New opportunities.

I've been given the opportunity to write a regular column for the local Echuca/Moama newspaper, The Riverine Herald. Therefore my blog will be now located on their website. I plan to still keep this one open so I can reflect on old posts but all new con...

Column 4

Long time no blog. It's not that I've been lazy, I've still been writing about running just not on this blog as I got asked to do a bit of freelance journarlism for the local newspaper as a guest columnist- The Riverine Herald. Obviously if you don't li...

And we made it. Week 8

Here we go. I'm writing this last blog from Melbourne Airport, Friday afternoon. I got off work a bit before lunchtime and headed down here. The reason I didn't do the Thursday night blog like I promised last week was because I got home from my last ses...

Week 7: 75%

Lets be honest, last week my blog was pretty down, I didn’t want to take you on a journey of every things always all good because sometimes it just isn’t. I said in it though that I wasn’t too worried as I knew with a bit more sleep, getting back into r...

Week 6: Spent

You’re stuffed. There’s no way you’re going to run well in Christchurch. You need training partners, move towns. Quit work and just do CRT teaching so you can spend more time focussing on running, you’re only young ones. You’ve pushed too hard. Maybe yo...

We're on the right track... W...

This week I was back in the swing of normal routine. Nearly every night I was able to sleep in my own bed and could benefit from taking some ownership over my life outside of the normal work hours, unlike the week before. This week saw another one of hi...

Trying to juggle Christchurch...

This week just gone has been a real challenging week for me for a number of reasons, looking ahead at my calendar this time last week I knew I was going to be in a bit of trouble fitting in my training as I was pencilled in to be at a leadership confere...

Christchurch Training Week 3

Monday PM: Stawell Herb Hedimenn Mile. 16th in 4.11. 5k warm up, legs felt great, Drills and strides. 6k warm down. Not my best performance, felt really fast at the start and then it settled down and I felt comfortable. Moved into 3rd spot for a short p...

Week 2: Christchurch Training...

This week is a bit different to a standard week of training as I’m coming off the Run for the Kids 15k Fun Run last Sunday and also preparing for a Monday Mile race coming up at Stawell tomorrow (Monday). A perfect week of training for me would have a l...

Christchurch Training Week 1

As I said last week in my blog I’m planning of documenting my training leading up to the Christchurch Half Marathon on June the 1st. Hopefully this can give some people the insight into my training and life and also give me a great opportunity to reflec...

Cya summer...

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is bitterest” -Confucius.  Reflection is an important part of running for me and given that my Track an...

Summer 14 living...

Greetings, my names Brady Threlfall, I used to write a regular blog about my running and what’s happening in my life with training, work and all that jazz. Then I stuffed it up, missed a bit over two months and thats resulted in me being an ordinary blo...

Falls Creek Part 1

Here’s a bit of a quick blog from up at Falls Creek, where I’m basing myself for a stint of altitude training to end 2013 and start the New Year. This is my second time up at Falls Creek, I came up in 2012/2013 for just a week and enjoyed it and thought...

This is my day in the life of Zatopek race day which also incorporated the Australian Champs, Victorian Champs and Commonwelath Games selection trial. Hope you get a kick out of reading it. 6:30am: wake up, not happy! Set my alarm for 7am and couldn't g...

10 people who have influenced...

I wanted to do something different in this blog and talk about people that have had an influence over me as a runner. I cheated a bit and doubled up a few times, but in a nut shell these are the people I'm really grateful to have in my running community...

Progression report...

I spent 30k this morning running along the trails of the Murray River in Echuca and Moama and thought to myself, geez I’m lucky. The trails I get to run on straight out my front door are amazing and with this awesome weather it also made it really enjoy...

66 days...

I’m puffing, my singlets carry a stack of sweat, my technique is all over the shop, I usually look pretty smooth even when I’m struggling but I can tell that’s not the case today. I can see it on people’s faces down the lake who are enjoying their after...

Chillin out...

Earlier in the year I blogged about what a week in the life with my training looks like and thought it would be a good opportunity to post about what I couple of weeks on a break looks like to give an insight of both sides of the coin. After the Austral...

The full loop...

Flashing back 7 years ago it was 2006, I was 18 and in my first year at university studying a bachelor of education. I was a bit of a cocky and naive kid who really didn't have much idea of the big picture of distance running as my exposure to it in Ben...

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted, actually it’s been way longer than that. Here I’ve just chucked together a few words on my last three races to fill you in on where I’m at. After Gold Coast Half Marathon I pulled up and recovered really well and...

Gold Coast Half Marathon Report

Last weekend I went up to the Gold Coast to have a crack at running another PB in the Half Marathon up there. I love this running festival and had confidence in my training and my legs were ready to go hard again after Christchurch half and Bundoora 12k...

In between...

Ladies and Gents, here's just a quick post to fill you in with recent happenings and hopefully give you a good insight about how my training looks post an A race in which was that of the Christchurch Half Marathon. After Christchurch I let the legs roll...

To tick the box...

Thursday nights session has just been banked, 7 x 200m strides in roughly 36 seconds, no stress just a 'turn over the legs' session, a favourite I always do the Thursday before an A race and actually the only session I haven't done in which Richard has ...

It's all good...

It's Sunday afternoon and I'm writing this post with a massive smile on my dial and it has nothing to do with running. One of my closest mates, Cramers, who sometimes features in this blog popped the question to long time girlfriend Nicole on Friday nig...
