A new routine

I wrote a little while a go about my strength workouts. They are working a treat. If I miss more than one day (I try to get a short run in every second day) I actually miss it. For anyone who knows me, this is a big thing. I've never been that into gym workouts. Even … Continue reading A new routine

50 Reasons I Love Running

Love this post, so many awesome reasons. One of myfavourite…those fluffy slippers. I’d have to add the ‘long hot shower post run’ . Way better after after a minimum of 10-15km.

I’m about to start a new marathon training season! Yay!

I’ve really enjoyed this off-season and have 100% fallen back in love with running, especially without pressure or purpose. That being said, I’ve always loved running a lot of junk miles and it’s going to be hard to tone it down, focusing more on quality than quantity.

And so, here’s my little love letter to the sport, also known as 50 Reasons I Love Running:

Twelve months ago when I was barely running and definitely not in any kind of competitive manner.  I saw the ads in the paper and said "next year I'm going to run that".  If only I'd known then what I know now. That by the time I … Continue reading C2C – the one that started it all.

Nearly time…and fulfilling a dream

This time last year I made the decision to run the City to Casino. I made this pledge when I was not doing much running, or not enough to really get anywhere, and had no inclination to do other events.An 11km road race that is huge in Hobart. Popular. And fast. ~runs off to google … Continue reading Nearly time…and fulfilling a dream

First race ever…4 years on.

The following links are too two posts I did 4 years ago after my first ever race. Something done on a whim and not repeated. Until now.

My Workout

Distance: 4.13km, time: 27:56, pace: 6:45min/km, speed: 8.88km/h. Yesterday's run without my support was the wrong thing to do. Stuffed today's run. Went down the hill and returned by going back up the hill. I have to learn how to run up hills! And it's not by walking them.
