Setting a personal best time around ‘the tan’ running track is a real challenge. Not only do you have to contend with the 3.83km of demanding running, but there are other obstacles such as prams, power walkers and random dogs. Want to know what a good time is?
The fastest runner around the tan is Craig Mottram – he did it in 10mins 12 secs. A brisk walk would see you home in roughly 36 minutes. Eddie (everywhere) McGuire did it in 17-something. Have a think about what you’d like to achieve and talk it over with your trainer.
Your goal might simply be committing to the six-week training program; losing 3 kilograms or beating your best mate. But whatever it is, it should be fun, as you’ll be more likely to achieve it.
