December (Read 406 times)

    Gonna try for 5 miles this weekend and then I'll start adding in some terrain (I've been doing all my runs on a pancake flat 1/3 mile walking path).  Just going to keep taking it easy and let the distance come.

     

    Everyone have a great New Year and a great new year in 2012.

     That means you will reach your 1100 goal by the 31st? Yaay!

    I love your philosophy "keep taking it easy and let the distance come"

     

    That's what I'm doing these days. I feel like I'm slacking in terms of what I wish I were running, but I'm doing all I can do and not pushing things - that appears to be plenty hard enough. At this point I'm happy ending the year with 30-mile weeks which was my own goal.

    Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

      Come on Heffa and Emurphy, knock the bugger off.

       

      13 hours to go in NZ, currently looking very wet for New Years. Great......... Sad

        I was planning a long run tomorrow to finish off the year but I got off work early today so I went ahead and knocked out some today.  Just a little 9 miler tomorrow and the bunny bites the dust!

            go! go! go! Your legs'll be tired on New Years Day, but it will be so worth it! I'll think of you when I'm running tomorrow.

          Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

            I finally got a chance to look at your photos from the Tarawera Ultra course, Puke. You live in one of the most beautiful places on earth! Thanks for posting the link to your album. I could look at that scenery forever.

              What? Where is the link? Gotta get psyched for Tarawera.

              I had a great run today, got with a bunch of great GUTS folks I'd never met before and had a really long run on what local trailrunners call the "Meat Grinder", for good reason, it's a tough trail that connects Amicalola State Park to Springer Mountain--this is the trail that hikers take to start the through-hike of the Appalachian Trail which starts at Springer Mountain. 

              Anyway, 18.6 miles, 7300 ft elevation change. That's it for 2011! 

              Happy New Year everyone!

                We had a wet week in New Zealand last week (middle of summer - sure it is) so it gave me several excuses not to go for a run.  But finally got my arse into gear and did 10km (in heavy rain) to push me past the 2000 mark.  The rain continued through the weekend so celebrated by doing a 20km out and back on a section on next years Tarawera Ultra.  Very scenic part of the course.  Took me 2:45 but stopped to take photos on the way.  Really weird thing for me is that during the entire run I saw nobody. Nearly 3 hours without human contact.  Heavy rain and mud might have had something to do with it.  Anyway, here are some photos - enjoy

                   Wow!  That's an impressive Last Run of the year.

                       Thanks Happy.....the photos didn't really do justice. They tell me it isn't even the most scenic part of the ultra course. Put visiting NZ on your bucket list and get out here one day.  I've got the Chicago Marathon on mine....buggered if I can understand that.

                            I did my yoga workout so far, but am still in my pjs, trying to make up my mind how far to run and which route.

                            Seems like I should run 14 since it's the last day of the year. That's the second longest run of this past year and I'm not up to doing 16 which was my longest. On the other hand, I could run my challenging 12 mile Big Hills Route to start off the new year in the direction of my goal to get comfortable with that run.

                            Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

                              Happy New Years folks, I'm hoping you let me back in the club tomorrow... A

                              The Great Chase begins anew and we need everybody back at it. We can't do it all by ourselves, now can we?
