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

An hour easy run this morning followed by a beautiful walk along the river and into the city with a friend this evening. The sunset views from Goodwill bridge were amazing. Caught the City Cat from Eagle St to North Shore and spent some time at Eat St Markets - I have never been but … Continue reading Challenge Day 14 – Sunset Walk

Challenge Day Ten – Hello Monday

Why is it that it's always hardest to get out of bed on a Monday? I had to really push myself to get up this morning when the alarm went of at 5am. For a moment I almost convinced myself to take another hour and run this evening... But in the end my auto-pilot took … Continue reading Challenge Day Ten – Hello Monday

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 Seven – Morning Walk, Sunset Run

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

Challenge Day Five – Gimme The Coffee

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

Challenge Day Four – Sunrise Run

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

Challenge Day Three – Rest And Recover

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

Challenge Day Two – Things Don’t Always Go To Plan

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
