Are you doing any lifting these days or just focusing on endurance training? Was watching your training videos earlier to get me fired up for my workout, really good stuff:)
Thanks for checking in mate, hope you liked the videos
Pretty much just running at the moment Rob. Occasionally I'll call in to the gym and do some weights just to keep some sort of muscle definition, but not a patch on what I used to train like. That's why I'm not really logging them right now, I tend to like focusing solely on either the lifting or running and right now my goal is to knock off a fast marathon (well fast for my not-very-fast legs anyway). So after a bit of downtime after the off road marathon I think it's about time to get locked in and serious.
Emphasis now is on continuing to get faster as the distance gets longer, with the goal of being able to hold 5min/km pace for the marathon distance. Plan to get out for a decent length run tonight, hopefully around 20km then I'm meeting a mate in the morning at Hagley Park... let's go
Indeed, loved the training vids, particularity the "day of the DL" and Bench Press vids, i also like your styler D-B presses, i used a similar hand position myself, i feel it a lot more in my pecs, plus it puts a lot less stress on the shoulder joints.
Good luck with the marathon mate, no doubt you'll do well:)
