Some good news this week – Francois, my running buddy for The Comrades, has qualified for the race by finishing the Loskop Ultra Marathon with 10 seconds to spare. After 5hrs 59min and 50sec he and his guide Kero crossed the finishing line after a hard 50km race. This was Francois’s first ultra marathon and a great introduction to what’s to come end of May.
My week was busy as usual – two days preparing Ben for the Sydney 1/2 marathon doing our rounds in Centennial Park and on Saturday doing a big run with Trent and Doug moving for almost 5 hours. All in all another 100+ km week done, two more to go….
Today I jogged the route of the Sydney 1/2 marathon with Ben to give him an opportunity to memories all the corners, hills and other features of the run. We will do one more recon run next weekend to give Ben a perfect preparation for the race mid-May.
