saturday 21 - tomorrow
excited about it ...
it's only 3 weeks until the glasshouse100m - 54km training run through the great walk in the whitsundays ... have a heel spur thats decided the past few days it will give me some grief and flare up sporadically!!! nice! hoping, i make it without too much problem, for once i start - committed the distance! my fingers are crossed it doesnt turn into a km of running and 53 of limping!! ... :)

however, the heel, has been ok once i start using it and it warms up a little ... the longest run i have done in one hit lately though has been 30kms, so not sure how much the extra distance will impact - just hoping it can go the distance, plus, tonight have been stretching the calf, using ice and rolling a tennis ball underneath the heel! ha - using ice!! thats bad terminology. drug days, LONG gone. 'using an ice pack, under my foot!' :D

sooooooooooooooo, next entry, will be the success, no matter the time, for my main goal however is to get the nutrition right, ready for gm, get the endurance working for me, the time is fairly irrelevant, though id sure like it to be 'good'!!
also have the gps from ses so we get a more accurate mapping of the trail, than what we have. just got to remember to use the set points as i go along ...

went and voted today, so, tomorrow i dont have to worry any about it and get myself in a tizz if i am late in getting back from running. not sure the point, who i voted, wont win :) sobeit! who did i vote? hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. the one i want to win, of course!
hint: it wasn't for a girl :P~~ (sorry girlpower!)
i should, get to bed.
