Burnie Ten 10 : One of Australia's Premier Road Races

Those of you out there who have William and my
produce "Distance Secrets" will have heard me
talking about some of these runners before. The
third place getter Kim Gillard is a really cool
runner and I'm proud to say a great coach. I run
with him three times a week and the extra
competition and tips I get from him have done my
times a world of good. He's still a little quicker
than I am but we'll turn that around soon. Lee
Troop's a Legion and I was a little surprised to see
Kim beat him the weekend before last, but Kim is
really on fire at the moment and racing home into
a head wind probably favored Kim.

Of course those on the "Distance Secrets"
mentor program will have heard me talking about
Mark Jackson (Jacko) over the course of the 23
weeks. Jacko and I have a running battle as
scratch markers during the club season. Jacko
might have a few years on me but I've got his
measure now.

I haven't really heard of the first two place
getters before but as they are about my age I'd
better be keeping a closer eye on them from now

Here the list by position, number, name, Official
Time and finally Net time.

  • Hi, I signed up to do a 5k in 2.5 weeks. I've been running for one minute, walking 3 for about 3 weeks now. Any tips on getting my breathing under control and going longer with my running? Thanks.

  • Erika,

    Just read your post
    How to Turn Your Life Upside Down in 24 Hours (in 10 easy steps)
    . My best wishes go out to both of you and your family. That's a horrifying experience to have happen.

    I'm thinking that running a 5k may not be your top priority at the moment. However I believe very strongly that exercise will help. It gives you a chance to de -stress and concentrate on something for yourself for a little while. That may seem selfish but you also need to think about keeping your self strong through all this and exercise is a great way to get physical and mental strength.

    If you do decide to run the 5k race then the time you have left to train is probably too little to get any major improvement in breathing. I'd say 90 days is about the minimum time to see any significant improvements. However what your doing walking and then running is the greatest way to start. Do a minute run then 3 to 5 minutes walking, then another minute running and a further 3 to 5 minutes walking and repeat this until you have been exercising for at least 30 minutes. Then gradually increase the ratio of running to walking until you can run for the whole 30 minutes.

    Keep in touch
