Kaikoura Whale Run

Lisa’s Journey – A ‘Qwik’ how, what and why summary of 2018…

So, I was lucky to hear about Ray from Qwik Kiwi Coaching – well from Ray’s generous sponsorship of our annual school event, the Kaikoura Whale Run. The biggest thing that would have stopped me from joining Qwik Kiwi, would have…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 17: So, what’s next?

After a couple of days off post Whale Run (one self prescribed, which my ‘awesome coach‘ let me away with) and Monday being a stretching day anyway, lead me into a nice wee mixed week. Something new, a couple of…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 16: Whale Run 2018 – Done & Dusted

What a week. It was all go at school leading up to the Whale Run. The spring weather looked like it might just start to return for Saturday’s event – we had our eyes, fingers, arms & legs crossed! But…

Lisa’s Journey, Week 11: Challenge Accepted!

Lisa’s Journey, Week 10: Trust And To Believe In One’s Self…

Lisa’s Journey Week 9: Be Stronger than your Excuses!

Wooohooo!!! The new week brought with it some new hope! I feel like my body has accepted this ‘thing’ I’ve forced upon it, and I’ve moved into a new phase. After ‘Week 8’, where everything felt all too hard, this…
