Hi Rich hope you and the family are well.

I'm really liking the photos you post of your explorations, keep em coming.

Invo 8 have just opened a retail outlet here & I was wondering what shoe you wear & if you would recommend them. Except for online, until recently, they have been reasonably rare down here. Cheers

Hi Rich, I don't know if you will get this before you leave for Eric's run camp, but I just wanted to wish you good luck. Enjoy every second & I look forward to seeing & reading about your experience. I'm Green with envy. Good luck mate.

Hiya Rich hope the dirt is treating you well. The "Running Man" you use as your Monika, I've seen it before but for the life of me I can't remember where.

How did you come across it, it's a great image.

I know, I know I said I only had "one" more question last comment but this is the real last one, promise, I do :-]

What model Garman do you used, I'm looking to up-grade & wondered what you were using?

Thanks for your help Rich but 1 last question, I'm redoing Erics marathon training program jumping in at week 4 as its 16 weeks to the half and wondered is there any spacific part of my training that I should I modify to any great extent.

Again thanks for the advise

Hi Rich hope you & yours are well. As I've heard that only the "in" crowd run the half marathon I've signed up for a trail half marathon at the end of February next year.
I was wondering if your could suggest any changes I might make to a marathon program (if you would make any) that will help me in the half. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

It's about time someone kept an eye on you Rich, there's method in her madness you know!

Hi Rich how are you & your family, well I hope. I too have taken a couple of days off & feel much better for it. I'm now doing Eric's Marathon program & after some hard days some days off before a week with 2 X 25km runs at each end I feel refreshed & ready to go.
How's your training going?

No I am not as yet running for anyone but I think is something worth while doing. At present I'm completing week 5, tomorrow will be my long run, of Phase 2 of the Strategic Running Foundation & I'm amazed & ecstatic how I'm able to train 5-6 days a week & look forward to the next days run. I'm not injured, sore, though sometimes a bit stiff, and I'm really enjoying the program & the challenge. Eric your a genius.

Hi Rich hope all is well with you, the family & your training. When you run the 1/2 in October will you again be wear Oxfam Green? I will look at running my October marathon for a cause but I don't think Oxfam is one I can support this time. Take Care.

Rich I have a long, long way to go but I dare to believe because I learn from and are inspired by people like you. Yes I doubt myself and fail all the time but the impossible seems closer because you are living and striving for your dream, your Cool Impossible. Therefore the possibility of attaining my Cool Impossible seems some how closer.  You then add Eric, his dedication to us all and TCI and anything can be possible.

Thanks for your support Rich its much appreciated

I agree Rich but I can also aspire above and beyond myself. My training partner Geff, his shadow is fitter than me :-) but training with him pushes me, challenges and expands my horizons. Through The Cool Impossible and everyones support I have had what I though was possible redefined and now I aspire above and beyond myself ......... and believe.

Thanks Rich for your support, I'm not yet at your lofty heights but who knows maybe one day.

Hi Rich, I was again thinking of you the other night as I was doing, day 2, week 10 of Phase 1 of the Strategic Running Foundation at the local oval trying to channel your sprint talents. You have said before not to look at your watch until the end, after the run or sprint is over. Well I'm habitually at looking at my watch, watching the time, and I think it comes from wanting it to be over because as I have said before, I've never really enjoyed sprints or repeats and havn't done much of that sort of training. So the other night after getting my bearings on the first 5' in HRZ.6 I purposely did not look at my watch and it took some doing but by the last one I was feeling the time and distance to within about 20". I still went to look at my watch but stopped myself concentrating on my form and breathing and each 5' interval I ran a little further while keeping within my zones. Thanks Rich for the great advice.

Take care mate. Robert

I can add;

Running teaches me humility by reinforcing how much I have to learn and how far I have still to go.

Running reafirms who I am and who I want to be.

Running clears my head so I can think better.

                                          And it just feels so good.

Rich, hope you are well, how's the training going, I suppose I should have said, a couple of weeks back you said you were having a break, so have you started running again and if so, how's your training going?

I was thinking of you on Monday night as I was doing, day 1, week 9 of Phase 1 of the Strategic Running Foundation at the local oval trying to channel your sprint talents. Through Eric's program I'm liking the speed work more and more but I never used to, so as a result I never really did it. I'm looking forward to test week in week 12 to see how I've improved.

Take care mate. Robert
