Last week was great early in the week. My tempo run was awesome and the 20 miles felt really good. I did overdo it a bit later in the week but I don't think I'm any worse for the wear so that's good. I did enjoy the workouts as well. Chall... Read more

Week 9 Marathon Training

Sunday, August 26, 2012      4 comments

Looking back on this week I took it fairly easy but I know I was quite sore for much of it so I suppose they were quality workouts. The 18 miles were difficult, especially the last 3 miles. I think perhaps I should have eaten once more and that ... Read more

Saturday, August 25, 2012      6 comments

I was recently sorting through old emails and found some pictures of me from my last trip to the US in August 2010. They were from towards the end of the trip so I'd have gained a bit while I was there but that wasn't actually at my heaviest. I ... Read more
