Normally I’m good at scheduling my posts, but with a hectic week, my high-five Friday post just didn’t happen.
Saturday rolled around, and well yeah, life got in the way.
So I thought Yeah Sunday, it’s not quite Friday, but it will do.
Yeah, that didn’t happen either.
It’s now Monday. Oops sorry, bout that. Let’s just pretend it is Friday then.
So let’s get right into it, shall we?
.1. & .2. The Lake you see is Lake Bellfield. This track is tunnel track. It’s part of the course for Run the Gap coming up in May.
Since I have a trail race coming up in March I need to get some more trail running in. So Tom dropped me off and I ran back into town. I ran all the hills which I’m proud of as those hills are hard work.
.3. & .4. This lake is lake Fyans.
We have been wanting to take the kids out on the boat for ages, but with unideal weather, we just haven’t been able to.
On this particular day we knew it was going to be hot, so but there was no wind. So we decided to head out onto the lake just after breakfast. The joy on the kid’s faces was just priceless.
The mountains you see in picture 3 are the Grampians. The ones in picture 4 are the black ranges.
.5. Kayla loves using the coffee machine, and whenever someone wants a coffee she jumps at the chance to make one. Just look at this creation, what a beauty! Tasted awesome too.
.1. If you didn’t already know I live in Australia. A friend of mine shared this article of 33 bizzare facts on Australia.
I can tell you the following:
- I have been swooped by a magpie
- I have lived in the Durack district
- I have travelled approx 80% of Highway 1
- I love Australian Beaches
- Rabbits are still a huge problem
- The burgers are better at Hungry Jacks (even though I haven’t eaten a burger from there in like 3 years)
- I loved eating it when it came out
.2. We are our own worst critics. So be kind to yourself, you never know who is listening.
.3. I’m currently listening to Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run. I haven’t finished it yet, but there are a lot of things I can relate to it. This is why I can totally relate to the article (and Scott’s book) Eat to Perform wrote about 10 things the best athletes do that you don’t.
.4. Ok another Buzzfeed article, but this one is about running. There were way too many that I could relate too – How much does running rule your life?
.5. Andrea of Happy Fit Mumma shared this on her High Five Friday post (here). As a runner, I of course had to save the article, and yes I do these exercises, and so you should too. Strength Training for Runners
Once again my apologies for a late high Friday.
What are you looking forward to this week?
