A run every 2 weeks

Adidas Sundown 30 May 2009
· Women’s 10 km and Saturday Night Race
· Finished in 56 min
· Flat route
· Downside is the crowding or traffic on the return journey
· Not much aching – I suspect the hip aches were more to do with the day long shopping on Sunday

Laguna Phuket International Marathon 14 June 2009
· 10.5 km
· Finished in 1:03 hours
· Worst timing ever
· First time that I actually had to walk
· 20-30% was off road – kampong and pot hole ridden roads, Elephant Trail, parks
· Great organization from the airport transfer to the route inspection to the pasta party and farewell dinner
· Cheap massages at Angsana Spa – THB990
· Legs felt like a truck ran over them for the next 2-3 days

Standard Chartered Kuala Lumpur Marathon 28 June 2009
· 10 km but someone told me it was 10.6 km
· Finished in 59 min
· Slower timing due to hills and constant elevation
· A bit of a niggle on the quads but nothing as serious as Laguna

Conclusion: Need more hill trainings!
