Five Weeks to Marathon

Yesterday morning, before leaving for Sydney, I squeezed in a short run to make up my total for the week. It was slow but not as bad as I expected after yesterday's hills.

Total distance: 9km
Average pace per km: 6:12
Calories burned: 543

Total distance for week: 95km

A New Week
Last night we attended the Coldplay concert in Sydney and it was absolutely awesome. We stayed with our daughters in their apartment thus killing two birds with one stone - catch up with the kids and a fantastic concert. We drove back this afternoon after a lovely lunch with the girls and youngest daughter's partner. We arrived back in Canberra cutting the time a little fine for making it to training. Instead I ran a gentle run from home desperately seeking bushes on the way back after consuming too much junk food on our one day and night away!

Total distance: 12km
Time taken: 1:13:53
Average pace per km: 6:09
Calories burned: 710


  1. Welcome back Strewth, you are very good to have run while having a short holiday and every excuse not to!

  2. Coldplay would have been excellent! I look forward to seeing the results of your new training programme with master trainer CJ!

  3. Did Chris Martin run out into the audience and give you a hug?

    It's not five weeks! It's 32 days, 13 hours, 29 minutes and 10 seconds!
