Comeback After My Winter Of Discontent

Posted by sook54 , 13 September 2011 - - - - - - · 8,596 views

So it's been a while. A long while. A very very long while!

Since my last post things have not gone very well at all runningwise. BUT I am now back on the wagon - have food diary to shed a few unwanted kgs, rejoined the gym and best of all have a program to get me to the Central Coast half on November 27 in good shape.

Stay tuned for more...

Smh Half Marathon 2011

Posted by sook54 , 15 May 2011 - - - - - - · 1,687 views

Hello readers, if there are any of you still left after my lengthy absence. Other writing projects have taken over my time and my brain I'm afraid.

I did the SMH half marathon this morning. This wasn't really a target race for me (I'm aiming for the Macleay half-marathon in a month), but since I was away for work this week and couldn't do...

Humid Intervals, And The New Smh Course

Posted by sook54 , 01 March 2011 - - - - - - · 1,424 views

Report on today's intervals first, then response to ninjette's question about the new SMH half course.

It was so humid this morning! After I got home sweat was pouring off me for about 20 minutes.

In view of the humidity I decided to take the warmup and cooldown easier than usual

warmup
3.05km in 19:25 avg pace 6:22

Round The Bays

Posted by sook54 , 27 February 2011 - - - - - - · 1,590 views

I haven't been sticking to the programme this month, because of a 2 weeks' hiking holiday in NZ. When I wasn't running I was hiking some very steep hills and I think it has really paid off. I'm feeling much stronger.

Here's the summary of my activities since last blog:

Shocker!

Posted by sook54 , 06 February 2011 - - - - - - · 1,102 views

A very disappointing 10km run for the first Sydney Striders 10km of 2011 at Homebush on Saturday morning. Didn't start well when the person supposed to be taking over from me on prerace registrations didn't turn up so no time for a warmup before the race.

A couple of minor hiccups including shoelace coming undone didn't help in the first lap...

Relaxed?! Intervals

Posted by sook54 , 03 February 2011 - - - - - - · 1,103 views

Ran this evening when it cooled down a bit because of pilates in the morning (my first pilates class for 6 weeks - and it showed!). I set off at 6 but it was so hot I went back inside and waited for another 45 minutes.

warmup
3.31km in 20:28 avg pace 6:11

6x30s (30s) relaxed
1. 112m @ 4:29 (84m @ 5:56)

Happy (hot) Holidays

Posted by sook54 , 02 February 2011 - - - - - - · 1,041 views

I have the rest of Feb off work  :yahoo: so looking forward to plenty of running and walking in NZ. It was atrocious yesterday afternoon, so glad I ran in the morning when it was still cool. I really notice how much later the sun is getting up these days, suits me very well so I can spend more of the run in the shade.

This morning was my usual midweek...

Apps Versus Garmin

Posted by sook54 , 01 February 2011 - - - - - - · 1,456 views

My Garmin died when it got very wet during the brief but intense downpour on the occasion of the Sydney Summer Twilight series Yab Nur run a few weeks ago. Being a bit of a cheapskate these days (since I've gone back to halftime work) I've...

New CR look, new blog entry...

Posted by sook54 , 31 January 2011 - - - - - - · 943 views

Well a little late to post my first entry for 2011 but hey it's still January!

I've done 85 km or so this last week, 287km for the month, so feeling a hell of a lot fitter than when I started the month overweight and just generally feeling bleagh from the December overindulgences. Celebrated NYE with Rach and Mr InAus and Mr Sook at the 9pm...
