I WILL run a marathon one day. I'd like to go <2:40, but first I must do 1:13-1:15 for the half. My return to running is going to be a big thrust for my riding next year. Let's just see how that one goes:-/

That must be an average speed of about 21kmph. I would love to just average that in a mountain bike race???. Hey sounds like your hike to Lost World was a great adventure.

Ditto that one! Man, 42 x <3min k's, 0 secs recovery. I remember lying flat on the ground after 5 x <3 mins with 30 secs recovery. Yeah Lost World is pretty amazing. I want to return for some more exploration.

Blody blogger, how do I get these freaking links to work:(
