Good call Pete! The gods are telling you to taper for real!
Could well be Nomsky ... but you know that runners OCD sort of thing ... never enough training ...
Well there you go. There are some things that can stop the mighty Pete! ;)
Great fortitude Pete!!
Great back to back Pete!
Impressive progress Pete! Great run.
Running 1:42'53.5 Average heart rate 177 bpm, 21.25 km.Very happy with this one - Gold Coast Half Marathon. Thought I would be hard pressed to go under 1:45 given all the long slow distance - but managed to get a bit of speed back. Not my fastest time for a 1/2 but felt very in control!
Running 5:11'41.2 Average heart rate 172 bpm, 50.44 km.Australian Running Festival. Came through marathon in 4.08 then slowed down a bit. Happy to have finished.
Trail running 3:59'01.3 Average heart rate 161 bpm, 25.07 km.Mount Roy, Wanaka NZ
Precarious views to the north-west and Glendhu Bay
Hit the snow line on the trail
No photo ever does justice to the gradient
More north-west looking photos
Looking east to Wanaka town
Snow and grade
An archetypal NZ photo
Running 1:40'33.8 Average heart rate 180 bpm, 21.32 km.Gold Coast half-marathon. I think this is my second best time.
Trail running 4:01'42.6 Average heart rate 154 bpm, 32.68 km.Top run with Craig. Bowen Mt to Bilpin. Some superb grades - but have to get fitter if I want to go the distance!
Running 4:08'16.2 Average heart rate 166 bpm, 42.94 km.Sydney Marathon - disappointed with the outcome the graphs tell it all but happy to finish all the same. Some good lessons learned about the sort of preparation that works for me.
Running 1:41'38.7 Average heart rate 186 bpm, 21.68 km.SMH HM 2012. Time a bit down on last year - worked hard on this new course & overall happy with my effort.
Running 3:44'33.7, 42.20 km.Canberra Marathon
PB - very happy - but forgot my HR strap!

How is your running going?
This interval running App paces you through your interval run by guiding your pace as 1km hard + 1km easy for as long as you wish. The App name indicates the fastest possible pace for the hard interval. The target pace is given to you on every section, following the 1km + 1km rhythm, but the exact pace comes as a surprise when the kilometer changes and both the hard and the easy pace can vary inside a window of 30 sec/km. The App uses sound alerts to pace you fast enough on the hard intervals and slow enough on the recovery sections. The run always starts with an easy kilometer and you should design your run to also end with an easy kilometer as cool down. Check the App Zone for other pace levels and mile versions.
This App indicates the efficiency of your running by introducing the unit "Beats Per Kilometer". It tells exactly how many times your heart beats during one kilometer with current pace and heartrate compared. Less heart beats means less effort to run this pace. This App lets you follow the value live based on last 10 second floating average value of heartrate and running pace.
This APP simulates the velocity of a hare running at your desired steady velocity. It shows instantly the DISTANCE you are behind/ahead from the hare, and gives relevant visual information as well. The build-in average overall speed/pace can't do this. USAGE: Guidance to achive your desired steady speed during TRAINING CONDITIONS. The feedback is the DISTANCE you run AHEAD/BEHIND the HARE. Eg. if you are 50 meters ahead/behind, your steady TRAINING speed on a track will be over/under your desired average speed. With this feedback you will obtain your steady speed throughout the TRAINING. As a result, you can evaluate consecutively over time the HR involved during these similar TRAININGS on that track. Practical training examples: Long Slow Distance moves at specific low velocity; extensive or intensive moves at specific steady velocites,... For RACE PURPOSES, use my other APP 'HARE CHASE TIME'. To improve useability and versatility, the APP is divided into 2 sections: A. SETTINGS PA...
This is a fantastic multi-purpose cardio trainer. In the Warmup Zone (HR Rest - 65% HRmax) the screen displays the message "WARM" with its intensity 0-100%. In the FAT Burning Zone (65% HRmax - 77,5% HRmax) the screen displays the message "FAT" with its intensity 0-100%. In the VO2max Training Zone (77,5% HRmax - 87,5% HRmax) the screen displays the message "VO2max" with its intensity 0-100%. In the INTERVAL Training Zone (87,5% HRmax - 95% HRmax) the screen displays the message "VMA" with its intensity 0-100%. In the SLOW down Zone (95% HRmax - 100% HRmax) the screen displays the message "SLOW!" with the current HR. Over the HR max (100% HRmax and up) the screen displays the message "STOP!" with the current HR. Enjoy! Master Yoda
If you are working on your running technique, this is a great App to help you perfect your stride. Stride length has a direct impact on your metabolic efficiency. Every runner has a different stride, and the stride also depends on footwear. Set it as one of your views in your running mode to see the length of your stride as you run. To find your optimal stride, use this App to test what stride length feels best while you are running at a moderate intensity (60-70% max HR). NOTE: Requires Foot POD.
Half-marathon time calculates your estimated finish time for a half-marathon in real-time. This is a great tool when striving for a new personal best. Include this app in your running mode and use it pace yourself to reach your goal.
Climb counter is for running hill sprints. After a couple sprints, it’s easy to lose count. Climb counter keeps track of how many sprints you have done. Just push the lap button once at the top of the first hill. After that, the app will count each sprint and show you the current total count.
