After yesterday evenings 5km run I headed out this morning to test myself for an hour and see how I felt. A far cry from the training run I had planned on BVRT course today but I was happy to bag 10km along the river to Kangaroo Point and back with no loss of energy … Continue reading Challenge Day Eight – Week One Done
It was such a lovely morning I had to get out for a walk up to Southbank beach and back. Feeling a lot better than I was yesterday 🙂 All this talk of UTA this weekend has me feeling massive FOMO and itchy feet so I decided to go out this afternoon for an "easy" … Continue reading Challenge Day Seven – Morning Walk, Sunset Run
After a few days of drinking pod coffee I was craving a double macchiato this morning so decided to treat myself from my favourite dealer Cheeky Bean - by far the best espresso in West End which has stiff competition! Walking over the road and back was pretty much my exercise for the day - yes … Continue reading Challenge Day Five – Gimme The Coffee
Swapped my usual Tuesday speedwork session for a nice easy sunrise run around the river this morning. Not gonna lie, it was really hard to get going as I am still feeling really tired and achey, but I was glad I got out there. A trip to the doctors today and seems I have probably … Continue reading Challenge Day Four – Sunrise Run
Rest day today - well ok active rest day 😉 I find it really hard to not do anything so I went for a lovely 5km walk along the river at sunrise this morning. It was surprisingly chilly because I wasn't running. A beautiful crisp morning though, I love this time of year when it … Continue reading Challenge Day Three – Rest And Recover
It's a little early into the challenge for problems already but that's life I guess, and it's how you deal with it that determines your results. Woke up this morning still feeling tired and it was hard to drag myself out of bed knowing that I had a six hour run to do. But just … Continue reading Challenge Day Two – Things Don’t Always Go To Plan
After three months with no running due to a fractured foot, I finally got the go ahead from my specialist to start running again last week. Just in time to participate in the Step Up! Program that my husband and I are running in our business Empowered Health. The Step Up! Health Empowerment program includes a six … Continue reading Step Up! Restarting Couch to 5k
Three years ago I picked up my first box of products. Little was I to know what was ahead. It took me three months to ignore the excuses in my head and give this "shake diet" a go for a month. I was convinced that it wouldn't work like I had been told. How could … Continue reading 3 YEARS ON – WHAT A RIDE!
So the after effects of two weeks overseas with very little exercise and way too much rich food and cocktails was a 5kgs increase on the scales. I made a concious decision to indulge whilst I was away and so I don't feel guilty at all. I do however feel bloated, sluggish and cannot wait … Continue reading A New Challenge – 16 Weeks
So I survived my 30 day coffee detox! Physically not that hard, mentally more challenging. That first coffee tasted SO GOOD!!!
