I ran up Nob Hill this morning. As you might imagine it was long and hard. When I compared it to other hills though, it probably wasn't as long as I initially thought. Then I ran to the middle of the Golden Gate bridge. On the way back they have a speed display measured by radar - managed to trigger it at 11mph with strides toward it.
Nice work GM - keep it up
And a very nice marathon there Poacher
I hit a 1000 miles since New Year at the weekend and now the taper is in full swing. My legs are all stiff so regular streching, foam roller and massage is going on. Flying to SA on Saturday with my daughter on my lap - I'm not sure how its going to work on the way back
Its great to see the excitement building. Remember all those miles over winter are banked and ready to be cashed in next Sunday.
I went through a 1000 miles since New Year on Sunday and the taper is in full swing now. My legs are very tight so lots of streching, foam rollering and massage is going on. I would like to be doing a lot of sleeping but travelling is making it tricky.
Its good to see the targets being set. I set mine at 8:30 but lets see when I'm on the other side of Inchanga. I'll be very happy with any medal so long as it has silver edges and a bronze centre
