Piggies

After a short stay in the US, Michelangelo's David is returning to Europe

My training progress
last week’s target: 100k
achieved: 111k
year 2008 total to date: 2508k in 30 weeks
this week's target: 90k
weight: 63.5kg ►◄

I plan to run the BBQ Stakes on Wednesday and I may enter the Runners Shop 10k on Saturday, although a long race on the road doesn't appeal at the moment. I did enjoy the trails on Saturday! Maybe I am a convert? This is quite a discovery to make at this stage of my running career.

This modern life


I may be spending too much time on the computer. Nevertheless, I shall return tomorrow with a report on Monday night's training at Parliament House and, I expect, the Bush Capital results.

  1. It's never too late to discover the joys of trail running. A few hills taken easy just make it more enjoyable.

  2. If you're a convert, 6' is the ultimate - and you can do it off track training. If you smile like Emma, it doesn't even hurt ;)

    Yelena had a good debut 3k - 5:27/km!

  3. It has to be runnable. Which eliminates 6 foot, nail can, and a few thousand others. Training's OK though. But 6 foot clashes with real running, the AMA nationals. And nail can clashes with my birthday.
