Sometimes, I don’t know what words to write
Sometimes, I don’t know what words to write
I run lots. I coach basketball. I work long hours in an office 50km from home. I support my kids and watch them in their sports, and I’m there for them as often as I can. I am no stranger to them despite some weeks getting the better of me. I am a full time father, that’s my non negotiable. I don’t have many secrets, and I’m as honest as they come. We live in a bubble and we look after us, my wife and I. 17 years married this week. I need to buy a present... Sometimes you just do whatever it takes, and now and then we crash. And, you know, that’s ok isn’t it?  Isn’t that just life? 
LOVE my little kinder girl who ‘graduated’ this week, the last of 4 to finish kinder and move onto school. 
I’m tired. 
Goodnight ♥️

Kicking off the week was hard today, the legs were absolutely STUFFED more than I realised from sundays big run. However I put on my big boy pants And just tried to move, 6m was the quickest I could move the start with, and progressively things got better, still sore but better. The blood flowed through the legs and things felt possible again. I finished this run much faster than how I started it, and now I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s run already 😊

CONFESSION. Hi, my name is CJ and I’m a perennial under-trainer.  I have run over 80km in one week only 5 times this year and that includes the weeks I ran UTA100 and SCC100. I’m supposed to be an ultra runner 🙄. Anyway I do what makes me happy and I have no regrets, but I am getting the feeling that long term, under training and over achieving won’t make me happy. I think I want to put in more work in order to achieve better results in races. I see some huge numbers put up by some ultra mates and although I’m not jealous, as we are all different, but I do want more. Getting better doesn’t just happen. You have to MAKE IT HAPPEN. So that’s what this post is about. A change. Same smiles, same happiness, but higher work rate. I’m ready 👊🏼

Sometimes we lose our way a little bit. Or at least that’s how it feels. Today I bit off just as much as I thought I could chew, 40km Fat Goat Run. I devised it Friday and announced it on LTR, that kept me accountable. I had to hit 40km and I had to do 5 x 1000 step repeats to achieve it. Very happy runner. I hurt and I struggled, and I lost 3kg through sweat... but I’m back!! 😊#LTRunners #lysterfieldtrailrunners #trailrunners #fatgoat #thefatgoat #fatgoat40 #ultrarunners #ultracrew #1000steps #lysterfield #upwey #belgrave #sweat #run #sundayrun #sundayfunday #lsr #thathurt #imbackbaby #happyrunner #legsfeelgood #letsseetomorrow

Sunday. I ran 😎😊♥️. It was nice to be back at Lysty with some big numbers again, over 20 excellent runners came along to try their luck at the Goat loop. Makes the week crazy complete it really does. So happy to be back running with mates and feeling ok, on the path to recovery now 😃. #Today #goatloop #strava #trailrunners #ultrarunners #trail #ultra #epicshit #goat #legends #awesome #athletes #lysterfield #ltrunners #sundayrun #sundayfunday #runners #running #runners #happyrunner

Finally. Running clicks everything back into place. Motivation, happiness, goodbye lethargy and bad eating. Goodbye snooze button. Hello dark and welcoming early birds. Hello oppressively warm summer morning sweat sessions. Was hard to back up after yesterday’s 14km but just felt better and better the longer I ran. I’m sure it’s supposed to be the other way around 😂. #happyrunner #back #feelingbetter #roadtorecovery #negativesplits #progressive #runner #ultrarunner #trailrunner #waitinggame #itstartsnow #earlybird #melbournetan #backinthegame

Back at work. 2 hour drive on the Monash. First pic new iPhone 8 coz I accidentally drop kicked my last iPhone 50 metres along Southbank on my last run... #iphone8 #nearlyboughtapixel2 #outside #shotoniphone #gunnabehot #monashsucks #backtowork #dealingwithlife #bepresent #fatterat40 #focus #seethesunthroughthetrees
So say I’m pissed off is an understatement. I nursed a sebaceous cyst through Melbourne Marathon, which had got infected and turned into an abscess, which I had removed, which turned into a “seroma”. This is bigger than the bloody cyst, back for more draining... over it. Never felt as old as my age before, but I feel every hour of my 40 years right now. #fitterat40 #fuckedat40 #cyst #abcess #seroma #sexy #ultrarunner #runner #trailrunner #ijustwannarun #pleaseletmerun #alliwannadoisrun #hopeyouhavealreadyeaten #humanbodycanbeshit #imsupposedtobehealthy #whatthefuck #whattheactualfuck #passthebourbon #passthepainkillers #oppositeofsexy #overit

7 hospital visits in 7 days = 5.5km thanks to a stair session after I was told I needed surgery. Sure beats my best Garmin steps streak 👍🏼. Hoping this nightmare might be over by Wednesday ready to make up for lost time with some big runs over the long weekend. My legs are SCREAMING for hurt!! #overit #painistemporary #drugs #strava #hospitalsucks #runner #ultrarunner #trailrunner #sadrunner #stepsarefriends #waitinggame #oldbody #alltheheadaches #illberight
When the surgeon says let’s cut you open tomorrow 7am, so you head to the 1000 stairs. Just the removal of a very painful cyst that’s got infected, been nursing it for the last month. Now is the time, #healthcomesfirst #butfirststairs #alive #doit #ultrarunner #ultradad #therapy
COMMITMENTS. Another day another dollar. I spend 15 hours a week commuting, probably average 45 hours a week at work, I coach basketball,  take training sessions, and get my kids to little aths all Saturday morning. We have 4 great kids and a very busy life, On top of this my wife works full time. Oh, and I choose ultra running as a past time to be passionate about. So - What do I want? Everything, but I’m also content living in the moment. I want to be a better father, husband, coach, worker and runner. I want to be a better role model. Its easy to get overwhelmed, very easy, but I work hard to be present in each and every moment. Now... better get back to it 😜 #runner #father #dad #husband #worker #employee #work #balance #overwhelmed #present #bepresent #focus #bebetter #selfimprovement #determination #noteasy #dealwithit #alwaysthinking #liveinthemoment #behappy #life #reallife #nofairytale #luckyman #justrun #worklifebalance #passthecoffee
