Sunday August 8th will be the 40th running of Australia’s premier fun run, the Sun Herald City2Surf.

It’s hard to believe that a year has gone by since I started blogging about my City2Surf training plan in 2009.

City2Surf finish 2009

Finish gates 2009

Anyway, I had some great feedback from people last year via Facebook, Twitter and email, so I figure I might as well do it again this year.

The training program I set last year is still online and I recommend this as a great start if you are just starting off and you are injury free and want to stay that way!

I have a few friends who have indicated that they are prepared to give the City2Surf a go this year so I’ll put together a program tailored for them, (ie. people who don’t usually do any jogging and are a bit overweight).

My own training schedule will roughly follow the program I put up last year, but I’ll be substituting some elements of my 2010 training program.
