Twenty 20 and 2021 were pretty crazy years by anyone's standards, and I was one of the many who completely lost it and did no exercise, or very little. I am now in a new place, literally and figuratively, and it's time to get right back into it.I have moved interstate and amongst other things, … Continue reading Getting back into it
...in the space of a few weeks Life as we know has changed irrevociably. Coronavirus (covid 19) has taken the world by storm, literally. Countries are shut down, our borders here in Australia, and Tasmania, have closed (and being an island continent makes it somewhat easier to control) and projects, plans,, races, wedding and funerals, … Continue reading What a change..
Yeah yeah yeah. The same old thing being touted by all and sundry at he beginning of any new year. I prefer not to go with resolutions as such, erring on the side of 'how can I improve on what I did last year, what can I do?' I like to take things in small … Continue reading New Year, New.. blah, blah, blah
I just realised it's been 6 months since I posted last. So much has happened. Little did I know that the 2 days later my mum would have taken her last breath and everything went pair shaped.

Hubby had a more stressful change yet still managed to get a motorbike ride in. So what actually happened? It started … Continue reading Inadvertent Trail Run
I was under prepared.I had a basic plan.A vague hope for finish times.Get out there..have fun..finish. I did it. I finished and fell into hubby's arms, sobbing tears of both exhaustion and the joy of it being over.The last few kms were of utter pain and 'where is the end?' coupled with an inner joy … Continue reading convicts & wenches, 25k trail

On the day, the nerves were still there, (as they should be) and it all came together nicely.I did my usual and went out too fast, yet by the 3k … Continue reading Ross, 5k, 14/4/19

For the first time in around 8 weeks I went our for a run last night. Oh. My.God.It wasn't just hard, it hurt.Yeah it was warm, but not excessively so to cause a problem, yet I struggled like it was 40C. I felt like a fat slug trying to run through quick sand.
