Good guys there at TRCAlso... Got 2 new pairs of shoes this week haha
The tempo next%s in aqua.. Funnily enough I just looked quickly at them and chucked them away when I got them, not at all actually realising just how bright they are.. Really keen to start breaking them in soon.
Also got a pair of the new Boston 10s from TRC Ballarat online, massive change from the 9s, really chunky sole but just putting them on they have that instant comfort I felt so will see how i go with those as well, wondering if I roll out my 18k on Saturday in them or ease them in as well
I agree...Ordered a Salomon Adv Skin 5 Set and 1.5l bladder to go with it this morning for longer 90+ minute runs. Whoever said running isn't cheap was bang on, as there's an ever growing list of essentials that are needed.
Anyway... I am now proudly entered in the 2022 Melbourne Marathon...ugggh literally the moment I posted I think it was almost 100% locked in that I can't make the mara.... shattered at the moment, but just a tale of the sh*t show of the last 18 months I guess
How is it in terms of being a trail run... With me being a non trail runner for my weekly running?Not much going on here.... final HM for the year now off and the goal of just focussing on some faster parkrun stuff also got kicked in the ass when parkrun recently got reclassified, meaning we are now off until further notice (I'm ED for my local parkrun).
Basically just jogging along now. Will post between 50-70km weeks and probably maintain 1 workout midweek. Sunday longs will be purely a matter of whether I can be stuffed on the day.
Afterglow is fun by the way. Did it either 2016 or 2017. Really good vibe. Was an absolute stinking day I did it though. Hot, thunderstorms during arvo and killer humidity by time run was on.
Certainly not technical at all. No rock hopping or anything like that.How is it in terms of being a trail run... With me being a non trail runner for my weekly running?
Assuming I need to park the ego a bit and not try smash out a PB..
I ordered a fluro yellow Nike singlet last night and have a pair of new fluro brooks Ghost 14s ready hahahaha, i will get into the spirit, actually figured as well that for once i will not wear headphones, especially as it is getting dark and considering i don't know the course...I've done Afterglow a few times and its a heap of fun if you get into the spirit of the event. As far as the course, its only the first maybe 5kms that are "traily". A few ups and downs, but fairly mild. Once you get to Bells Beach, its gravel path majority of the way to Torquay, with about a km of beach/sand running past the finish line before coming back along a concrete path.
I did my hammie last year and it really showed how my body reacts to things getting older.Did my hamstring a couple of weeks ago, and still two weeks away from being able to run again. Couple that with new medication and I've made the decision to forego the 2021 marathon, with a view to getting stuck into the 2022 one instead.
With that said I'm looking forward to getting back into running 30km a week to maintain a base level of fitness, and also getting into the gym to compliment it.
