So for the last few months my coach, Melissa, finally roped my in to running some trails with the Night Owls & Possums (a branch of the Wooters). Turns out trails are awesome and the Wooters are a great bunch of people. This has only taken place on Friday nights and I have been running in... more

Up until this point my barefoot running had been going awesome. I was up to a 24km long run totalling a 50km+ week, all in bare feet and feeling great. I was just back from a couple weeks off so super keen to get back into it but fate had a different plan...

Got to love it. I just started getting back into it from a minor calf injury only to be struck down with the man flu...

In two days time... more

I've got to say, the lead up to this run was nothing short of nerve–racking! After having last Sundays long run (24K) off, I was feeling fresh and ready for the 35.5k run ahead — or at least I thought I was!
I decided it was a wise move to get up early and tackle this run before it got too hot.... more

After the brutal experience of cracking the 30k mark last Sunday, I was a little apprehensive about how things would go today — especially since the k's during the week had also increased marginally.
