Running with the big dogs

The weekend run ended up on Sunday after a minor schedule adjustment on account of getting home at 3:30 am and setting the alarm for 4:30 am Friday night - Saturday morning. Today I planned on 25k solo from 5:00 am but when I arrived Pete was also getting out of his car and encouraged me to run with him. We waited for Stephan and the 3 of us took off for 15 min before joining the rest of group. I might add, both of these guys went 2:51 last year and are lining up for something quicker this year. To my relief, the run was quite comfortable, cruising for a little over 1 and half hours with the group for a total of around 21k. Post run wt 67.4kg.

I had two solid speed sessions and a short Wednesday run with Clairie. It was all good.

Crouton Andrew heads back to Melbourne today and I have really enjoyed him being here for the month. We managed to get a few things done like the cooking school, 3 times finishing, 3 trips to the surf beaches, some home cooking, a night out for his birthday, 2 football games, a kick in the park and camping.

Next week I am aiming for 2 speed sessions, coffee run Wednesday, easy Saturday (before helping Paul demolish his bathroom) and another run with Pete's crew on the Sunday. GC Marathon training will start 1st March.

At 67.4 kegs, you are a little dog now. I'm thinking sub-3 at GC for sure.

There's nothing like kicking the Sherrin down at the park. Good fun.

He needs another trip to the States ASAP. Cheese, super-sizing and the Chef's desserts will fix him.
