WEEK 3 - Travel 30kms (without your car)
Ahhh what this weeks challenge going to be last week I did nothign and
lost nearly a whole kilo - Michelle Bridges is a genius, this week will
be easy too.
Ummmm...... **blink, blink**
**Forwards email to husband with the title 'OMG WTF'**
His reply 'WOW'. Matt is now super fit, he runs 30-50kms a week and likes it - madness...
If he thinks 30kms is WOW - what hope have I got?
Ok my plan, ride 10kms 3 times - how hard is it to ride 10kms anyway? YEAH RIGHT!!!
DAY 1 Can't find bike helmet (nice excuse, I'll just take the dog for a walk)
BANG 4km!!! WOO HOO I am a champion, I feel amazing, I did 4km with no
problems at all!! Dog passed out next to her water bowl, next time I
will take a hat and wear sunscreen.
Day 2 OK I found my helmet, I didn't really have to look too hard, it was on my handle bars...
BANG 6.5km!!! I am wasted, it was blowing a gale out there!! My legs are
shaky, and I sit on the bottom of the shower for 30 minutes when I get
home, but I proud because am killing it!! over my 5km per day average
DAY 3 Massive headache, stayed in bed - post exercise headaches such, did too much too soon Oh no I am behind schedule
DAY 4 Woo Hoo break in the rain come puppy let's go!
HUGE 5.3km Walk, Feeling awesome, just tired - dog is passed out on the kitchen floor
DAY 5 Post exercise head ache - not as bad as before but not interested in anything very much today
DAY 6 Beautiful day for a bike ride, cool temps and no wind.
15kms and I'm done!!! Oh wait... stupid app miscalculated - was only 10.5kms still need 3.7kms...
DAY 7 Complaining to the kids that I wont have time today to complete my
goal. They get together and decided that instead of me looking after
them, they would come with me and walk the dog so I can reach my goal. I
HAVE AMAZING KIDS!!!
We walk 3.2kms - I don't have the heart to tell them I missed my goal
anyway, so I get them to walk around the paddocks with me checking the
bee hives - 500mts DONE!!!
I was ecstatic about reaching the goal. What I thought was
insurmountable was only me putting blocks in my own way! Bring on Week
