Date: 5 March 2017
Time: 07:01
Distance: 18.9km
Type of cardio: Trail Running with a lot of hiking thrown in
Pace: 8.28 /km
Course: Captain Carrot Trail Run - Magaliesberg
Notes / comments:

Captain Carrot was maar farking tough but I survived, On top of the Magaliesberg Mountain there were no trails so we had to follow markers through the veld with knee high grass and plenty of rocks and likewise coming off the mountain, exactly the same.

I read a comment from someone on Strava who reckoned that it was tougher than 1st year Chemistry. :lol:

I went to the beach for some cardio training, water was a bit cold...on a serious note, would you guys recommend a treadmill or rowing machine.

I need to get some form of training on before hitting the streets/water.

I'm planning a SUP and or Kayak for summer, but knowing where I used to be from a fitness level to where I am now, I'd more than likely push way too hard when resuming the regimen.

Why are we such suckers for these farking tough races? The Vasbyt is something similar to the Captain Carrot and one of the worst races I’ve run but still I’m going back each year… One thing if you enter these types of races is that you don’t go for time. You just go and finish the race finish and klaar. :D

I would rather go for a rowing machine. We have a treadmill at home but hardly use it. A treadmill is to stationary for my liking. I like to run with all my senses. I get quickly distracted and have at least 7 different routes I’m altering between. :oo

There is a cheaper way though...get yourself a skipping rope, an old tire and long enough rope to drag it behind you for speed work ;)

I've been after a water rower for a looong time, the kids enjoy the treadmill, but that too will pass I'm sure...

Well done Bles.

My legs were feeling still a tad sore after Sunday's trail run/hike so will go out for a run tomorrow morning.

I bought some new road shoes, Hoka One One Clifton 3's which have a 5mm drop, so will see how they perform.

The plan of action is:
Thurs - Run (+-9k)
Fri - Cycle (+-30k)
Sat - Cycle (+- 30k)
Sun - Run (+-15k)

Thanks Thug. That is some long distances compared to the ones I currently run and cycle. My plan for action is a slow 3-4km run for tomorrow, rest n Friday, 10km race on Saturday and a 20-30 km cycle on Sunday. Those shoes look interesting. It is almost the same type of shoe than the Saucony Kinvara shoes my sons are running with. It is a 4mm drop (22mm heel, 18mm forefoot). Let us know how they perform. :thumbup:

5:21/km is a lekker pace for a 9.5. :thumbup: I'm still far away from that pace but my goal is to run a 5 min flat per km on a 10 before the end of this year. :D

I never run that fast! :shock: The fasted I've run was about 4:50/km on a 10. But remember, 6 years ago you were 6 years younger... :lol: :lol:

I used to do 30 kms in 60 mins, including warm-up every single morning for years, if there was no race Sunday, I did 60kms on Saturday and 80kms on Sunday. If there was a race on Sunday, I'd do 50kms on Saturday and 100+ on Sunday - then back to the 30 the next morning
