On the road again ....

Here it comes ... the Brisbane Marathon ..... it seems like I blinked and
marathon number 2 for the year pops up. Here's the details of the build up:

April 9 Canberra Marathon
April 14 Hot Cross Crouton Classic 3.7k
April 15 First run back 10k / 4:43 min per km pace
April 17 Short Sharp 8k / 4:18 pace
April 19 Another 10.5k / 4:27 Tempo
April 22 Saturday gallop with Matt for 16k / 4:37 pace
April 24 Physio (minor treatment)
April 25 Ran with HR monitor for 9k / 4:36 and was meant to pace Katy home for the last 2k ... Avg HR 159 (88%)
April 27 Early morning hit out 8k / 4:20

and then ....

April 30 Brisbane Marathon

I have slight adjustments in pacing strategy in mind. Pretty much aiming to go out the same Float and Grind as last time, but would like to push it up with a few surges during the Grunt. The Grunt may see me bomb out. I just have to see (Rob understands)!

Wish me luck!

Holy Crouton Karate Chop!

P.S. Toasthater is posting again!

Good luck with the surges in the grind. Glad it is you and not me backing up so soon after Canberra.

How accurate is your Max HR? It seems lower than mine and you are just a youngster.

PS looked at the Toasthater blog and I must say it explains a lot about you.

Good Luck! Hope it goes well! Guys at the coffee shop were saying that they usually come back and PR at Cleveland after Boston so maybe a PR for you at Brisbane!

You know some people might think you are crazy for running two marathons so close together, but if they visit your blog and see your pictures they probably already know you are crazy. Good luck in Brisbane.

good luck with your triathlon dude.

though, i think you'd do much better, if there was some bikin' and swim volume in there.

how the hell are you gonna do well in a triathlon if you don't train for the bike and run!

well, good luck anyway.
