Also,  want to try to get to Awaba St at least 4 times in the period, mid week for hill reps (Wednesday) – twice in Jan and twice in Feb.

Narrabeen Allnighter is a bit of a gamble. Might want to replace this one.

Let me know what you think.

Canberra Marathon “Australian Running Festival” Training 2011

As per last year a few Sunday Runs are below to offer an additional run for those entering the Canberra events, or if you just fancy a longer Sunday Run. The event this year offers a 5km, 10km, Half Marathon, Marathon and 50km Ultra Marathon, so something for all. It seems earlier this year, that’s because it is, last year it was in May!

The runs work in/around Woodies/SMC and other events and below is a draft program of runs. If anyone has any further ideas let me know!

Most of the runs will be starting from Inner West (Summer Hill more than likely) and take in the local Inner West highlights (Summer Hill, Summer Hill, Summer Hill – just kidding we will venture outside the greatest suburb sometimes!).
