Push-ups & Long Run

AM, Push ups: (|)5,6,7,8,9(-)5,6,7,8,9,(|)16,(-)20 – total 106

Now, let’s see if I can stay awake tonight and get that elusive long run done… 51 dats to my A-Race.

51 days is effectively seven weeks:

  • Week 7: Long run 20k
  • Week 6: Long run 23k
  • Week 5: Long run 25k
  • Week 4: Long run 25k
  • Week 3: Long run 25k
  • Week 2: Long run 28k
  • Week 1: Long run 20k Race Pace
  • Race week: 30k in under 2:10

Let’s see if I can make a good start tonight.


The run was a disaster – I died a death out there, Speed was non existent and I had to stop and walk a couple of times. Further to that am sitting in a 30 C apartment feeling cold. That is the second time in a row where I have felt flat during a run and cold after. A new one to me.
