Sleeves Cut Off

Food – yoghurt/muesli, apple, juice, muesli bar, chicken burger w/ chips, beans on toast.

Exercise – about 25k in 2.5 hours (same course as 29/07).


Note to self: missing even one long run is detrimental to your training plan.

2nd note to self: you can run all you want, but you’re not seeing your abs until you cut out the burgers and chips.

Powered along during the middle section of last night’s run, but felt strangely off balance for the first hour. The last 30 minutes was all about the internal arguments…

“You can walk for 1 minute when you get to the top of Franklin Avenue.”

“Walk when I see the top of Franklin, got it.”

“When you get to the top of Franklin!”

“Okay, okay…”

Sore calves this morning, but luckily I’m booked in for physio tonight. The deceptively strong women they employ will inflict so much damage on my thigh muscles that I’ll forget all about the calves. Aiming to run for 2.45 on Sunday, all going well, and then work up to 3 hours on Sunday 30th, aiming for 30ks. Nice numbering, eh? That will give me about 3 weeks of tapering, which seems to be the way to go.

Here’s my sister and I cruising to the finish at the City to Surf. Hate the game, not the players.
