FIGURING OUT THE FIFTIES.... SO THIS IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.......

Sunday, 24 January 2010

Weekend and lots of competitors heading your way......

Trained Chest and Abs Saturday morning and finished off with some hard out running on the tready....

I have been back on my favorite my favorite cardio machine the one and only cross trainer in my gym most mornings but since that was being used on Saturday I decided just to walk for 30 minutes...


I ended up walking for 3 minutes jogging at 9mph for 15mins then flat out at 11mph for 3 mins before winding slowly back down through the number to finish off a fabulous 30 minute run....


Its was a great feeling knowing that my body was back where it should be... I did have the odd twinge in my left hip on Saturday afternoon but I ran most of the waterfront this morning and the pain is gone.. Yay love being able to run again..


Spent the rest of Saturday mucking round the house and the island, bought some herb plants and potted them out which means I won't have to buy dry herbs for flavouring soon, found a fabulous Thai Basil which tastes like a cross between aniseed and basil - yum for my Kangaroo meat balls... nuom nuom nuom.


Took the Bitch Broom out for a little ride over to see Amanda, Neil and the kiddlies, it was great to have the time to catch up with them and see Jofus before he starts school on Wednesday and miss Lily has changed again and is sprouting up!


As much as I loved riding the broom it was hard work putting on long pants and sneakers in 32 degree heat, by the time I had got her out and warmed her up my Chuck Taylors were squelching with sweat yuk! I was riding in a singlet and that was soggy by the time I took off.... but it dried pretty quick in the warm summer air.. Hell riding really is bliss, just you and the noise of the bike... fabulous!!!


After the waterfront run this morning it was a quick pack up while Hubby mowed the lawns, which only take about 10 minutes on our little patch, the joys of big gardens!!! Then off to the beach at the end of our street for some laying around and swimming... no stingers, blue bottles or nasties today so it was like swimming in a warm bath... yum!


Got home in time for a quick shower, a meal, and then down to the gym for our usual Sunday group posing session. Wow the other girls are really coming along great, Hubby even had time to pick on me this week - damn! LOL I have decided I will have to sabotage Julie and tell her to do her double back bicep with her arms by her sides so she can't beat me, Renee I will leave alone cause she isn't in my class... but I'm watching her just in case LOL

It seems that there is yet another Bribie girl heading to see Kelli and is going to be on the stage this year and there is even a rumour that we will have a Bribie boy coming along to play as well.. Wow who would have thought... Bribie Island competition capital of Australia LOL

Well the meals are done, the uniforms are ironed, and I'm off to take the ZMA and hit the sack...
