Well that was some time off hey.
I swear grass has grown on my blog and I can still hear the chirp of crickets....but there just wasn't much to report on and I dont think everyone wanted to read my wailing.
First it was a calf injury that just wouldn't heal and then during all that my shoulder - which turned out to be sticky shoulder. Its coming right but it did effect my walking more than I cared to admit.
So here I am ... now to find my motivation again. Its dark and I have a phobia of the dark...so I struggle to find my "weeee lets do this" plus there is the whole getting home by 7.30pm and still having to cook dinner etc. Small world problems I know but still annoying at best.
I am at peace with my decision to not enter the worlds in Perth. I am not ready for that caliber of competition - so my new goal is Pan Pacific Games in Nov and then World Games 2017 in Auckland.
So at the moment I am managing Tuesday - track, Thursday - Walkway and then a long walk Sundays. I need to be doing Tues, Weds, Thurs, Saturday and Sunday. So its time for me to sit down and write myself a program out.
I have entered the Gold Coast Half Marathon. Thats next weekend......hmmmmm maybe a touch over zealous but it will definitely force me to do the distance. To date the furthest I have walked is 15km and I will be doing that again tomorrow. Not the best of prep but its better than nothing.
So thats it folks..... I am still here, still ticking along and still walking.
- lose 5kg
- train at least 4 days a week
- get my training pace back to 6min kms easy
- better my 10km best for Auckland.
