Fitness Friday #44

Blurgh. Is anyone else feeling extremely tired with the daylight savings changeover?

I said something at work today about how much the changeover throws me out and everyone just looked at me like I was crazy! But I swear it takes me at least a week to recover after every changeover.




We had a nice weekend at the beach over the long weekend. It was so relaxing just to get out of Sydney for a few days and slow down. We spent lots of time at the beach playing in the water and the sand.




I made these Sensibliss Balls on Wednesday and they were good. So good in fact that they got the husband tick of approval. Pretty impressive for something thats healthy!




Saturday: rest

Sunday: trail run




Damo and I headed out early for a trail run along the coast while Matilda stayed at the beach house with my parents. We didn’t have a plan of how far or how long wanted to run for – we just ran. It was nice to be out for a run with no pressure just chatting and enjoying our surroundings. It ended up being 5km.

Monday: rest

Tuesday: fartlek run


I was feeling pretty average on Tuesday after a weekend of not a lot of exercise and eating not so health food. I decided to turn it around and focus on eating well and exercising regularly for the next week. So after sleeping in on Tuesday morning I was lucky enough to be able to get out for a run on Tuesday night. Who am I kidding – Damo practically dressed me, kicked me out the door and told me not to come back until I’d been for a run.

Apparently I’m all about the 5km now that marathon training is over. And because I’m crazy I decided I wanted to do some speedwork. Why? I couldn’t tell you. So 5km with 3 x 1 minute bursts it was.

Wednesday: swim & resistance training




A quick 1.2km swim in the morning and the twenty workout at lunchtime. So. Much. Sweat. And so sore on Thursday!

Thursday: rest

Friday: cycle class

As usual an awesome class which was mentally and physically challenging. What more can you ask for in a lunchtime class?

I haven’t really made any plans for the weekend – roughly a run and some other sort of workout but I’ll just play it by ear. I’m enjoying spending more time with my little family now that the pressure of training for the marathon is over.

How was your week?

Do you get thrown out by daylight savings changeover?

What new recipe have you tried lately?

Check Your Girls, Girls!

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so I thought it was a timely reminder for us all… A little while ago it was that time that all us ladies dread. I was due for my biennial (yes, I looked that word up – it means every 2 years) check up with the doctor. So I made […]


The Twenty Workout

I’m so excited to be getting back into some strength training now that the marathon journey is over. There’s been a joke between Damo and some of my friends that I’m going to join a cross fit box and become a fully fledged, paleo eating, olympic lifting, cross fitter.  I have no idea why they […]


What’s Your Weakest Link with Healthy Living

Today I’m linking up with The Fit Switch and The Fit Pepper for their Tuesday #dishthefit linkup. This week’s theme is ‘What’s your weakest link with healthy living? And how will you improve it this week?’ When it comes to healthy living everyone has a weak link. Some people have to really push themselves to […]


Fitness Friday #43

Hello long weekend! I am unbelievably excited for my three whole days off work (again!). We’ve decided last minute to head up to my parens beach house for a few nights so it’s going to be a mad rush to pack bags and get out the door when I get home. Apart from my vey […]
