20 Days Until Marathon #3

Posted by RunningM , 19 September 2011 - - - - - - · 560 views

Well, 20 days to get myself a little more ready than I am right now! I know - it's probably not possible... ANyway, I am still going to line up at the start and have a go. PLanning a very conservative race strategy of 6min/km and a good break and rest and refuel every 10km. This is the only way I am a chance of finishing at all. Underdone. Wish me...

Willie Half This Sunday!

Posted by RunningM , 24 May 2011 - - - - - - · 520 views

Have been training fairly consistently all year and have helped 2 wonderful ladies in their training for their first half marathon on Sunday. I am so proud of them! I am looking for around 1hr 55 minutes in this half and I do firmly believe I can do it :) Have started to gain more speed than ever before (which isn't hard because I have always been...

Attempt #2 At The Sub 50 Minute 10Km Coming Up 27 Feb!

Posted by RunningM , 17 February 2011 - - - - - - · 660 views

Wish me luck and fast vibes as I go for the sub 50 minute 10km once again. I was meant to try this last month at the City to Bay but had a bad bad case of bronchitis which saw me on the sidelines for almost 3 weeks. Anyway, since then have been doing speed sessions and 4min30 intervals - the longest being 1.2km (bloody hard, heart rate very high!...

Plan Almost Executed! 51.15

Posted by RunningM , 05 December 2010 - - - - - - · 526 views

Ran the 10km this morning in 51 minutes and 15 secs - very happy with this even though I didn't crack the 50 minutes, I know I can - with a little better pacing I would have had it in the bag - felt good and strong and fit all the way and could have done it all again about 10 minutes after finishing - seems all that marathon training - 1200km - did have...

10km In Under 50 Minutes? Hmmmm

Posted by RunningM , 19 November 2010 - - - - - - · 890 views

That is the plan... you  have to have a plan right!? But not sure if this plan is going to be executed...

10km in under 50 minutes... this morning I ran a 10km in 54 minutes as a training run - tempo - to see what I had to offer - with only 2 weeks until race day I am not sure that I can crack it?

Anyway, let's have a go anyway :yahoo:

Sprint Training

Posted by RunningM , 27 October 2010 - - - - - - · 511 views

All I can say is that Sprint Training after Marathon Training is BRUTAL! Did 6 x 800m sprints (@4.50) this morning and almost spewed.

I was fighting for breath and realising again how beneficial this is to the overall training picture.

I have a new goal - short term - and that is to crack the 50 minute 10km in December - Sussan Women's Fun Run...

Mm10 Stoked!

Posted by RunningM , 12 October 2010 - - - - - - · 650 views

Ran a 36 min PB - crossed in 4:24 after a 5 hour attempt in 2008 for my debut. Now I can stop whining about 2008 and get on with my training!!!!

The whole experience was so very different in so many ways - how I ran it, how much longer it took me to hit the wall and the fact that I could run the last 4 km faster than any other splits make...

Last Week Before Mm10

Posted by RunningM , 04 October 2010 - - - - - - · 310 views

So, this is it... less than 6 days to go and I will be lining up with 6500 of my closest friends for what I hope will be a pleasant mornings running around Melbourne!
There is nothing more that I could have done this year in regards to training given my life situation so I am letting the doubts flow away and knowing that I will do my best on the day.
I...
