Lisa’s Journey, Week 21: Next week… will be a better week!!!

This week is not about how much exercise I’ve done, because there’s been not much (said in a whisper, because I don’t even like saying it).  So there’s been one run to follow my Glenorcy run.  It was along the beautiful Lake Te Anau edge, as a storm brewed in the hills. We were all still fighting bugs and energy wasn’t abundant! Continue reading “Lisa’s Journey, Week 21: Next week… will be a better week!!!”

Lisa’s Journey, Week 19: Get your inspiration from… anywhere you can!!

Wooohoo, last week of school term!  I’m looking forward to turning the alarm off for two weeks! This weeks been a ‘meh’ week.  Friday came and it was time to take some deep breaths and clear my mind. So I jumped on the bike, and went up to our local lookout to soak up some beautiful scenery, along with 30 Japanese tourists and some Australians.

Lisa’s Journey, Week 18: I tripped, I fell. But I got back up!!

The week came and went with speed, as they seem to nowadays! I was excited to be heading up to do the Marina 2 Marina in Picton on Saturday. After all these years of wanting to do it, I’d finally knuckled down with exercise and was able too! The sun shone and the event didn’t disappoint. It was so well organised and Picton’s foreshore is a stunning wee setting. So top job to the organisers for an event well run. Continue reading “Lisa’s Journey, Week 18: I tripped, I fell.

Lisa’s Journey, Week 14’s focus has been the Four F’s…

#1 – FORTUNATE: Earlier in the week Ray kindly gave up his time to travel down and hold a seminar on ‘Training for a Triathlon’. Thank you so much Ray! I know you’re super busy, but it was very informative and the feedback has been really positive! The 7 Keys to Success were again helpful and I know I had some ahh-haaa moments, some of which need to be worked on!!!

Lisa’s Journey, Week 13: Don’t be in a rush to get to the destination. Just enjoy the journey.

The best part now is that I’m not daunted by the thought of going for a 40min run like I used to be, but in my head I’m much better than I actually am. Or maybe I think it is going to be easier than it is.  That’s me really badly trying to explain that prior to any run I’m eager, then I go out and I’m like ugh, this is harder than I imagined it was going to be. Then as soon as I’m finished I’m like yeeyah, bring on the next run.

Lisa’s Journey, Week 12: Heads, shoulders, KNEES and toes…

I’m going to put myself out on a limb and say… most,  if not all people who run, will probably experience knee pain (of some description)…  It’s kinda unavoidable, given the knee joint is the largest in the body, doing a heck of a lot of work! I’ve been reading more about the ‘knee’, and was quite shocked at some of the facts. The scariest one for me personally, was that the load distributed over the kneecaps can be up to five times your body weight, especially while climbing up and down stairs… Continue reading “Lisa’s Journey, Week 12: Heads, shoulders, KNEES and toes…”
