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 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 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 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 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

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

A New Challenge – Diary Day One

So the last six months I have let a lot of things slip with regards to my health and it's time to get back on track. No better way for me to do this than to start a new 16 week challenge. I am always more disciplined when I am accountable to people other than … Continue reading A New Challenge – Diary Day One
