My training progress
last week’s target: 80k
achieved: 84k
year 2008 total to date: 1685k in 20 weeks
this week's target: 100k
weight: 63kg ▼

song of the week:
“I Will Possess Your Heart”
Death Cab For Cutie, from “Narrow Stairs”
How I wish you could see the potential
The potential of you and me
It's like a book elegantly bound
But in a language that you can't read, just yet
You gotta spend some time, love
You gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find, love
I will possess your heart

Potentially I could have run much faster in the Half Marathon. But not to worry, next time. Which raises the question .. what now are my plans? My next big goal is the AMA Track championships in April 2009. So I am going to have to set some intermediate goals. I don't have any more half marathons planned, in fact I have nothing planned except serious training for the 5k for track season leading up to April. Everything I do between now and then will be about running a faster 5k.

The training pattern documented here still applies.

So for a start, there's a 1500m run this Sunday, at the first of the High Noon meets! It will be an M60 1500m pb and it will be very very slow!

And here's a link to where the half marathon results may appear


  1. Great result in the half Geoff. Congratulations!

  2. Thank you Rob and all.

    I MAY have come second in the M60s - if so, that was unexpected - we will just have to await the official results!
