I’ve actually not got too much to report training wise. The last week was a hike and a bike. Yip that was it! Seems even worse now, having just typed it. It’s like saying it out loud. So, I was just putting this event down to the experience since the training for it had eased off.
I had a message from Ray who’d obviously seen a workout and said I looked like I was walking up in the clouds. I wasn’t sure what he meant until I saw the picture. Haha nothing gets past him! Continue reading “Lisa’s Journey, Week 26: Head in the clouds…”
I am wondering if I’m actually going to be able to do this Triathlon only because I’ve not run in a while now. Two weeks to the day actually (feels like a month). All I can say is that I’m glad it is a smaller, more fun one! Maybe my legs will be like, “cool, I’m rested from not running so much, so lets do this” and my heel won’t hurt at all. Apparently I’ll be fine, Ray said, so who am I to argue?

I’ve been on the bike this week, because of my foot. So I’ve been going to places I haven’t biked in a while. I’ve been pleasantly surprised when noticing progress!

I’ve been grumpy, had a breakout and a freakout! Was a ‘no fly zone’ for a bit, but in particular this past week… ugh, which is hard to admit (but I’m keeping it honest). And sometimes for the longest time you can hold your shit together and other times you can’t. But that’s okay. The best part about all this is I look to run or bike to escape ones self! Double thumbs up!
Sometimes it just feels good to sweat it out!!! Fitness wise, it HAS been a better week!! (Large sigh of relief). After not having done a lot, I was feeling better and my first bike ride felt great. It was the fastest time for that particular block and I felt so much better in myself! Like, SO MUCH BETTER!

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!

What a week! Luckily I went for eight whole minutes and 33 seconds longer on my midweek bike ride, because I’ve done sweet f.a. since.
I had a sick kid come home from school camp, and just when it looked like she might start to humanise, down went the other one.

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.

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. But I got back up!!”
