The first two photos taken in Taiwan on the way home and the others are of family and me in Australia.
Hello all! Is anyone still reading this blog? I know, I've not been around here that much myself these days but I'm back and determined to post more regularly and reconnect with you all.
Here's the basic situation with me. I've 8 weeks before I run the Osaka marathon, I'm all but over my bum injury but still having Achilles problems with both feet.
My plan is to keep on training and do the best I can in the next 8 week block to put myself in a position to at least PB. I'm going to have to bump up my weekly mileage between 120K to 160K a week starting this week and I hope this combined with a healthy diet (put on 7kgs in Australia on holidays) will be enough to help me meet my goal. Probably the shortest build up to a goal marathon I've done but as I'm in a good place mentally and wiser from experience I reckon that 8 weeks will see me peaking! I think I'm the type of runner who burns out, peaks too soon, with a traditional 18 to 16 week build up.
While I really had a good time, love Australia, I'm frankly glad to be back and more convinced than ever that it was the right decision to make my home in Asia! I'll leave you with some photos of my summer trip and head over to see what you've been up to.
