Challenge Week Three

Week three kicked off with Wildhorse @ Night 25km as night training for BVRT miler. Unfortunately I had a bit of a stack and banged my knee hard which meant I needed a couple of days off to let the swelling go down. By Tuesday all was good and I went out for my speedwork … Continue reading Challenge Week Three

Challenge Day Sixteen – Nothing To See Here

After last night's stack at Wildhorse where I went down heavily on my knees, my left one was pretty swollen this morning. Which meant my 20km road back up run wasn't an option. A shame because my legs actually felt pretty fresh. Enforced rest day. Well I guess I could have gone to the gym … Continue reading Challenge Day Sixteen – Nothing To See Here

Challenge Day Fifteen – Mud, Sand and Puddles

It was lovely not to have to get up early for my long run this morning, because I had 25k to do this evening at Wildhorse. A great opportunity to do a night training run before BVRT in a safe environment as I am not going to go out on the trails at night alone. … Continue reading Challenge Day Fifteen – Mud, Sand and Puddles

Challenge Day 14 – Sunset Walk

Challenge Day Thirteen – Evening Speedwork

A busy day of work and networking meant that I didn't get out until around 4.30 for my speedwork session. Really wasn't feeling it on the warm up but got into it ok. By the time I got to the cooldown I had nothing left so I cut short and walked home. Still feeling so … Continue reading Challenge Day Thirteen – Evening Speedwork

Challenge Day Eleven – Back To The Gym

After rejoining the gym a week and a half ago today was the first day I actually managed to get there! Decided to do the 6am pump class which was interesting... it's been six months since I did any weight training and years since I did a pump class. Not sure I would go back, … Continue reading Challenge Day Eleven – Back To The Gym

Challenge Day Nine – Back To The Trails

After a very late night of dinner, dancing and a little bit too much red wine I was so happy that I had arranged to meet up with a friend at Mt Coot-tha this morning for a two hour trail run. I may not have wanted to get out of bed but it was just … Continue reading Challenge Day Nine – Back To The Trails

Challenge Day Eight – Week One Done

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

Challenge Day Six – A Day Of Highs And Lows

So today has been a day of ups and downs in terms of my mindset. Started off well with some good news about my online business which put me in a good mood. The sun was shining and it seemed a lot warmer out than yesterday so I decided to head out for a walk. … Continue reading Challenge Day Six – A Day Of Highs And Lows
