Slack blogger!

I've been back from sea for over 10 days and I still haven't posted. I am slack. And busy.

I've been really trying to get stuck into the running since I got back. I want to go in a couple of events soon. I'm not sure which ones yet, but I think I'll start with the Greenbelt half. I put on a bit of weight out on the boat due to the inactivity and ready supply of energy-dense foods so I have a couple of kg to lose if I want to be competitive. 78 when I got back (probably holding a bit of fluid), 76.5 now and I want to get down to 73-74. I got in 63 km last week and I'm aiming for that again this week, with some added cycling to and from work some days.

If you are interested in such things, I am part of Phil's campaign to raise awareness of China's human rights abuses in Tibet. I'm donating all my mileage (running and cycling) to the million km for tibet project. If you are interested, feel free to join the Yahoo group here. You could also check out the Race for Tibet website.

It's my BD on the weekend, so we're going down to Normanville to stay at the in-laws and have a nice dinner etc. It also means that I'll be able to do my long run in one of my favourite areas to run.

Anyway, have a safe and happy Easter.


PS. I never got a photo of my new 'do, and then out at sea I got bored and shaved it all off. Here is a rather fuzzy and stupid photo of the new new 'do.

Wow, at first I thought your hair was just tied back - looks cool :)

Happy Easter!

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday Dave! Very convenient being able to celebrate it on a long weekend.

Good luck with the Greenbelt training - nothing like an impending half to get some urgency happening.

Hey Dave, I'm finally catching up with the blogs! I was hoping that your time on the boat (= not running) would give me a bit of a chance to catch up - seems like that's not going to happen!

You might be hoping to get down to 73kg, I'm hoping to get down to 78!

If not before, I'll see you at the Greenbelt.
