Long time for a post huh!?

1. Carrie my wife is pregnant and we due to have twins in early January.

2. Ran city to surf in 66:57 i am apalled, I got to 7km in 31:07 but fell apart instead of negatively splitting!Last 4km in 20 minutes!

3. I think i will have only the time to run when i sneak out so i think i will concentrate on 3km racing for the immediate future and put Ultras on the backburner.We usually have a 3km race at the track most thursday nights and a full blown club 5km racing over the summer.These have always been my favourites culminating with a 10:47/3km twice this year and 18:54/5km earlier in the year for 2 consecutive races.I would like to go for 10:00 flat.I had hoped with a concentrated plan from Jack Daniels this may be possible by January but it might be close or am i kidding myself?


4. i am getting some investments planned that i have wanted to do for years but procrastinated over so that is exiting i want to outsource as much of the management as i can to focus on family.

Thats it for now!I was going to add a photo of Carrie but she insists i wait until Tuesday when she is dressed "more nicely"

It was great to hear that news first hand on Sunday Adrian. Congrats to you both.

You had a sub-60 going there - next year for sure!

If you can do a good volume of speedwork you can probably get down to 10, and 18 for 5k. I'd suggest longer intervals - 5 x 1k at 3:25ish, or 1200s. With anything shorter/faster, have short recoveries and try to reduce the recovery over time. 76-78s for 400s is quick enough if you keep the recovery short. Also, do long easy warm-ups - 3k or more.

Yes, post a photo when she looks nicer ;)

Congrats again Adrian. Hearing your news Sunday was even better than hearing about all the great runs everyone had.

And I agree with Ewen, sub 60 next year for sure.

Congratulations on your wonderful news Adrian. Enjoy the moment as it doesn't happen very often in your lifetime.

mate great to see you posting again - and congrats on the baby news.

So we bumped into each other down there did we? Geez mate, I'm sorry I may not have responded - Johnny Dark also commented that I wasn't really "there" when we talked.

Hope we get to catch up properly some time when my head's a little more connected!

Congratulations on the twins! The 3k and 5k is probably the best distance to focus on when life gets busy.

Hopefully you will still be able to make it to some of the mountain running series.
