Into the Darkness…..Star Trek!!
I love Spock, I always have…
Not really a trekkie but like Spock…
Like the new Spock too but Leonard Nimoy is my fav!!
Don’t like William Shatner as Kirk though…Arrogant pig….
But liked him in Boston Legal.
Love Simon Pegg too as Scotty….
And our very own Karl Urban as Bones!!
OK, it is time to start the marathon plan….
I have decided on a training plan from Hal Higdon.
I still have not got the go ahead from Dr or physio but I will go ahead and see how we go…
I still haven’t entered the actual race either but that can be done right up to the last day….
Actually I STILL haven’t done a lot 🙂
People sell their entries on trade me for ages leading up to the event.
SO HERE IT IS!!!
I just need to convert it to km 🙂 and I need to learn to vary my running pace more…
AND RUN FARTLEK!!
18 weeks I have ….GULP!!!
Check out Hal’s site as he has many many awesome programs for all abilities and walking programs too!!
Ooooh, a little excited now!!!
When I go to falter, kick me up the arse!!

The other thing I have been pondering this week was Crossfit.
I have pondered this for some time especially as my strength training is at a bit of a stand still…
And I am bloody bored by it.
I read in Runners world, I need to commit to the running ( as I do anyhow) now
BUT not tire myself with other exercise apart from one day a week, maybe 2 to do cross training…
What do you reckon?
Yoga I will keep doing as I think that will be as good as a massage…
All you runners out there?
Shazza? Marathoner extraordinaire!!
Well I shall leave you in peace…resting today no exercise…
Mentally preparing myself:)
Vanilla Fudge is cooling, Rosewater Challah bread is resting….
Pistachio fudge is cooling, bread books awaiting, Pizza is cooked and eaten!!
Fire is on and couch is calling….
I may answer tonight!! Normally I ignore it as I am not a coucher…
Almost finished the latest book:)
Today though I may just be a lounger:)
RUN TONTO RUN!
