hope your weekend was a gdun!

Not sure how high it is, but I would think it's a few thousand feet at least !!

Yeah, just started back on the weights. Weak as a ferret but hey, strength isn't my goal right now (for once). Just using it to complement my running and I'm sure it won't do any harm in getting those looks off the ladeeeez :popcorn:

Weekend was great thanks, how about yours?

Off up to Auckland for two days for a business conference, so I'm picking I won't have much time to log in and post.

I do plan to go for a run and make use of the hotel gym while I'm up there though! Will fill in the gaps when I get back on Thursday MF.

This week has been a deliberately easy week of not much, I start my training for the Sri Chinmoy half marathon tomorrow with the race being mid-September.

My new watch arrived in the mail this morning so will head out tonight to give it a test run. Looks pretty badass though... and it has more features than I'll know what to do with :?

** Not exactly sure where I lost time in this run, I thought I would have been sub 53mins as my pace was solid the whole way. Last couple of km's I ran at 4.15' /km pace ~ the whole run felt pretty good tonight.

I don't think I have ever ran over 20kph either !!

Had a couple of days rest as I've had a spot of bronchitis so was happy to get out this morning and dodge the rain.

Will write up later this afternoon, but ran 19.5km in 1hr37.
