Just Running

After the high of the M7 marathon I had an easier week of 60 km. I really felt good after the race and the last two week were fun to run. I had a meeting with Sean Williams from SWEAT – http://www.sweatsydney.com.au/index.php and I am looking forward to joining his training and improve under his guidance.

This last week I slowly picked up on distance and time again and with tomorrows City 2 Surf and some additional rounds in Centennial Park I should reach close to a 100 km for the week. Only 4 weeks to go before the 100km Glasshouse Mountains Trail Race!

Got some great gadgets for that race and the Marathon des Sables – had to spend some heavy cash so. An essential tool for not getting lost: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=349&locale=en_US and a solar charger to recharge GPS and my i-nano. http://www.solio.com/v2/

Race gear such as a new super light but super warm sleeping bag http://www.buncup.com/commerce1/store/product_details.jsp?pid=104&cid=10&red=product_list.jsp?id=10, and some other
little stuff such as the anti-venom pump, bottle holder and head torch….

Once I have most of the gear together I will have a good idea about size and brand of the best backpack I need. A very important part of the gear which can make or break the marathon….and I want to travel light unlike some others at this years MdS……….
