I thought blogger did an automatic save? Ah, you're not blogger, you're typepad. Somewhere, then, typepad is storing all the brilliant articulate hilarious insightful "ones that got away", and they will reappear again someday under someone else's name.

You and me both. I so wanted to go to training today as it was nice short 800's rather than 8k time trial! But:
1) I forgot to change my alarm from 5.30am back to 5.15am
2) When I lept out of bed my leg was still sore
3) When I looked out of the window it was p*****g it down.

Now one of these problems I could have coped with, maybe even 2, but all three and unfortunately I went straight back to bed and spent the next hour and a half wide awake cursing myself.

Oh well there's always next week


I have some pretty suspect advice about post-grad study (ie ARE YOU MAD!!??) but I have some pretty good solutions to blisters, so heal this one up with the betadine (ouch) and next time we see each other remind me to teach you the gentle art of safe blister popping... :-)


Thanks honey

About Me

  • I'm Ellie, a 27-year-old runner from Sydney, Australia. I have managed to secure a place to run the 2007 New York Marathon as a fundraiser for the Heart Foundation. I am part of a group of people who have each committed to raising $10,000 for the Heart Foundation.

    The Heart Foundation is a cause that is close to the hearts of lots of Australians. I didn't know this - but 48,000 Australians die each year of heart disease. This is one of the reasons why 6 years ago I decided to change my lifestyle and a year and a half ago I decided to be a runner. I am so grateful to be healthy and fit and what better way to celebrate this and give something back to an organisation that is doing so much.

    Click here if you'd like to sponsor me. Thanks so much for your support!

    Outside of running, I run (pun intended) my own training, coaching and consulting business. Please visit me here
