks training, my target for this race was under 2:20. Pros: The big screen at Windsor Reserve, the All Blacks won; Finished my 6th Auckland and 9th in total 1/2 marathon; acce... read more

      Very nice done Graham, .. and you blasted your goal out of the water. It was great to catch-up with you again.

    great Hillcrest flat 20min 3.11 km 00:18 09:17 pace

    Perfect morning for a short run. Supposed to be a short easy jog, can't believe the pace so I'm calibrating my stopwatch! I did a proper warm up for a change instead of using the first k ... read more

      Just back from a massage at the physio to get rid of all the tight spots, nice. Realised that if it looks too good to be true then it probably is, my watch calibrated out ok, but I had clicked on the wrong route giving a pace of 4:41. Have now replaced with the right route, with a more credible 5:46 pace.

  17. RUN
    good Glendhu Road return 8.4 km 01:01 11:38 pace

    Quite a hilly run, just took it at a steady pace, didn't want to over work the legs at this stage. Rained on the way back, came back 2 mins faster but it is a bit of a downhill run.

  18. RUN
    good Manuka Road return 5.31 km 00:34 10:14 pace

    Nice evening run, plan said easy jog 5km but push the last km if you feel like it. Started out pretty cruisy, turned at 18:06 and came back in 15:42 (5:55 pace). There's a heart-breaker hill a... read more

      Hills. I hate hills. But I know they are good for my soul. Clearly you think a lot about hills. I always try and maintain a constant effort ... so if a hill slows me down, so be it. Your training sure seems to be having an impact.

      For me, constant effort is pretty much the same as constant heart rate. Yes, my cadence changes and my strides get shorter going up ... but boy, my little legs turnover like crazy going down ... it can be really hard to match the effort down. So, because I like the flat, I'm a poncey runner eh! :)

      Yeah, nah, you're not poncey, you don't do endless circles, and I've gone a bit poncey myself now! I now appreciate the merits of flat running as you can see from the first weeks of my current programme

      Yep. I ran the 2014 Ak 1/2 m on it ok, then I dropped a 6kg weight on my big toe (same foot) last summer which kept me off it for 3 months while the nail grew back. Thankfully everything is back to functional now!

    alright Mokoia Rd, Balmain Rd return 9.82 km 01:06 10:47 pace

    2 things - I'm really over running in these conditions - chilly damp SW wind, no sun (it came out 2 mins after I got home) and I'm just not fit enough to really enjoy the longer (10k +) r... read more

      ... if only you left it to run later in the day ... Despite your problems, it seems like a solid run.
