    Ran a very easy light paced, relaxed 20km yesterday in 1:39 and had plenty of fuel to burn at the finish

    Planning to enter a 21km xterra offroad half marathon in 2 weeks to work on strength and give a real brutal workout.  I know it took a very fast guy at my kids running club over 1:50 to do it last year so will be well over 2 hours for me but it is all training

    Personal Race Records:

    M 3:52:48 (Auckland 2011), HM 1:38:16 (Taupo 2010), 10km 45:05 (Sir Barry 2010), 5km 20:21 (How Pak 5km 2010)

     

    2012 Goals:
    Run the 75km Hillary Trail in a day (done 10/3/2012)

      That's a bunch of miles vino, nice work!

       

      I ran a brutally warm, stodgiliy paced, not at all relaxed 20km today in 83F temperatures in a time that shall not be mentioned here save to say that it was the wrong side of 2 hours. I had nothing left at the finish. Blush

       

      Still, it took me over 3000 miles since I started running (3.5 years ago) and got my July total to a respectable (given relocation) 88 miles.

       

      Happy-ish

       

      On to August... See y'all on the flipside. Smile
