In the last two weeks i have Orienteered for the first time,and i have Rogained for the second time.
Despite this good stuff including the continuing joy of my baby son and wife, i am feeling a little sorry for myself after not getting the job i interviewed for last week.This is the first time i havn't secured the job i tried to get in over 10 years.
Perhaps that is a little melodramatic as i've had the same job for nearly 10 years now,but i really wanted this one and tried really hard in the interview.The interviewer called me on Thursday while i was out running and when i called him back he said that i'd done really well but i missed out 74 points to 77 for the guy who got it i guess i should fairly pleased after he said he wouldn't bother with interviews if someone else left the department in the next 3 months but that is only small consolation.
Decided City 2 Surf is my main goal race this year tossing up the idea of a marathon in September to Qualify for 6' Track next year. The idea of a road Marathon doesn't really excite me though.
City 2 surf in 60 mins tough but cool!
SMH half in 90 mins quite tough but cool!
Road Mara...not so cool
6' would be more fun.... i have mountain biked it so i know it would be tough but a huge challenge!
Also i have put my 20min 5km goal back a week so it will fall in an official race "The Fitness Five" on the 9th April (5 weeks).I am commencing training tonight using the program in July 2005 Runner's World.
Tonight 6.5km easy (5:29 pace)
