This tag is associated with 17 posts

Dusty, dirty, weary and loving it.

Comrades training has now commenced in earnest.  Lots of long hill runs every weekend.  Have a look at the profile for the course! Yes that is 42km going uphill..all the way! The next big thing is that the KEP ultra (50km, 75km and 100km) ballot entry has been awarded, run in our area on the … Continue reading

6 Inch 48km Trail Marathon Recap.

The 6 Inch 48km Trail Run. My taper week was spent on a family holiday in a beautiful resort allowing me to have daily massages – bliss.  I did some taper running in the hotel gym on a TREADMILL.  What an experience.  I ran on the tready barefoot, which after about 5km becomes a bit … Continue reading

Bad shoe choices, Trails, New Years Eve Run

Wow!  I have been off line for a bit.  Apologies.   I had network connection problems for 2 weeks, then went overseas on a family holiday, ran an ultra, bad flu, Christmas and chaos, and time has just flown! There is to much water under the bridge to catch up, so I will have a … Continue reading

Trials and tribulation on the trail

And so another week of running was brought to close.  No photos today, but a good read!! This week past was rather over the top for me..two huge assignments had to be re done due to corrupted files and memory stick – and they were my final ones too.   Two huge new contracts at … Continue reading

Another effect of barefoot running..

Whilst in my search for a new pair of trail shoes..I am very specific.. I am failing to find the same pair that I have. Tomorrow I will be trialling a pair of Inov8’s…let see. However as one does when surfing the web, I got distracted and saw a post on “should you run in … Continue reading

Respect, Bruised barefeet, trail collie fun..

Another week, another long run, another trail done! Am so lucky to be part of a very enthusiastic inclusive un-official “training group” for our 6 inch trail ultra marathon. Our group has a pretty diverse range of abilities and endurance/speed capacities.  But in true trail spirit, this does not matter.  Running as a group encourages … Continue reading

Another mileage weekend done and dusted..literally…

What an awesome weekend. After last weekend and that epic beach run of mine, I thought I was not designed for this long distance running… My reason for that beach run was four fold…distance milage, time out on feet, strength training, and beating the sand…I thought it had got the better of me. Monday was … Continue reading

Moonshadow 12km night time trail race

As I had a planned race on Saturday night, I took a slightly easier week in the training.  Saturday morning was a volunteer stint at the local Park Run.  Actually is quite a good feeling doing that! Then Saturday night had us partaking in the Moonshadow night time trail race of about 12km, with a … Continue reading

Exhausted. Challenged..Zombie state…

Wow. I am running a day late from my normal posting date. But I think I can be excused. Now, I am still doing training for the 6 Inch Ultra.   So need to get strength training up, distance and endurance, and sand skills in.   So muggins here set herself up for a little … Continue reading

Barefoot and on the Athletics Track – Condescension and tact..

Good afternoon.  A post a little out of whack, just like me! So, given my increased speed gain with interval training that I went through on a 6 week course,  I decided to continue with this. I meandered down to our local athletics track where this training is carried out on a weekly basis. Hmmph. … Continue reading
