Quote of the week: "Our patience will achieve more than our force." - Edmund Burke
My training progress
last week's target: 110k
year total to date: 1,345k in 13 weeks
this week’s target: 90k. Easing off for the marathon, this week and next.
weight: 64kg ▲: Like Louise, I find that chocolate loading works "a treat" for increasing weight.
How will I achieve my winter goals? (published on Saturday)
April thru September, after the marathon dust has settled, I hope to increase my weekly base from 110k to 120k, and whenever there is a free weekend, (free of races, that is), I will see if I can add a few extra k. (kilometers, not kilograms). I will keep Wednesday's BBQ Stakes as my one fast hit-out each week.
