Two more weeks to go!! Knee is feeling good and I'm feeling okay. This week was a bit less intense due to my classes being cancelled but that isn't a bad thing I suppose. I leave Wednesday for the US and this will probably be the most challengin... Read more

In no particular order: 1) My pets and their unconditional love 2) My husband and family 3) My health because I learned a couple of years ago when a friend and coworker got leukemia and passed away 6 months later that you have no idea whe... Read more

Marathon Training week 13

A bit late with this but I had a great 22 miler although it took me a little longer to recover from it. Probably didn't help that I slipped on some concrete while filling up water at mile 5.5 and fell on my butt and hand. I was really sore the n... Read more

My final motivation is my dogs. I love my dogs and knowing how happy they will be if I walk them on the beach provides motivation to at least do that every day. I also know how happy it makes them if I do any form of exercise that involves me si... Read more

I had a little bit of an easier week this week with a shorter long run and minimal extra workouts besides classes. It was nice and I think it was good for my knee as well as it felt much better in my 10k race on Sunday. So another week down! Get... Read more
BLC 20 Goals and Before Photos
Friday, September 14, 2012      8 comments

I must be honest at the start of this BLC goal blog. I’m going to the US for a month from the 3rd of October to the 29th of October and I plan to eat and drink, possibly a lot, and I’m not going to apologise for it. The last time I was home was ... Read more
Week 11 Marathon Training
Monday, September 10, 2012      5 comments

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

I swear after I blog on here to vent things improve! Paul came home and wasn't mad, realised why I was upset and said he'd try to come up with some plans next weekend. Not sure it will happen but I appreciate the effort. Work has been busy but n... Read more

Week 10 went well. My interval run was good quality and my long run was a bit slower but included some massive hills. I was super sore for most of the end of the week due to lots of assisted pull-ups on Wednesday. This weeks long run is 20... 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
