Blowing out the cobwebs

Well I might not be a cowboy, but I did dust off the racing boots and had a go for my first event this year.

The Warwick Pentath is 5 runs in 2 days. The half mary I managed 1:36 and some change which is better than the 1:38 2 years ago but not so good as the 1:32 last year. The big positive was the strong second half, that came after having no speed early on. Lots of slow long runs has done wonders for endurance which also kicked in the second day doing the 10K ascent.

I will have to work on speed now.

The shorter cross country, 5k road race and 1500m were all done in pain. Mainly to do with breathing, so will get some expert advice shortly (Katy's mum is coming and just happens to be her profession).

Glad to see you are back out racing! Hope you get the breathing figured out though!

What? Are you saying KT's mum is a professional at breathing hot air?

I reckon you could substitute Queenslanders for Cowboys.

The sparkly one hasn't blogged for a while - is she still playing the waiting game?

good to hear that your running, and katy's legionaire's (i'm guessing) are trending in the right direction...

i always knew that about you. ability to go long distances, funny clothes, lives somewhere warm -- who else would she have got it from?

Have you tried this method ....
breathe in
breathe out
breathe in
breathe out
breathe in
breathe out
Repeat ad infinitum (unless ad nauseum gets you first).
