three months on

Well, I did manage to mix things up a bit during Winter, then got stuck into Spring training and the Unitec Run & Walk Series.

A quick recap, over the last three months I:

  • replaced my Garmin FR70 with a FR220, which is amazing! Especially love the mapping feature. Did have a slight battle with NZ Customs who were trying to incorrectly charge me, but I got it eventually.
  • dropped my 5km time down to 24.20 from 25.26, then six weeks later down to 24.16. I missed a few speed sessions this TempoFit season so was thrilled to smash my previous time. Definitely started to feel the heat at the end of the season. Time for shorts I think.

Waiheke Weekend

  • made it to the start line of the four remaining Unitec Run & Walk Series (even if I dropped down to the one-lap event most times). They had a tough run with the weather this year but the events were well run as per usual. I’m not sure where the fast ladies were this series as I managed a few high placings.
  • trained on the Auckland Half Marathon course and enjoyed some of the North Shore beaches.

Narrowneck Beach

  • attended a Nike Training Club event. Wow, was such a good workout but very, very tough.

  • improved my Sir Barry Curtis Park 16km time by fifteen minutes from last year. Such a confidence boost, I was able to run the 16km strong despite awful weather (half the course in biting wind and rain, the other half in sun and too hot!) and still feel good at the finish.
  • trained hard and am all set for the Auckland Half Marathon next weekend!

  1. Gosh awesome times happening there 🙂

  2. Nice to hear you are improving, and you are improving quickly! Do you have a goal in mind for a 5km time you want to chase??

      I’ve been focusing more towards the 1/2 (finally time to crack 2 hours after 2.03 and 2.02!) but will be aiming to get my 10km time below 50 minutes over summer. Good to be making progress!

  3. Good luck for the Auckland half, sounds like you’ll easily be able to smash 2 hours with that build up!

    Best of luck for tomorrow! It sounds like you are in great shape to achieve your sub-2 and hope you do it!
