Little Wobby isn't technically a part of the GNW but it is a part of the GNW 100 course so I'm including it!

This week it was back to Girrakool but striking out towards Somersby to check out the other section of GNW. Just like last week this was incredibly beautiful but subtly different.

Gearing up for GNW 100K it was time to do a little more exploration and see what I was in for! This time I headed down to Girrakool to go visit Mt Wondabyne, the highest point on the Central Coast.

Last week I hit 60km a week again, which is almost back to where I need to be in prep for Mount Solitary 45km in April and then UTA100 in May! I still don't know how I'm going to manage UTA100 by May but I just need to trust my training and hopefully make it through without injury.

Now that I'm back in shoes I've been able to really pick up the kilometres and get out exploring rocky areas I couldn't before. Well, I could but it was slow and after about 20km I would get tired and kick the end of my toes off and that's simply not fun.

Well, it was a bloody hard decision to give up on this barefoot trail quest but I after the last couple weeks of injuries I feel it's time to let it go.

Well, it's been a few months since my last barefoot trail update and man has it been a roller coaster! Plenty of highs and lows but my love of trails is growing significantly, which is awesome. Road running is officially dead to me! Well, I will still run a few events here and there but trails are definitely the focus.
