Busy training...

Not a lot happening run-wise at the moment other than I am training for the Cape Point Half Marathon next month - 11 November.

We have been surprisingly busy here in Pearly Beach with guests - don't know where they have all come from! But it's nice to see them! There is also plenty of maintenance around The Ark going on at this time of year, as we look forward to summer, and a new holiday season. In between all of this, I am trying to get out for some running. The weather isn't great for running though
- mostly very windy or rainy, or both! Doesn't make for a fun run!

Oh well, I'll keep at it...


  1. Ooooh nice one; my half sister went out whale watching yesterday, she said it was absolutely amazing.
    Q: are you doing any speed work in with your training?

    1. Oh, the whales are certainly amazing! And the little babies are so sweet practising their jumping and 'standing on their heads' waving their tails about!

      I am trying to do a bit of speedwork once a week. It's a bit erratic but I'm sure it does make a difference! I also try to run for several kilometres 'fast' (aka keeping going even when it hurts a lot!) which I have found in my last 2 races definitely helps towards the end when you just want to finish!
