30 nov 2013 – reach

saturday is running rest day on the NMMFG schedule, and included a nice leisurely start to the day. while I don’t do too badly in the sleep stakes during the week, it’s always nice to bank a couple of extra hours on a saturday. the body appreciates it, as does the brain. today will mostly […]

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGgMZpGYiy8&w=560&rel=0] yes, i know, i’ve been a bit of a slacker on the old journal front the past couple of days… a few computer hassles at work and a few other bits and pieces sucked time out of the day like it was going out of fashion… even this journal entry is being written quite […]

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4kPGT0C_Ms&w=560&rel=0] wasn’t sure how i was going to feel this morning; went to bed last night feeling very tired and drained, knowing that the scheduled training for today was 1km repeats at 5:00 per km pace! luckily i woke reasonably early, and feeling a little refreshed. the 1km repeats put paid to that, and i […]

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63OdRmba5Xk&w=560&rel=0] after a weekend full of running, I still managed to wake early, but opted to make today a running rest day. need to give the legs (and the rest of my body) a little break before hitting the 1km repeats tomorrow! feeling a little on the flat side energy-wise, so a rest is definitely […]

recent running recap

recent running recap

i’ve been a bit of a slacker on the recap front recently, not entirely sure why. it could quite possibly be because i’ve been giving a fair amount of attention to the “running changes lives” ebook project, and getting on board with the Heart Foundation. to rectify this a little, here’s a very quick rundown […]

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1AJmKkU5POA&w=560&rel=0] seems to be a week for waking at 3am or just after – which is fine from a “getting plenty of sleep” perspective, but it makes for a compressed/rushed early morning! got an “ok” intervals session in, before heading into perth for the usual friday routine of recording the weekly nmmfg tv video, uploading […]

21 nov 2013 – all of me

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=450p7goxZqg&w=560&rel=0] well it certainly seems like I’m needing the beauty sleep at the moment. another slightly later start meant choosing between a later bus, or a shorter run. I figured i’d see how it went once I hit the streets, and apparently i was in the mood for a slightly faster, shorter run. with that […]
