Has been a good quality week of training. Headed over to a thermal resort with the family for a few days, out for a 16km run later tonight which will bring my total for this week to around the 70km mark. Definitely getting both stronger & faster.

Great article dude, it's really inspiring to see someone who is not only strong but also killing it with the endurance training as well. It leaves me no excuse to neglect the other aspects of training aside from strength.

It was a good week of training, despite not being able to get out for that 16km run. I ate an amazing curry (extremely hot) and knew it wouldn't have been wise! Here's my training for last week...


TUE 14th: 7.1km / 36.50 / ave 11.57kph (fasted morning run)
13.9km / 1:12.00 / ave 11.58kph (evening run)
THU 16th: 5.5km / 27.10 / ave 12.26kph (fasted morning run)
5.5km / 25.25 / ave 13.10kph (night run)
SAT 18th: 20.5km / 1:49.00 / ave 11.28kph (recovery)

TOTAL: 52.6km

Thanks man, it was beautiful! I got two lunches and a dinner from it.

I'd like to start experimenting more with raw foods, something I want to explore more this year.

Just under 6 weeks until the Motatapu off-road marathon, looking forward to it. I raced it a few years back and it's a stunning (but a quite brutally hilly) course, definitely the most scenic marathon I have ever ran. It's all private land that is opened up to the public once a year just for this race :)

I'll be running it with an old fiend, no time goals or anything like that. Just get a good run in the legs and a weekend away at the same time, I think the first time I finished in just over 5hrs so it is far from a fast course.

Ran into a spot of bother today...

Went out for a run in our searing 30 degree heat, went the wrong way and ended up quite a way out from home with no water or food. Made my way back eventually and a very nice cafe I stumbled into gave me some water to see me right as I had gotten very dehydrated. I swear, when you are dehydrated iced cold water feels like the equivalent of taking EPO! I went from running 6min/km and wondering how I was going to make it home to finishing the final kilometre at sub 4.30min/km pace :roll: Was a good 20km run though, lost nearly 5lb in bodyweight. Not good lol.

Wooow, such a gorgeous view. I'm jelly =P. I wish powerlifting meets were held in that kind of setting, haha. Glad to hear you're alright man. I got lost on a hike the other week, but fortunately I was carrying plenty of food and water.

Good for you ~ let's just say I won't be making the same mistake again.

A couple of really good runs last week fueled by some amazing fresh food. Lucky to be getting lots of blueberries from our plants we have in our garden. Delicious!..
