keeping it simple

Kym running the Half Marathon

Last night's training at Dickson - Kym & I ran early, then Cathy, Colin, Craig, Mick, Neil, Susan, & Suzie ran a set of 12 x 200m. I was checking form & everyone looked pretty good. Interesting that three of the attendees ran their half marathon pbs only last Sunday. Just goes to show the advantage of regular and consistent attendance at training.

Next Tuesday at Dickson there will be a change to the routine, next week only. We will meet at 6pm and join the Bilbys training session. I won't run early at 4:00pm, but I will get there at 5:30pm in case some of us arrive at the normal time.

Keeping it simple means keeping the main things the main things. Work on core strength to retain good form over the years; keep running consistently, show up at training whatever the weather; set a racing goal so as to have a focus. It's not difficult. But it takes commitment and perseverance.

Some things are not the main thing.

    1. Nick's Runners Shop stand at the Rex Foulkes Half Marathon had shoes which were definitely spring loaded. They looked a bit heavy but.

  2. The oxygen tank would be handy after 800s.
