9th January 2015

early start today, with a 20km walk to work on the schedule. made the mistake of not wearing the new Hokas; the previous pair are still fine for general purpose wear, but really not at their best for 20km of walking or running. slightly sore feet = lesson learned I have to say, despite a

6th January 2015

down to the gym this morning for a bit of cross-training based around on the rowing machine. the really good news is that my left big toe is so well healed and recovered that I could strap my feet into the rowing machine no problem at all. plan is to hit the darkrun “beep test”

on the schedule today was a 20 minute run, then a walk later – however… today a friend of mine was running his first ever marathon. not at an official event, no raceday atmosphere or crowd to help him get through it, just a solo 42.2km attempt, raising money for 2 great causes. so along with

slow and sluggish

the week so far can be sumarised as slow and sluggish basically the effect of doing 120ks in 4 days has been felt, and amplified by the eventual need to compress a lot of distance into fewer sessions than intended. so a rest day on Tuesday, a run that became a walk yesterday, and a

4 days, 120ks…

this weekend has been a bit hectic to say the least, and it’s been hard work to fit in time for training, let alone journaling! two big reasons for that; firstly I am now on day four of a “120 kms in four days” challenge – i.e. to do 120km of walking and running in

back to training journal basics…

daily journaling has fallen by the wayside over the past months, and it particularly went pear-shaped once I stopped following a formal training plan, with a specific target race in mind… but now, I’m on about week 3 of the craziest training cycle of my life to date, and it’s getting increasingly important to get

training catch-up

due to various reasons, the training journal has received far less of my attention than I would have liked. so, rather than try and catch up on all the details, I’ll whizz through a quick summary here, and resolve to get back to daily journaling… highlights in recent times include completing the “100kms in 4
