Just a few easy runs this week as I am still recovering from the 12 hour. Still a bit behind but hopefully will make that up over the weekend. Planning for a big week next week! :Angel:

Adding in a few kms for my runs over the week.

Am also really glad I ran this morning in the sunshine - we now have a massive storm overhead - water everywhere!  Again!

Woo hoo!  Nice one FE!  1000 posts! See you've chosen a new tag line quote thing too but as Sir Emu, shouldn't you be giving away the medals and gold plated shoes, not receiving them? Posted Image

As Sir Emu already said, very short on the hill reps, only 5 instead of the planned 10. My calves were screaming right from the start and I just couldn't manage any more. First 350m of the loop we were averaging 20min/km, its way steeper than anything 6FT is gonna throw at us. Apart from that awful short hill near the end that Emu has a special unrepeatable name for ( starting with C and ending in T) Anyway all up just over 10k so I am still way behind but will be back on track next week and may even get my 5 points by the end of the week if I am lucky. Prob just a quick run in the morning tomorrow before we head down to Dreamworld for an adrenaline fix of a different kind :)

I also had a shorter than planned run.  Only managed 16 of my 32km run.  Felt like rubbish and couldn't manage anything faster than a shuffle.  So called it quits and will try again tomorrow.

RA - I've heard nasty things about that short, steep hill near the end of the race!!!

Just got back from the Stromlo Running Festival. Had a great time and finished a glorious last in the Percy Cerutty Challenge. But still put in some reasonable km.

Good to meet Peter Plodder today at stromlo. A great event, the 30k is highly recommended. Deek has done a great job helping get the Stromlo Forest park and the running festival off the ground. We camped up there last night and had the 12 hr runners shuffling passed us all night!! Deek also had 3 of his Marathon Project runners there doing their 1st 30k run. They had a hard day out (a couple finished around 4hrs)

I did 5km on the Saturday as part of a Sprint Triathlon & then backed up in the Long Course the next day doing the run as part of a team. So not huge km but good fatigue training & good fun.

Well I have had a very lazy weekend so nothing to update from me, total for the week only 34.5k. I needed a good recovery week after the 12 hour last weekend but now its time to get my arse back into gear as I still have 135k to go to get my 5 points. Still very achievable as I have a big week planned :)

Looks like there are a few people gonna be claiming their point for Feb very soon :)

A nice hill session for recovery tonight. Was able to keep up with some of the faster guys tonight which is nice for a change. I think using a shorter hill helped this (each repeat was a hard 50s up vs the normal 2min hill).

PeterPlodder 300k (total 1000k!)

Was planning to finish this weekend, but decided I was close enough to close it out now. So morning and lunchtime runs for the last 2 days takes me to 300k for February and 1000k overall. Now to relax a bit. Although the Black Mountain and Telstra Tower runup is on this Friday...

And Johnnyboyrun, just pipped you. By the slimmest of margins.

PeterPlodder 300k (total 1000k!)

Was planning to finish this weekend, but decided I was close enough to close it out now. So morning and lunchtime runs for the last 2 days takes me to 300k for February and 1000k overall. Now to relax a bit. Although the Black Mountain and Telstra Tower runup is on this Friday...

A couple of very short runs for me. Struggling with tight adductor which has flared up my OP but had a massage earlier so hopefully all good for the rest of the month. Should still make the target unless it gets worse!

Quads still a bit sore from SMC so 3 short slow little ones. hoping the legs will be better tomorrow for a good interval session.
Just worked out, If I get every run in that is planned then I will fall 3k short of the 1000k the day before 6ft!  O well. I dont plan to add 3k but we will see what happens.

February will be a quiet month for me. I didn't get 300 in Feb last year, and I wont get close this year either. That said, did some quality hill reps yesterday and backed up with 14k at sparrow's fart today.

Suffering with my OP again this week so unfortunately there is unlikely to be any running for me now until the big day while I let it settle down. Still able to cross train and walk so I will continue to count my kms just to see how close I get to the 300k for this month. Managed 20k long walk this morning and may go out for some hills reps later if it feels ok. Another long walk planned for tomorrow so will see how far I get...

Johnnyboyrun have taken you off for the month now you hit your 300k but not sure how many points you have now?

Final Striders Six Foot Training group run this morning. 28km starting in Pittwater & heading up into the hills on the trails and back down to the start again. Felt good as a final long run. Also added in some incidental km's from this week. Happy to break the 160km mark. Looking forward to six foot as all I could think about while running this morning was "In two weeks I will be at <xyz> location on the trail".

After a very lazy week I ran the RW event yesterday as well, which was excellent.  But it still doesn't get me close to 300 for this month!!!

Have been away with the family on holidays - managed to get a few runs in, but spent way too much time perfecting my carbo loading strategy.

Koala - hope Tokyo went well for you.

Just updating some of my runs over that last few days... feels weird to be tapering but I need it.. Now just have to work on the tapering of food intake as well :)  The Six foot dreams started last night with a very strange one.... didn't think the race was actually on and then suddening I was down at Cox's river checking it out and runners were coming through.  Apparently I missed the start!

Managed to do some running in amongst the walking today, still going to be around 30-40k short of the 300k this month though. Good news is that I only have 56k to go to get to 1000k and get my bonus points, so should finish up with 4 points all being well which is one more than last year :)

Just adding in my kms from a few training runs and from the Tokyo marathon, which was pretty awesome! Such a great experience running a big city marathon, the crowd support was amazing from start to finish! Would seriously recommend it, but it was very cold on race day.   So well organized too.  But that's it for me for Feb - didn't make the total, which I knew right back in Dec, but all good.

Enjoy your tapers for six foot!  Not long now.

5km at track was the last running I did for February. Only made 165km but it has been a good quality set of km's. Many Many more km's done on the bike to keep the heart going.
