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

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

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

Sprints and trails, snakes and tales!

This weekend was my planned PB attempt for a sub 21min 5k done at our local Park Run.  After two weeks of phsycing myself up, reducing my weekly training for a bit of a taper to being in optimum form, managing a couple of sub 21mins in training for my 5km dash, I felt I … Continue reading

Technical Trail weekend done and dusted

Good morning. What a fantastic weekend I have had with a great group of people on the trails. Doing nearly 40km over the weekend in spectacular locations and awesome trails, covering single track, open, extremely hilly, slopy, rock, root tangled, wildlife, sand, sand and more sand dunes!  Oh my word, those sand dunes killed me… … Continue reading

Interval training along with Ultra training?

Well good morning. A little late this week with my chat, but been rather busy. So essentially I have finished with my road running for the year – yeehah!  But am now in my last week of a speed training course with lots of interval training with the aim of improving my speed. To date … Continue reading

Real barefoot Technology update..

So the sites show a lot of activity out there this weekend specifically for the half and full marathons that were on, wrapping up before it gets too hot here.  Been a lot of posts of every ones bling, their track shoes aka running shoes aka takkies.  Most people appear to be posting their times … Continue reading
