Goal Setting + Gold Coast Airport Marathon

gcam15.1

I’m nursing a bit of a hangover today guys. Worse than that, I’m sitting at Coolangatta Airport nursing a hangover. Not exactly the best place to be when you’re feeling like what you actually need is a cuddle, 5L of water and an extra 10 hours sleep. But hey, at least I’ve had an excellent weekend. [Read more…]

RUNCOLLECTIVE1

There are less than six weeks left until the City2Surf, aka the mostly hotly anticipated event on my sporting calendar. I’ve been running it since my second year at uni (which was longer ago than I care to remember) and I honestly do look forward to it more than is probably normal. [Read more…]

the HELLO MONDAY workout

hello monday
Monday…. again. Now I don’t know what kind of evil sorcery is at work here, but I’m pretty sure Mondays are rolling around faster and faster every week. This week it could have something to do with the fact that I had my ma in town visiting. Our weekend was pretty jam-packed…. mainly filled with eating and drinking, but I did force her to work out with me both days so I’m not feeling too guilty. Or guilty at all if I’m completely honest with you.  [Read more…]

Climb a 6-foot fence because you were locked out of your apartment? (yep, that happened this week). [Read more…]

Oh my god this cold weather is KILLING ME. Over the weekend I finally (begrudgingly) acknowledged the fact that summer is over with a little winter-centric shopping spree… given my wardrobe up until now has pretty much consisted of singlets and shorts this was not so much an indulgence as a necessity though, and I can now say with a little more confidence that I think I’ll survive ’til spring.

Meditation is one of those things that I’ve always put in the too-hard basket, alongside learning to sew a button and use my pressure cooker. But it turns out meditation is really not that difficult at all. Actually neither is the pressure cooker… but I’m still not great on the sewing a button front. [Read more…]

It’s almost the weekend. Which means it’s time to let your hair down, right? Right! Well, to a certain extent anyway.
