About

Just another city runner – balancing work, life and running.

I’ve been running on and off for a number of years, consistently since late 2012. Not fast by any means, but stubborn enough to keep trying. Ran Copenhagen Marathon in 2010 and unlikely to run another anytime soon, the half marathon is my challenge!

Often training with TempoFit, ย learning to enjoy solo long runs and usually putting on a bib in Auckland races.ย Still in the battle to beat the two hour market for a half marathon, 2014 2015 2016 is the year!

    What shoes do you run in?

  2. haha I love your attempts at “training”. I feel like that is how my approach to races has been – good intentions, then life gets in the way!

  3. Hi, just found your blog and think it’s great. I am also training for the Auckland marathon. Good luck with the last 5 weeks of your training! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Don’t you hate that IT band, you think evolution could have put some rubber in there or something. I can imagine many hours on the roller for a problem with it.

  5. Of the four of us in my flat, three of us have IT band issues… Surely evolution needs to sort this ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ha, I love your about me section. Sugar habits are tough, but they are quite delicious, aren’t they? ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for following my blog. I look forward to seeing your training.

  7. See you at the start line for the marathon! I’ll be in the 4 – 4:30 group ๐Ÿ™‚ If you need any stuff, give me a holler. I can get you discounts ‘just because’ at Shoe Science ๐Ÿ™‚

    The IT band is super common with female athletes in particular. Try strengthening your vastus medialis (inner thigh muscle) which is often weak and putting more strain on those outer quads and ITB. Also, i’m finding bike is a really good way to supplement running training. Hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚
