Only a few day's to go!!!

Six day's and counting until I start my long journey to Sydney! It's insane how fast this run has come up, seems even more crazy that it's already June and I'm almost 25 :O

Anyway, training has been going well, the last big run was a 60 km run which went really well, I didn't feel tired at all throughout the whole thing and was in high spirits too, was great. However after finishing the run I had a really sore spot on my right Hamstrings, I did a bit of stretching throughout the evening and by the morning the soreness was completely gone. I also had no indication that I had even run 60 km's the day before! It's amazing how the human body can adapt to extreme conditions and situations! 
 
On Tuesday I had another photo shoot for a newspaper, the South East Advertiser here in Brisbane, that should come out this week. It will also be the second time I have been in that newspaper, the first time was last September just before my 200 km run to the Glasshouse Mountains. Here is the link to the old article http://www.couriermail.com.au/questnews/hes-king-of-the-mountain/story-fn8ygho7-1226142793836 
 
Also, I am in a new article in the Coffs Coast Independent, it's quite a good article so check that out http://www.coffscoastindependent.com.au/news/local/sport/other/running-for-their-lives/2582919.aspx 
 
I received my brand new Hoka OneOne shoes, these will be the ones I run to Sydney in. The great thing about these shoes is I have found they last longer than other shoes I have worn, I get at least 1,200 km's out of a pair! So good ;D
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The best news from last week was that I have raised over $2,000 for WSPA - The World Society for the Protection of Animals! I am so thankful to every single person that has donated and helped me get over the $2,000 mark! Let's keep em coming, you can tell your friends, work mates, family and even strangers if you like :D WSPA have done a nice write up on their website about me and the run, it has links to the donation page http://www.wspa.org.au/latestnews/2012/the_forrest_gump_of_animals_run_andrew_run.aspx   

I only have a couple of big runs this week which I plan to do either on Monday and Tuesday or Tuesday and Wednesday! I will do my final blog post before the run on Thursday so look out for that one. I will then try and blog after every day's run during the big one depending on internet access :D 
 
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
