August 2010 w/photos
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
Week 8 Marathon Training
Sunday, August 19, 2012      6 comments

Bit of a different week this week with two races. I took some extra rest time because of that. My knee has been about the same - painful after fast runs but otherwise okay. Food has been about the same with eating a bit too much. A work in progr... Read more

Week 7 Marathon Training
Monday, August 13, 2012      4 comments

I'm a bit late with this since my husband and I went to Sydney this weekend to run the City to Surf. It went well. I was happy with how I felt and for the most part I was happy with my pace, especially considering the size of the race - 80,000 r... Read more
Week 6 Marathon Training
Sunday, August 05, 2012      8 comments

Very tired overall this week after Wednesday but feel a bit better tonight. I'm annoyed I skipped my tempo run tonight now that I've noticed it is to be 8 miles. I missed it as I did a long ride this morning when I haven't been on a horse in a c... Read more

Recap July and August plans
Thursday, August 02, 2012      6 comments

So July's goals.... 1) 100 pushups in a row on my knees with no breaks, 50 military pushups in a row with no breaks - honestly I have no idea and I'm way too sore to test it tonight. I think I could do the 100 but not the 50. Really need to f... Read more
Strength Training photos

I thought I'd post these photos my trainer took of me and posted on FB. Not quite sure I wanted them on facebook but why not? Hard workout today after 16 miles this morning. I managed it in 2 hours 45 minutes which was great since I ran 16... Read more
Week 5 Marathon Training
Saturday, July 28, 2012      2 comments

This week hasn't entirely gone as scheduled but the beauty of 3 runs a week means that I have plenty of days in which to reschedule the runs. I went to Magic Mike with my coworkers on Friday night so couldn't do my planned interval run since I a... Read more
This made me smile :-)
Monday, July 23, 2012      12 comments

I thought I'd share this link to my trainer's tumblr page. I really liked the article he posted this week, possibly because I'm one of those people mentioned in the blog. And he's right I no longer think it's a big deal to only hit snooze once a... Read more
Week 4 Marathon Training
Sunday, July 22, 2012      6 comments

Not a bad week. I was absolutely exhausted on Friday night but other than that my workouts all felt good. My knee is still bugging me but I've booked into the physio for Wednesday so hopefully he has some good advice. I also got my yoga dvd and ... Read more
Training Plans
Tuesday, July 17, 2012      4 comments

I've been having a bit of a rethink about my marathon training plan. I initially put together my plan based on a few different sources but liked the idea of having three runs with purpose each week - long, tempo, speed intervals. I trained for m... Read more
Week 3 Marathon Training
Sunday, July 15, 2012      6 comments

Very happy that I got in two post work runs in this week. Especially since it was rainy and crap out. I was also pretty pleased with the 15 mile run mid week. My knee didn't hurt. I was super tired/sore at the greyhounds that night but not unexp... Read more
