My Story

Kickboxing ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘

Did my first Kickboxing class today, loved it. Absolutely buggered, but such a good work out ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ช

Stair Day! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

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 ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ˜ but what could it be? ๐Ÿ™Š

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 :)

Training! Learning!

After my last 30km walk I noticed my big toes became quiet bruised๐Ÿ™ˆ 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 ๐Ÿ™„ , hopefully this will help eleviate the problem ๐Ÿ˜Š. 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! ๐Ÿ‘

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.ย 

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.ย 

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.ย 

I will keep you updated on my journey!ย 

Thank you so much toย those that have donated! ๐Ÿ˜Š
