Happy Birthday to me!

I am the "new" Bazza - and I am one year old today . The "Old" 68YO Bazza who used to frequent this place decided that he needed to rebirth himself - and hence I came into this running world 1 year ago when old Bazza first started his formal "training" log using Runkeeper. Since my Birth , Runkeeper has logged 155 running activities covering 786 kilometres and utilising 55,384 calories (That's not bad for a beginner baby!!) :)

Happy first birthday Bazza. Those are some impressive stats for just one year! Probably not a beginner anymore eh?

Happy Birthday Bazza! Did you use RK on your first run?

Nah - actually, I had been running (kind of) doing the Mayo Clinic 6 week course for a while before I started C25k and using Runkeeper - I am actually counting now from the very first time I logged miles on Runkeeper , which was for the second C25K run onwards. I truly started my new life exercising by walking and using exercise equipment in a local park way back in November last year - but none of that activity was logged.

Happy birthay Bazza what an impressive first year! Got any targets for the next one?

No - no real targets at this time - would like to lose a few more Kgs. I am planning to continue the running plan that I am currently doing until late April - then we go to the US for 2 months - I will probably lose a bit of fitness then and will have to start all over again when we get home!! :)

Happy birthday Bazza.

Is it still hot and sweaty down under. Up over is quite damp at the moment.

Are you still doing the orienteering?

Definitely still hot and sweaty here!! - and likely to be so for a long time yet. I am waiting for the cooler months to return to Orienteering. It starts at 9AM and by that time in Summer, it is too hot for me. I try to run before the sun rises in summer - even Parkrun starts too late here in Summer 7AM
