  1. RUN
    good 5.1 km 00:31 09:54 pace

    Great run and felt as if I could have done a bit more but did not to push it.

  2. RUN
    alright 2nd evening run of the week 3.2 km 00:06:12 03:07 pace

    Again this was not a great run but it still felt good to get a mile or two done. Hopefully I'll get out for another run this week and increase by maximum weekly mileage.

  3. RUN
    alright Evening run 2.9 km 00:19 10:41 pace

    This was disappointing run as I had hoped to get 4km or more. However the wind was quite strong pushing aganst me. While I was hydrated it could have been better and I did not take anything to give... read more

      Thanks. I'm happy just to be getting the running in and happy to wait for my body to respond to the training. Each week I'm aiming to either increase the overall distance for the week or in a single run.

  4. RUN
    good Saturday morning run 4 km 00:26 10:21 pace

    Got out on a Saturday morning. Felt great and had a banana for fuel 15 minutes beforehand. I had a route in my head but changed it to extend the run as I was feeling strong and relaxed. Very happy... read more

  5. RUN
    good Ran home from work 4 km 00:27 10:50 pace

    Started off and as usual the wind was against me for the first few 100 metres. I felt as if I had more energy than previously. Legs still tired and various lactic acid stitches but was able to work... read more

  6. RUN
    blah 2nd run from work during the ... 3 km 00:21 11:05 pace

    I thought I was refreshed enough for this run but this felt quite tough. Only managed a short run. However with this run I increased my weekly mileage, achieving my second goal for the week.

  7. RUN
    alright Run from work 3.8 km 00:26 10:51 pace

    Very happy with this run. My legs felt fine from the small run on Sunday. I think the stretching and using roller on muscles after the run. I wanted to stop once I had receached my previous distanc... read more

      Everyone says that foam rolling helps, so it must be true! I should try it some time.

      Do you realise that for your next run you are not allowed to do less than 3.8 km?

    alright Sunday morning run - 2nd of t... 2.6 km 00:17 10:46 pace

    I got out for a 2nd run this week. It was not planned and I had just eaten breakfast so was probably not the best time. My belly felt sore from what was probably lactic acid build up? I had to real... read more

      Have you tried running before breakfast? It is a good way to get the body to rely on fat rather than glucose for energy - although that may only be true for longer runs. In any case, it feels good to reward yourself with a hard-earned breakie.

      At this point it's more about seizing an opportunity when I get it. Three small kids don't exactly allow too much plannning! I'm hoping to run home from work most days when I get the mileage up.

  9. RUN
    tired Ran from work to home 3.3 km 00:22 10:57 pace

    First run of the new year and hopefully a new fitness regime. It was very tough and only managed 3.3km of the 5km I'd hoped to do. I ran/walked the rest of the way home. I wore a backpack with... read more

      I would love to be doing something daily but I'm a bit away from that yet! It will be a slow, long road back to fitness.
