Week 10 - 6 sessions left

Taper Definition: Less overall KM's to rest and recover but faster to practice and get used to race pace.

Note: Nothing to do with Tape Worms (and I was thinking that someone's training for her first marathon was on track and her coach had done a sensational job until this came out over breakfast .................... the conversation, that is)

[insert your own photo for this post .... even I dare not]

Total Ks: 61.52 versus plan of 72
Yassos 10 x 800 at 16.5 Kph or 2:55 minutes each
Medium Pace Runs 13K, 18K, 20K around 4:40 ish

Average pace over the week 4:35 min/K

What were you doing on this day 12 years ago? I know the answer to this one!

12 years ago my daughter was born and I was overcome by a sensation that I have never experienced before. It wouldn't have mattered if she had 7 arms, one leg, was pink with purple polka dots and had horns growing out the top of her head, she was simply the best thing in the world. Thankfully she had none of these afflictions and came out perfectly.

Happy Birthday to Wee Toast, though at 12 years of age she is more likely to be referred to as Gourmet Toast or the like.

Great run this morning. Yeah about those tape worms....sorry to bring it up right about when the bought out that lovely sugary milk concoction you had today. Call that a milkshake????? Poor Tess had a heartattack and thought you'd have to run a marathon just to use up the calories :)

Can't believe that's it. Next week I only have 10k to get through :) barely worth getting out of bed for.
Will be good to see you and Katie in Canberra and for sure I will be looking forward to celebrating afterwards...might even order one of your milkshake specials :)

Did you have to mention the tape worms again - gross! Glad I was just drinking coffee and not eating spagetti.
