I'm a work in progress... trying to get fit and get healthy, by eating right and exercising. I have lost weight, but the biggest bonus is the energy I have now, and how I have a focus in my life. I like to blog, I'm inherently lazy, and I get paid to be fit- it's in my job description. I live in Darwin, Australia, and I'm a waddler. I run because I enjoy it. I like to be a bit faster than I was 12 months ago, but I'm not a racer. I would like to run 250K through the Gobi desert before I turn 50, but after only 100K in 1 months (as opposed to 2 days!), I realise my feet will probably snap in the process. *sigh* Facebook: hinuk shines email: firstname.lastname@example.org wordpress: hinukshines.wordpress.com (and no, it's not my name - it's two random words) Peace out.
But I’m going to do it anyway. I had the abysmal 5K on Wed night, an appalling 4.5K last night, and I’m determined to go and do 2K tonight to stretch… and I think tomorrow will suck big time.
Time to beat: 1:40
Person to beat: myself
Music: my heartbeat interspersed with my ragged erratic breathing
Before race feed: meal replacement
After race feed: breakfast - oats!
Carrying extra: Only chips on my shoulder. No extra water required for this distance (water points provided if required), may carry a Gu as I still have a box to get through from last year. Not really required over short distance, but may eat for mental pick me up rather than physical.
Pre race jitters?: Always :)
