Challenge Week Three

Week three kicked off with Wildhorse @ Night 25km as night training for BVRT miler. Unfortunately I had a bit of a stack and banged my knee hard which meant I needed a couple of days off to let the swelling go down. By Tuesday all was good and I went out for my speedwork … Continue reading Challenge Week Three

Challenge Day Sixteen – Nothing To See Here

After last night's stack at Wildhorse where I went down heavily on my knees, my left one was pretty swollen this morning. Which meant my 20km road back up run wasn't an option. A shame because my legs actually felt pretty fresh. Enforced rest day. Well I guess I could have gone to the gym … Continue reading Challenge Day Sixteen – Nothing To See Here

Challenge Day Fifteen – Mud, Sand and Puddles

It was lovely not to have to get up early for my long run this morning, because I had 25k to do this evening at Wildhorse. A great opportunity to do a night training run before BVRT in a safe environment as I am not going to go out on the trails at night alone. … Continue reading Challenge Day Fifteen – Mud, Sand and Puddles

Challenge Day 14 – Sunset Walk

An hour easy run this morning followed by a beautiful walk along the river and into the city with a friend this evening. The sunset views from Goodwill bridge were amazing. Caught the City Cat from Eagle St to North Shore and spent some time at Eat St Markets - I have never been but … Continue reading Challenge Day 14 – Sunset Walk

Challenge Day Thirteen – Evening Speedwork

A busy day of work and networking meant that I didn't get out until around 4.30 for my speedwork session. Really wasn't feeling it on the warm up but got into it ok. By the time I got to the cooldown I had nothing left so I cut short and walked home. Still feeling so … Continue reading Challenge Day Thirteen – Evening Speedwork

Challenge Day Twelve – So Sore

Not much I can say about today really. Had a late night and disturbed sleep which is unusual for me so when the alarm went off at 4am there was no way I was getting up. I was supposed to do an hour easy run with my run group but I decided I needed an … Continue reading Challenge Day Twelve – So Sore

Challenge Day Eleven – Back To The Gym

After rejoining the gym a week and a half ago today was the first day I actually managed to get there! Decided to do the 6am pump class which was interesting... it's been six months since I did any weight training and years since I did a pump class. Not sure I would go back, … Continue reading Challenge Day Eleven – Back To The Gym

Challenge Day Ten – Hello Monday

Why is it that it's always hardest to get out of bed on a Monday? I had to really push myself to get up this morning when the alarm went of at 5am. For a moment I almost convinced myself to take another hour and run this evening... But in the end my auto-pilot took … Continue reading Challenge Day Ten – Hello Monday

Challenge Day Nine – Back To The Trails

After a very late night of dinner, dancing and a little bit too much red wine I was so happy that I had arranged to meet up with a friend at Mt Coot-tha this morning for a two hour trail run. I may not have wanted to get out of bed but it was just … Continue reading Challenge Day Nine – Back To The Trails

Challenge Day Eight – Week One Done

After yesterday evenings 5km run I headed out this morning to test myself for an hour and see how I felt. A far cry from the training run I had planned on BVRT course today but I was happy to bag 10km along the river to Kangaroo Point and back with no loss of energy … Continue reading Challenge Day Eight – Week One Done
