[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
I went out for a run althis morning, intending to do an easy 5 km but was enjoying myself so kept going. Ended up doing 11.5 km -- oops! I did end up walking the last couple of kms. My damn running shoes - every time I go for a long run or a run when it's hot, my feet must swell and the shoes get very very tight across the toes causing blisters and pain. I so can't afford new running shoes at the moment so I'm just going to have to put up with it.
Woohoo, I just got a call about a job. Interview tomorrow.
Yesterday I worked out the runs I want to do for the next six months. The main ones are:
1/5 Lorne Mountain to Surf
7/2 - Sunset Series 1 @ Zoo (running through the zoo, how cool is that?)
1/4 - Run For the Kids - I'm so excited about this one.
20/5 - Great Ocean Road Half Marathon
That's a whole world of challenges.

Fingers crossed for the job. Very easy to see how you could mistake 5kms for 11.5kms..... not! Have a great day.

Oh Kathryn, I have been raking my brains trying to think of a race to do before R4K. I completely forgot about the Sunset Series. Thanks :-)

Those runs sound great :) I haven't even tried my new running shoes yet!!! eeek you can borrow them if you want :)
On the blisters - check your socks. Cotton isn't the best fabric - it absorbs sweat, stays wet and tends to cause friction, resulting in nasty blisters.
ooh good luck with the interview, fingers crossed for ya! toes and eyes too X-)
Not sure how 11.5km is stupid!! I'd love to get swept up in the swing of things and suddenly realise I'd just run 5km more that I intended!!! Unfortunately I'm still at the stage where my lungs rather noisily remind me I have done enough.
