My Story

Feeling fit!

Big thankyou to my lovely family and walking team buddies who have encouraged me through the training so far. I'm feeling fit and ready to tackle the walk, but it has not been so straight forward. 

Last year I was thinking about doing this walk, but a kind chemotherapy nurse reminded me 30km is quite a way for anyone. Thankfully, I listened to her and had a chillout in the hills around Bendigo instead, then signed up for 12 weeks at the gym.

This year started more optimistically, with training in earnest up the local creek track and trips to the dreaded stairmaster machine at the gym. Easter was perhaps a bit too earnest when I got heatstroke climbing Mt Buffalo, Oops. Keeping on the flat and guzzling many bottles of water this week, we managed 22km and I finally feel we will make the gorgeous walk from Point Nepean to Blairgowries and back again.  

Thanks for all the support and please let me know whenever you feel like joining me for a bit of a walk, I'm always keen...
