A running blog, of sorts
That's exciting Scott. So true about marathoners of old - fewer distractions too. No internet, mobile phones or colour tele. Okay, better stop or I'll convince myself to spend less time online. Not that there'd be anything wrong with that ;-)
The idea of mastering the push up is something that I might have a go off of as well. For all my running ability and strength I can't even do 10 of these. The quiff is superb by the way. Richard (the Beirut taxi)
I could knock out 60 to 70 push ups easy less than a year ago. With more running I just didn't have the energy. After your video I chuckled as I hit the deck and counted one, two .. By the time I got to 15 I was chuckling no more. Core strength I understand but upper body just adds bulk doesn't it?
I guess that too much upper body work wouldn't be optimal Mark but with firm pecs there'd be less jiggling around. Besides it may help me pull the skin of a rice pudding or two! ;) And Hi Richard, I was just thinking of you the other day!
"Mid 60s" !!! 62. That is called "early 60s" :-)
I think you should keep you runs to no more than 21 Km or even less at this stage...two weeks after a marathon ! You are no doubt better suited than me to marathon running but I ran Melbourne Marathon in October and felt great and then ran Seoul Marathon shortly afterwards. I am still suffering.Good luck .
Sorry Jon, but what's a few years between friends? ;) Yes I hear you on not doing too much too soon but Kobe wasn't an all out effort, more like a hard long run, so I feel ready to roll.
I was told I was pushin' 60 in my early 50s Scott, so watch out!
