Workaholic week

The Woodcutter crew looking lean and mean

Balance of a mountain goat, me.

It’s been ages since my last post. The last few weeks have been filled with back-to-back work and training, very little sleep and a severe lack of time to think. Not that I’m complaining .. lots of work is always a good thing, but I’m completely and utterly knackered.

Looking forward to the Sabah Ultra Trail next weekend .. at last some time off!
Last weekend was the 2XU Compression Run – 12km on the flat. Rocked up knackered from a long day at work, but it felt good to blast the cobwebs away and feed off the general race atmosphere. It was a similar route along Marina and Kallang as all the other short races use, and the cloud cover and slight drizzle prevented the day from getting too hot. Kept it steady since I had to clock 12 miles for the day. Overall women’s 9th place in 52:30, then ran another 10km home to clock the miles.

This week just gone has been another crazy packed one, and finally managed to get out on the trail this morning with some of the other ultra-runners. I was introduced to some new routes and we all ran the Woodcutter’s Trail for the first time as well. Thoroughly enjoyed the run today, lovely muddy trail with river crossings and lots of exposed roots, and nice to know that there’s a different trail to explore!
