Did my first Kickboxing class today, loved it. Absolutely buggered, but such a good work out 😊💪
Stair Day! 🙈
Hit Kings Park today with my Daughter Brooke and went to the DNA tower (Jacobs ladder way too busy). 100 stairs up, completed 4 times with a walk inbetween. It was a great workout and ease into stair work, will increase the amount each time. Excited to start something new next week 😏💪😝 but what could it be? 🙊
Bibbulmun track from Mundaring Weir Hotel to South Ledge & return.
Did around a 6km hike today. Perfect weather! A fair bit of elevation and stairs which was challenging but good to build up the leg muscles :)
After my last 30km walk I noticed my big toes became quiet bruised🙈 I felt my feet swelling quite a bit, I had worked in quite a few stair climbs too, so not sure if this contributed. I did another 15km on the weekend just wearing sneakers, they were still abit sore, and the bruising appeared worse the next day. I'm thinking of going up a size in my hiking boots 🙄 , hopefully this will help eleviate the problem 😊. Other than this issue everything else is going great! I have a hike in a few weeks up at Mundaring that I'm looking forward too! 👍
Joining the team!
While recently visiting my best friend Kristy in Melbourne, she mentioned to me about the Coastrek and asked if I would be interested, I didn't hesitate to say absolutely! Within a week I had booked my flights and starting training.
60km in one day, trekking through National Parks, Beach sand and encountering quite a few stairs sounds like a tough day, but when it's for such an amazing cause it is 100% worth it.
Mental health has effected many people close to me, not everyone has the support to get them through it, Beyond Blue is there for those people.
I will keep you updated on my journey!
Thank you so much to those that have donated! 😊
