Bridge Run Success

September 20, 2009

This morning I had great fun running 9km including over the Harbour Bridge. My unofficial time (i.e. from my stopwatch) was 47:41.07, well inside my goal of 50mins. Stay tuned for official results.

Bridge Run Correction

September 18, 2009

Thanks to Steve Jacob on the ‘Today’ show, I am informed that the Bridge Run is only 9km. Therefore I am readjusting my goal to 50 minutes. I’ll let you know how I go.

The weather is looking better too – only 24 degrees max.


Bridge Run Countdown

September 16, 2009

On Sunday I, God willing, will be running in the 10km Bridge Run as part of the Sydney Running Festival. I’m not a great long distance runner – sprinting is more my thing – but it’s been a helpful impetus to do more exercise. I’m really looking forward to the event, mainly for the scenery: running across the Harbour Bridge, Cahill Expressway, Maquarie St, Botanical Gardens with the finish at the Opera House.

My main ‘training’ has been the 7km Bay Run and my times are dropping:
30/8 – 38’02.25
5/9 – 36’27.00
14/9 – 36’27.01

My goal is to finish in under 55 mins by anything under an hour would be great. We’ll see how I go. The 27 degrees forecast won’t help!
