Tough cycle this morning! I posted my most ever elevation in one ride: 1,133m. Oh the hills…I so need practice on hill climbs. The ITB? Yeah they were pretty sore.

This time next week I’ll be completing the 100km Spring Cycle! That’s a little flatter.

I’ve upgraded to a swanky new and much firmer foam roller. My old blue one just wasn’t cutting it.

It’s by no means to most brutal foam roller you’ll ever see, but it’s a start.

Oh how I LOVE my foam roller!

So want one of these…

With over 700km on the clock for my current running shoes (Saucony Triumph 10), it’s time for a new pair.

I haven’t given the Brooks Glycerin 12 (my new runners below) a go before but I’ve heard good things. Will keep you posted.

I’m looking into getting a pair of Hoka One’s too…

I was playing around with the premium stats in Fitbit and “Daily Very Active Minutes” is one of my more favourable rankings against my peers.
We’re only talking 1 hour of activity per day. It’s not so much, is it?

With the 100km Spring Cycle event in Sydney only a few weeks away, it was good to get in an 84km social ride today. Such great weather for it too.

Also, I notched up my most ever elevation gain cycling today with a gain of 879m.

I was hoping for 2 hours in the Blackmores Half Marathon so I’ll take this. And…no ITB soreness.

Sep 20

Just 16 hours to go and I start my first half marathon race in 2 years.

I actually ran the same race 2 years ago so it’s good race to [hopefully] start my climb back to marathon fitness.

I’ve been battling ITB soreness for a good 18 months now but the last 3 months haven’t been too bad. I’m now just about able to run 21km before the ITB gets me. Having said that, the last 3 weeks I’ve had some issues with other ITB. UGH.

My training has been good. I’ve done a long 20km+ run every weekend since mid-July, with my weekly mileage ranging from 30-40km. I’ve also been swimming and cycling - cross training for the win.

Anyway, fingers crossed for tomorrow. 

My half marathon PB is 1:43:00. Tomorrow I’m hoping for sub-2 hours which is 5:40min/km pace. I’m happy with my fitness at that pace so I plan to run 0-10km at 5:40ish and then try to pick it up to 5:35 for 10-21km. The theory is good at least!

You can see the course map here.

WISH ME LUCK!

Almost 60km into today’s ride and there’s a sweet sunset over the harbour. (at Sydney Harbour Bridge)

Turn directions on Garmin Forerunner 910XT

I’m so glad I found this.

bewuethr:

My Garmin Forerunner 910XT does pretty much everything. It keeps track of my body fat percentage, tells me when to run fast during workouts, all I want to know about heart rate, strokes per length and vertical speed. It lets me compete against old performances of myself or somebody else…
