Back to Basics…


So I am back in the gym after months of road running. Light seems to be an issue for early morning training. Summer is over. I am a bit run down so the gym will be good to build myself up again.

Forgot how easy it is to run on a treadmill! Just one speed…just one level :-). No nasty surprises.

Starting my strenght training programme for the next 4 weeks, tomorrow. Will be working with a personal trainer 🙂 Not sure why, but I feel so intimidated by the all the equipment in the gym. Don’t know how to use it, need someone to show me the ropes, after that I know I will have the confidence to use the circuit and become STRONG!

Distance: 4km
Time: 41min
Calories burn: 392cal
Max HR:176
Avg HR: 139
EASY RUN!….. 🙂

About Moerieda Mackay

Late to running and absolutely loving it! I'm married to my soulmate, Adam and blessed with 3 beautiful children. I am a Business Transformation and Innovation Professional and holds a MSc (Eng) in Industrial Engineering. Yip, a bit of a workaholic. I became addicted to ultra running whilst searching for that elusive “work-life” balance at the age of...40! I have no sporting background and with zero athletic ability running is by far the most challenging thing I've taken on but it has put me on a path of self discovery and serious transformation both physically, mentally and spiritually...and I love it!
