Burnie 10

Postby Butterfly_Dawn » Mon Feb 20, 2006 7:36 pm

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!

I did not know what a Burnie 10 was so I just typed it in a google search to find it's a 10 kilometre road race.
Yes I think you'll be able to make it in 1 hour 15 minutes (if you practice doing a light jog shuffel)

Sorry, the Burnie 10 is so famous around Tassie and well known in the running circles I forgot it might not be known elsewhere. :oops: Usually, Steve Monagetti wins it. Or at least he has for the last few years.

Good on you. Yep, definitely an achievable goal.

For me, I'd just focus on completing the 10km circuit and forget about how long it will take me then next year (presuming it's annually) I'd try to beat that time...... but I'm not from Tassie so I'm not sure if the time's an important factor.

Look forward to hearing how you go,

It sounds like its going to be alot of fun.10 km is not to far and it will be a good challenge for you.

Burnie is such a loveley place....Hubby and I have been to tassie a couple of times and we always make a point of stopping there.

Good luck and above all have fun!
