KAKODA CHALLENGE MELBOURNE TRAINING


This morning i feel from the effort of yesterdays training. On the 28th of October a group of 4 of us our participating in the 30ks kakoda Challenge Over Mount Dandenong, So yesterday we did our first big training session or it.  We did 20ks of the 30k walk. During the challenge they give you  9 hours to compete the challenge and yesterday our fantastic team completed 20ks in just under 5 hours. Got to be happy with that.   Leg burn like i have never felt leg burn before. The hills were a killer but the weather was kind and this morning my legs are definately letting me now they are alive and didnt agree with the torture i pervailed on them yesterday.


But in the Kakoda spirit the 4 of us completed our mission for the day. I bit confused though lol helen and I wore our polars and she burnt 500 cal more than I what is that. All in all a great day with great friends.












A BIT ABOUT KAKODA CHALLENGE MELBOURNE
On sunday 28th of October 4 of us from Intensity Helen, Lisa, Mr Grey and myself are going to do the Kakoda Challenge in Mount Dandenong. In the Kokoda Spirit we will trek the tough 30km course through the Dandenong Ranges. Anybody wanting to join us please feel free to register.

Starting in Ferntree Gully National Park, the route encompasses the Kokoda Memorial Walk and tests your stamina on the 1000 steps.

To compete each team must raise $400. So with the help of Intensity and Julie we are hoping to raise beyond this amount. Any $$$ amount above $400 that we raise we will be donating to Heart Kids. So if you want to get on board you can sponsor us via julie.

The $400 funds raised go to supporting the Melbourne Kokoda Challenge Youth Program – assisting young people to reach their full potential.

So if you want to get onboard and help us raise money for Melbourne Youth Program and Heart Kids please do so. You can hop online and go to

  3. OMG Heidi you're doing Stampede the day before you are a machine...
    It was one of the reasons I didn't look into this further due to already signing up to Stampede when I discovered it. Good Luck not that you will need it as you train hard and have shown us again and again you are definitely capable of everything :)

Round 4 2013 Wrap Up Qland You Rock

Well on Friday we were all pumped for our weekend in Brisbane and what a weekend it was.  Queensland crew you ROCK. You guys and girls showed of your city and all its awesomeness.  I loved every minute of my weekend in Brissy. From the minute I arrived and one of your lovely member Tracey English picked three of us up at the airport and drove us straight to our hotel door. To the Margie workout which was so much fun. I think i found a new friend with Margie just sayin lol.

Your entrance into the finale was just sensational.  So much hard work was put into organising all those little bits. So well done Queensland Crew.

I loved Mishes workout on Saturday. The vibe in the room was awesome. A little brag now the best part for me was my personal best. Winning the planking mini challenge 11 min and 05 sec. (who does that) I actually learn from the mini challenge a really good lesson and this is that yourmind is so much stronger than you think. I had a time in my head to beat last years winn…

Weekend With The Girls

Two weeks ago i went to brisbane to a cow boy themed wedding with two of my special friends. What a hoot. But who would have imagined 6 months ago that i would ever pic a costume to wear like this one
Just amazing i still have to pinch myself now and then. When my girlfriend chose our outfits i said no way. But on the night i loved the outfit and cant believe i wore the same size as my skinny girlfriends. When i got home i started comparing my before and after pics with this one and this is what i came up with.
This weekend away was not only a normal weekend away for me. I got so much out of it. I found the new me and felt so confident something that i had not felt in a long time.  I would never imagined ever wearing anything like this. Thank you so much #michelle bridges.  i am now living and not just existing.
