I've decided that this year (barring illness) I'm going to do the Burnie 10. The bloke (who is quite fit) informs me he does it in around 1 hour, and that I should be able to manage maybe 1 hour and 15 mins. I know I can do the waterworks circuit which is around 9000 steps (and therefore probably 8km) in 1hour 15 walking, so if I work on my jogging, 10km in 1hr 15min should be a realistic goal.
I'll be soon getting a bike that i will ride to and from work and will use that as my general fitness training, then closer to the event I will jog the waterworks circuit every Sunday to ensure I can do the jogging bit, leaving me an extra 2 km to push myself on the day.
Who thinks this is a realistic goal that I could achieve?
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
