Difficult But I’ve Done-IT!


The 2 most challenging things about following a new training program is to “START” and then to “STICK to the PLAN”. Not sure how, but I’ve manage to do exactly that this week!

I did not do the long run on Sunday as I raced on Saturday but in total I have logged 36km for the week…still a Million Miles to go before 70km a week with about 8 weeks??? to go.

Definitely need to start PUMPING IRON. This weekend’s race was full of hills. PROCLAIMATION HILL! When you tired and it comes to LEGS vs LUNGS, neither will win. What’s important is the CORE and your ARMS. They will ensure you keep moving forward when all else fails! Especially climbing those hills! :-).

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!
