Wasn't meant to be inflammatory. I admire those that enjoy it. It's just something i keep putting off!

Get out and do it

Set a goal distance and slowly work towards it

Tore my ACL at touch footy a week ago.

Shocker of an injury, but in good hands with a surgeon who has plenty of State Cup players on his patient list.

Due for surgery in a couple of weeks, then 9+ months rehab/recovery.

Workmate mentioned he was contemplating the Canberra Half in April and asked if I wanted to join him. Maybe I should commit to a race, I sure need to, to really get back into it. I've just had an annoying head cold, on and off, for about a month now - but really in the past I would have run through that, and actually felt better for it.

Ticked off my second full yesterday in Queenstown, much tougher course than my first with plenty of undulations and being 70% trail/off road, managed to come home in 3hrs 9, only a minute slower than my first but happy with that given the course etc.
Can hardly walk today! Seriously considering running 5km parkruns exclusively from here on :D

Nice one kiwi, I have heard that’s a tough course, well done! Even parkruns feel daunting the day after :roflmao

I’ve got Western Sydney Ironman 70.3 this weekend. Didn’t have a great day out at my last longer course race a few weeks ago at Forster so I’m hoping for a solid one here.
