Finally back training!

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 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.
