12 weeks now until my marathon and I've now started my training in earnest. Bought a new running watch to mark the occasion yesterday and I can tell you that I'm in the best shape I've ever been this far out from a marathon so if I can hold it together for these 12 weeks then I'm gonna run fast in Townsville ;) Details to follow.


  1. 12 weeks without over-training, without an injury, without a man-'flu?

    You're a better man than me if you can make it.

  2. In a recent interview with, Chris talked about “zoning out” in the race and how running relaxed and not worrying about time helped him break the record. Did you work with him on this mental outlook during training?

  3. Ooooh, new gadgets, I love new gadgets!

    My watch needs a new battery, does that mean I can buy a new HRM?

  4. Richard, Scott doesn't get man-'flu. He's the toughest runner ever to don girlie arm-warmers.

    Hey Scott, did you nick that title from Gough?
