Kinda surprised myself today... I had a 6k run scheduled so when hubby finally got up (i let him sleep in again... gosh I am nice!) he ushered me out the door to go for the run. Secretly he just wanted to use the computer without me nagging! ROFLOL!!! I ran really well today and I even got a comment from a guy who was walking that I passed twice. He called out "you're doing good" so I called out "yeah but its taken me weeks to get here though".

So, back to running.... I decided to go around in 6min/km. I was surprised to I went through the first 3km in 17.29mins and I thought yeah a little fast but I feel good. So I turned around and went the other way around the block and did the second 3km in 17.11mins. This is my fastest 3km around the usual block! I was really happy with that and the thing is I could have kept running even longer at that pace!

I am so happy with my progress and I am so relieved that I have not had any injury niggles either! *Touching wood frantically!*

Did my long run, well 8km run on sunday, and went through in 49minutes, so in around 6.10mins/km which I know is a little fast for this run, but I felt like I was running really really slow as it was!

Thanks for stopping by and happy trails!!! :)


  1. Thanks for your comments. I'm not sure that I would rely on the public system for everything, but I think we are lucky in Australia that we will be covered for major problems. I even saw a speech given by a doctor where he surveyed other doctors and most of them said that they would prefer going to a public hospital for major health problems/surgery, yet they all had private health policies. Do you have a health savings fund? I'm just trying to get a feel for what other people do.

  2. It's great when you can see some progress with your running isn't it. Makes all the hard work seem worth it! Hope you don't get any niggles...touching wood and crossing fingers!

  3. You go Girl !!!
