    best of luck.
    Cheers, was a 60k, and it was last Saturday. But I wasn't present for it.

    Injured my calf two weeks before and three rub downs and dry needling sessions did nothing to alleviate the pain.

    Lots of events over the next few weeks to focus on though, so all is not lost.

    Been making puddles in the gym for the past three weeks using the watt bike and the concept two rower.

    Just saw some pretty round numbers after this morning's wee stroll.



    So with exactly 10 weekdays left in the month, might as well focus on an average of 5km per weekday, and hit 100km in less than 20 hrs, for the month.

    Easy peasy titty squeezy.


    Sure, the only thing slower is a Sybil comeback, but hey, I'm a beginner.

    I beg to differ...



    That's fucking slow and a pretty tardy 2km.

    Mothers pushing their tots in strollers pass me and laugh.

    Plus I've also just cut back from 5 days per week to 3.

    Since my sojourn to NZ, my goal to lose 5 kg's is going well.
    Only have 15 kg's to go.

    Can't find an app that will track through trees as I do a lot of jungle hiking.
    So, for now, it's timed only.
    2 1/2 hours today. Rawai to Laem Prom Thep (down to the point) then to windmill hill and back to Rawai
    3 1/2 yesterday (Phunaka to Patong and back)
    3 hours 2 days ago (Big Buddha) (via Kata - trail from Makro)
    Nai Harn to Black rock then down to Nui Beach the day before (stayed down there for a while so won't post the time)
    Try to go somewhere new most days as I get bored easily.
    Anyway, if someone knows of an app that will follow me under tree cover, I'd love to know my climbing and downhill speeds. I've tried quite a few of them.
    Heading to Vietnam next week to try to climb Fanispan (in the rain???)

    Maybe you need a pedometer that you can then upload?

    Don't know about apps, though many sports watches can measure that and the apple 3 watch has a barometric sensor for altitude tracking.

    I have a garmin etrex 20 GPS, but the zoom buttons broke (too much use LOL)
    It will still do the altitude page but pretty much useless on the mapping anymore.
    I guess I should buy another one, but it's really not super important to know how much altitude I'm doing is it?
    Just being out there working it for a few hours most weekdays is good.
    Google Tracks used to be perfect. Then they discontinued it.
    Oh well.

    Or try Strava? I spend a lot of time under canopy cover (sometimes running, sometimes wanking in the bushes) and it always works pretty well.

    Pretty consistent block of training here - save for a couple of weeks back when my youngest lovingly passed on a very fucking violent strain of the shits to me. Running in green, cycling in pink.

    Ah! You're one of fluoro nutjobs.

    Why do you act like a real man and run in the dark, wearing black, and headphones, on country roads?
    Pretend like you're a Ninja and make every run more exciting by sensing when cars are about to run you over.

    Been paying a bit more attention to these record achievement things, and been looking at beating the previous one each day.







    So far so good for the 5km one.

    Averaging 7.5km each weekday at the moment.

    Hoping to push that up to 10km a couple of times a week by the end of July.

    Pretty good pace for 7.5km
