Gold Coast Marathon

Sanna and I went to the Gold Coast at the weekend for the Gold coast marathon. We both trained very hard for it but I over trained I think and my right knee injury came back. I went to a physio for a few visits and he recommended I didn’t do the marathon so I stopped training and did the half marathon instead.
Here’s the lovely Gold coast

Sanna after I find her in the recovery area afterwards, she managed to complete all 42Km’s and did it in 3:50 VERY very well done, I’m really proud of her to have completed it. I completed the half marathon in 1:55, not bad considering I stopped all training 3-4 weeks before the event due to my injury.

The following day we hired a car to explore the Gold Coast a bit more and we drove away from the tourist area and into the countryside and found Lamington National Park. Unfortunately for Sanna Lamingtons did not grow on the tree’s there.
