  • Pat,

    Sunday (yesterday) 4.40am: My alarm sounds and after a few seconds I realise what day it is. I am aware of a group of PCRG runners who are meeting for a long training run, 5.30am @ The Ship Inn. I am also aware that there is a decent swell happening down the Coast.

    So….a run….a surf….a run……a surf. I almost came close to tossing a coin before I decided it was high time I started to get back into some longer runs.

    Even though it was not a structured PCRG session I still found myself 'automatically' instructing everyone to 'KEEP LEFT' on the Goodwill Bridge.

    My decision was rewarding and I was reminded about the strength one can receive from running in a group environment. My mentor role @ PCRG often finds me controlling the group (which I totally enjoy) rather than focusing on my own development.

    There is a PCRG Group Force you can tap into a few times/week and with Gold Coast looming I will be locking in a number of Sunday PCRG long training runs in Daisy Hill State Forest (15-20min drive south of Brisbane City). I trained in the Daisy Hill State Forest for years and I am looking forward to sharing this fantastic running environment with you all. Stay tuned!!!

    Photos from last Thursday PCRG session can be viewed here.

    Photos from last Fridays PCRG session can be viewed here.

    Steve Grace will depart for New Zealand with his family this evening and here are Steve's parting words to PCRG.

    Our monthly 3k Time Trial will take place tomorrow morning and I would appreciate any assistance non participating PCRG members can offer with marshalling duties. PCRG safety rules can be viewed here.

    The PCRG 3K Time Trial is an opportunity for you to discover where you are currently placed fitness wise. Your ability over 3k will carry over into your 10k/Half Marathon and Marathon as long as your volume of training is healthy.

    SPEED + VOLUME = Your full potential

    Catch you in the morning. The force will be waiting for YOU!



    P.S. It's only water and I know that you won't take the soft option!

    Tribette Real Estate

    The most important thing is to sell your own home for the very best price possible and to achieve this in the quickest time. If you are waiting to move, or buy another property depending on the outcome of your own sale it is vital to have an agent who not only understands this but can also take positive action to ensure you realise your own dream.

    Bette McGuane (PCRG member) is ready to serve you!

    Canberra Marathon - April 13 - Less than 11 weeks

    The Canberra Marathon is a first class event and there is sufficient time to back up for Gold Coast.

    The course is fast and the weather is ideal.

    The course is fast and you will enjoy picture perfect scenery. There will be a PCRG team and I hope you will be able to take part.

    Your next run is only as good as your last recovery!

    If you fail to follow a sensible diet your body will not gain full benefit from all of those enjoyable and challenging runs and you won't recover as well as you possibly could.
