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!
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…
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!
