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.

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 

and go to the team names intensity and make a donation. All donations are tax deductable.

You are also welcome to join us on the challenge you can register at — with Lisa-Maree Stevens and Helen Booth.

  1. Good luck on the challenge it's always good to challenge yourself and better if it's for a good cause, I know you and your friends will achieve your goals stay safe.

  2. Thanks patrick it will be a tough call its the day after stampede but im sure we will be fine have done lots of training

  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 :)

  4. thank you so much . Its going to be a hard call backing up stampede with kakoda. But we have been training pretty hard have done the kakoda trek a few times and hopefully at least 3 more times before the day

  5. My Australian friend has told me about the Kokoda trial. Must be one of the ultimate tough mudder training grounds!

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…

I can now hold the Ski Rope Yeah Me

Haven't blogged for ages so thought time to put fingers to the key board and have a ramble.

I just came back from the most amazing holidays with my family every.

We have aways owned a boat and spent every holidays with the kiddies on the murray water skiing.  Everybody in our family have a ball but i was always too scared to try it. I tried once a few years ago and could not physically hold my own weight and keep hold of the rope. I can remember back then there were tears.. So from that day on watching from the side line like most things in my life was my entertainment.

Over christmas this year on our annual family skiing trip i decided to give it a crack. Surely by now i should be able to hold that friggin rope. Woo Hoo i did it and had so much fun.  Besides consuming litres of murray water through my mouth and nose i actually did it,  It felt fabulous out on the water you could not wipe the smile of my face.
There is absolutely no doubt that the kids will have to fight me from now o…

A pictures says 1000 words

As part of my prize in round one was to have profess photos taken at star shots. OMG my family and i had an amazing day and i just LOVE them and the new me.

But the pictures below are beautiful they mean more to me than just a photo.  Before my 12wbt journey began i was always the one behind the camera. The thought of me having my photo taken made me feel physically ill. Its sad really because i dont have many photos of me and my kids together growing up. So in a way i was being selfish because of my own self distruction and fears.  Out of all my 12wbt round one prizes this prize was by far my favourite. For the first time in my life i got a photo that i dont just like but i absolutely love them.

To think i was going to let this voucher expire. I think it expired on the 19th of December and i had them taken on the 16th. I can thank that to another 12wbter splasharama. I did water duty with Mary at the last finale workout and she asked me if i had them done. We started chatting and she…
