ask.   me.   about.   half marathon.   goals.   fun runs.   recipes.   physiotherapy.   yoga.   motivation.   

23, Australian, studying physiotherapy, zero running to half-marathon in nine months, still figuring out this love-hate relationship with distance running
Note to self

Not preparing a proper lunch the night before will result in eating instant noodles and yoghurt.

My skinny lanky boyfriend has decided he wants to build up some muscle to help with his acrobatics class. He’s bought a 20kg weight set and I’m writing him a program - he only cares about his upper body but I’m sneaking in a few compound exercises for his legs too (because you can’t skip leg day). I’m looking forward to helping him start!

Post-cardio face - canceling out all the chocolate I’m about to eat over the next few days. My personal trainer’s idea of an Easter egg hunt was to run around and find the tennis balls hidden in the park and do 15 burpees for each ball. Worst Easter ever.

I walked the Tan with mum this morning during Run for the Kids. I saw Craig Mottram (going for a bit of a jog after his 15km run lol) and I also saw a guy with bib #1 (every fun runner’s dream?!). 35 minute power walk ticked off for this sunny Sunday.

I’ve unintentionally lost 2.5kg in the last six weeks. I put it down to a bit of stress and being on my feet constantly all day at the hospital - I only sit for about an hour between 8am and 4pm. Feeling less fit and more blah… biceps still going strong though!

I got up at stupid o’clock and massaged triathletes for six hours. Never been so hungry in my life!

There’s nothing like 12 hours of sleep and a boxing class to make you feel alive!

I got my marks for this placement block today and did really well. My supervisor strongly encouraged me to apply for a job at the hospital when I graduate and said she’s happy to be a reference for job applications too! I couldn’t stop smiling on the way home!

I’m pretty sure my homemade muesli is just an excuse to buy incredibly nice expensive yoghurt from the local market.
