- Tuesday 10km just under 5 min per km pace
- Thursday 13 km just under 5 min per km pace
- Saturday - Long run - 25.76 km in 2 hrs 41 minutes
All runs were in absolutely perfect conditions cruised through the shorter runs and the first 20 clicks of the long run. From there it all went downhill and makes me wonder if I've bitten off more than I can chew... I'm a bit sore and sorry today but I'll get there.
Just so you're all aware the following is the Facebook post which got the ball rolling on this journey. Hugo is in my son Cooper's class at school.
Please feel free to donate I've see the link on the bottom of this post.
'MEET MY LITTLE MATE HUGO.... He is one of MY HEROES... on SEPTEMBER 20, I will run 42.2km for him. 🏃🏼🏃🏼🏃🏼
PLEASE support my cause (follow the link in the comments). 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Hugo has Neuroblastoma stage 4. He was 10 months old when diagnosed, and he had 5 tumours each the size of a peach in his tiny little body. 1 behind each lung, 1 in each adrenal gland and 1 around his spine. He has had 8 rounds of chemo, numerous surgeries , lost a kidney and had part of his bowel removed .
The last surgery in,July 2015, to remove part of the tumour that has invaded his spinal column compressing his spine. He still has 5 tumours - you can't remove neuroblastoma fully - it isn't a solid tumour - it's like chewing gum and sticks to everything it touches. What a brave little boy. Certainly makes the pain of training for and running a marathon worth while http://run.gofundraise.com.au/page/FavaS…
