Wet suits are sexy!
Woke up at 5:15am this morning to go for a bike ride with my friend Ed. Have never ridden this loop before… mostly cause i’ve never really been into road riding haha but it was lovely! Pretty nice change to be able to average 40km an hour for more than 200 metres with only a few small hills.
To get anywhere out of Jindabyne (for flat road) you still have to climb a few pretty large hills haha
anyway and then because I haven’t posted one in way super long - here is my breakfast. Because it is magical.
Coffee, avacado, slightly burnt omelette (a piece of salami.. cause I feel like it okay?) AND FIGS?! get outta town!
I look like such a goober when I ride haha
I know these are from ages ago but the organisers only just got their shit together and released the results (which were wrong) along with the photos… so you know I had to put them here!
Oh yeah, and that 75km race I did last weekend? Well I ended up winning even with a flat! booyah.
Thought I had work today, apparently not. So what better way to spend 3 hours than an 80km road ride to Charlotte Pass? (Garmin died just as I got to half way so that strava bit is from my phone)
Oh hey it’s me!
Just marshalling for round 3 of the downhill in Thredbo today. These kids are psycho haha but I scored a hat!
And tomorrow I’m racing a 75km mtb race. Pretty excited!
1) I went for a 10km run yesterday and kept freaking out cause I thought I heard snakes rustling in the bushes (and to be fair they probably actually WERE snakes)
2) did backyard bootcamp with the girls this morning. 10 exercises, as many reps as you could in 50 seconds with a 10 second break in between x 2 and then a 12 minute ab workout. The sunrise was pretty beautiful! It’s red cause of all the bush fires around.
3) I’m currently at work pressing pillow cases with a cup of tea and listening to tunes from my iPod. ( yeah I’m doing a laundry job with an honours degree.. What of it?) Going for a mtb this arvo.
Life is pretty good y’all!
19 km later in 1:50 I am a pretty happy, sweaty chappy!
Drove to Canberra on Friday arvo (there was a bush fire somewhere near because it’s been outrageously hot) to race in the 50km duo classic on Saturday.
Don’t know what happened but I felt pretty shit the first lap, my legs felt like cement. Second lap was better, saw a snake on the track, went through a tree to avoid it haha and we ended up coming 7th in the mixed pairs! Which ain’t so bad :)
Went for a 150km bike ride the other day with the boys.Was excellent!
Epic ride to Valentines hut today. Only 40km but took a good 6 hours, 1200 metres of elevation, altitude effecting our riding and one somersaulting stack (and reopened my scab.. Bugger) but so so beautiful! Will be running out here very soon :)
Guys! I went for a run yesterday! and a good one at that!
and I didn’t die. It was actually pretty great. Although my calves are sore this morning but there was a lot of incline. But I went to bring a friend day at bootcamp (because I didn’t enroll this month [shocking, I know]) and my arms are now more sore than my legs haha
So i’m getting back into the running thing. I really need to if I’m going to tackle this 75km in only a couple of months.
Also - today i’m moving to Jindabyne for a few months. Going to train and in the midst of getting a job. It’s gonna be gooood!
Full moon ride up to the top of Mt Kosciusko. Was amazing!
Great blog! You made me smile this morning! You are truly inspirational! My goal is to be more like you and inspire more female to ride BMX as well! Ride on & be well! -WW
Ah thank you! BMX is so much fun! Will definitely go back to do it again!
So you mainly ride BMX then? I’m just sort of getting into riding but seem to be embracing all forms atm haha
Hope you’re well too :)
