You've Got to Lift
Running: - nil, yet
We were watching Biggest Loser last night when Lisa was there with her achilles in a cast from an overuse strain. I mentioned that she shouldn't have been injured if she had taken the right steps after first feeling some pain. No doubt she continued on, and the injury got worse.
I said to Mrs TF that I don't seem to get injured because I don't push myself to the limits. She said that because I don't train hard enough, that is why I have had some poor results recently in the long ultras. She quoted Glasshouse Mtns 100 mile in 2005, DNF at 127 kms with injury, Glasshouse Mtns 100 mile in 2008, finished walking last 60 kms, too buggered, last year's 24 hour at Caboolture only managed 135 kms, injured ITB.
She said, quoting word's from Shannon Noll " You gotta lift". I said, words from Chrissie Amphlett " There's a fine line between pleasure and pain " and " Only the good die young "
Therefore, I gotta lift, I need a Michelle Bridges type person to kick my backside over the next few months. May be the Commando could help. Need to go from 80% to 90% in training.
If any one manages to get along to a training run with me, be prepared !!
