22, Australian, studying physiotherapy, training for a half marathon - message me to help raise money for Australia's largest specialist cancer hospital!
Dancing with excitement at running such a good time over 3km tonight!!! I did the same time trial one month ago and my time was 16:36, so definitely a big improvement today. Tonight was cold and wet and dark but training was great regardless.
Smashing PBs today: longest run, farthest run, fastest 10km (1:03). I ran the Capital City Trail with my friend Jo, and we refueled with poached eggs and smashed avo on wholegrain toast, and peppermint tea.
I missed my weekly long (9km) run today. Woe. I want to make it up next week but I fear that if I repeat last week and train another five days in a row then I’ll feel like an incapacitated old woman for three days again. I think I’ll swap my Wednesday interval run for a long run, and do 20 minutes of hill repeats on Friday instead.
After working out pretty hard for five days in a row, I’ve never been more excited to have two rest days coming up! I feel like an old woman at the moment. A massage is definitely going to happen next week.
This was the kind of run that you hate from the start and you can’t wait to be finished. 12 min run, 16 min intervals (fast run 1’ and slow jog 1’ x8), 12 min run. According to my HRM I worked really hard, and now I’m feeling it!
turned a little negative when I discovered that I’d stepped in dog poo while at training. My poor new Nikes! Effing gross! I train at a recreation reserve across from my apartment, and people think it’s a dog park (it’s not, it’s just leash-free) and they don’t pick up after their dogs. Wankers!
I’ve never done a before-and-after post, but I just found these old photos. I can see some differences now! Before: zero exercise, average eating. After: exercise 4x a week, training for a half marathon, clean and healthy eating 80% of the time.
