My training progress
last week's target: 66k
achieved: 59k
year total to date: 2,327k in 29 weeks
this week’s target: 66k
weight: 67kg ►◄

I missed two days due to a bad sore throat, and I finished the week very tired. So we will try again this week! The hammie is.. so-so.

Cross Country results? "No race results are available for this event", I guess that's because it was a championship. So I can't yet report how we went, instead, here is some publicity for this coming Saturday:

Rising Star

Another rising star in our training group, Emma loves mountains and is racing the 25k on Saturday. Emma is hard to spot in a race when she wears her "Where's Wally" uniform!


  1. I run with Emma in my Saturday group and she is certainly a rising star. She gets in good consistent training and has a lovely running technique to match.

    I should be there on Saturday but have had far from an ideal few weeks with running. I have struggled to get in consistent training and came down with a virus over the last week - and no running. It as been a very tough few months since Boston.

  2. I saw Wally tonight at PH. What's with the safety pin?

  3. So the mobile phone won't escape, Ewen. Don't ask.
