S#$T just got real!!

Well the penny dropped today.

My parents (ie. support crew) just booked in a Motorhome for 3 weeks in July – meaning this epic adventure is now most definitely going full steam ahead!

Time to prepare something and let my all of my friends now – and try and round up some much needed support!

Stay tuned!

Perth and the first week of May

The first week of May couldn’t have run smoother in terms of my training. A couple of long runs along Perth’s beautiful coastline were followed by my first organised running catch up w Stefan and Kylie from the Perth Trail Runners facebook group.

This run was an out and back from the start of the Bibbulmun track in Kalamunda to Mandaring Weir. Starting just after sunrise we took off down a technical single track into the valley and through some beautiful Australian bush. The different shades of blue mountain contours on the horizon were breathtaking and i promised myself to come back for a multi day hike with Ola and the kids one day.

April Roundup and Plan Bee

Training has been progressing well. The kilometers have been adding up with a healthy mix of hill and tempo training.

April just flew by with the Mt Mee Classic as my longest run while my longest week was the last one in April hitting 88kms total.

This being the first week of May, the goal is to average 100kms with a long run planned each week… or where this isn’t possible, two medium length back to backs.

For me, first and foremost the run is as much about the physical challenge as a chance strengthen the bond with my parents.

Choosing The Way

Planning to run from Brisbane to Sydney is one thing, working out the way to run is another.

I’ve been able to make contact with Andrew Hedgeman who’s introduced me to an app called Mapmyrun in which you can specify your start and end point and an option to avoid any motorways (which is both unappealing and luckily not permitted) – perfect!
