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!!!

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.

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.
