  1. Spent the morning walking around the top of Mount Coot Tha with some wonderful views over Brisbane. Simply stunning with such different and varied wildlife! Then down in the Botanical Gardens, I must have walked for about 3 hours in total before I got into work. So beautiful. then into the Planetarium because Space!
  2. Did a 20 minute yoga routine this morning and finished off my kangaroo sausages (because what else are you going to eat in Australia! Had them water fried and with sugar snaps, carrots and rice/lettuce rolls. Very yum, very full and with apple to finish. And copious amounts of tea of course.
  3. A massive night for me last night. I have been in Australia, half way around the world from my home, the furthest I have ever travelled and all for work. I have realised a dream of working professionally in another country and I have only just realised this! I've been so engrossed in the job; the design, the realisation of it, operating the show and making sure it can transfer to Edinburgh that I haven't yet sat and let myself take note of the fact that I am in AUSTRALIA getting paid to work! I am so freaking over the moon! I can't honestly describe what I'm feeling.
  4. Well...... It's been a while..... But I always find my way back it seems. Many things have changed since I last posted here. My workouts changed and I was posting on my roller derby fitness page rather than here for a bit. My weights were; - Deadlifts x 30 @ 55kg - Bent Over Rows x 30 @ 45kg - Chest Press x 30 @ 54kg - Narrow Grip Pull Downs x 30 @ 45kg and that was great alongside my bodyweight squats, press ups and crunches as well as bike machine cardio. I didn't take a full-on hiatus till ab
  5. Yus! I'm out of one of my overdrafts! And i did it the hard way, a standing order each month into that account to pay off the overdraft but man does it feel good to see the CR sign after the balance now! No more interest payments and a spare bit of cash now I don't have to put as much away each month! So grateful to Nerd Fitness for getting my bum in gear to get this done!
  6. Hi Terror! So cool, there seem to be more and more of us derby peeps popping up on here Huge congrats on making you A team! That's fantastic!!
  7. To the Finish! Walking: 159 miles - Achieved ( Even though the weather got progressively worse walking is a wonderful to keep my head clear. Workouts 24 Achieved (A) workouts for the win! Keeping the body moving during the hard times helps those endorphins flow! Moving Around Achieved (A) Getting out of the chair to stretch has made me feel less stiff and scrunched up. Reading Achieved (A) Love reading. Side Quest Achieved! Made sure I chose the food that would keep my body working properly rather than junk food. Just because I was away from home does not mean my fitness is comprom
  8. Despite my failure to update my logs I did complete my challenge! After the mini-test of the week and a half away on tour I was far to mentally and emotionally drained to do anything even vaguely sociable outside of roller derby training. Physically I did everything I set out to do. I ate well and exercised over the tour dates. I exercised at home. I read everyday and walked when I could but I didn't see anyone and I didn't talk to anyone that didn't live with me or train with me. Work life was awful. Then I had a holiday which has brought me back to myself. And I also realised that my mu
  9. Me and my partner did the Partonus 5k a while ago. We'd been using the excercise bike rather than run outside and this event got us setting aside an evening and doing a run for the first time in months. Felt so good to run outside! Plus our medals turned up this week! They are huge! And so beautiful I'll post a pic later on and show you all.
  10. I know what you mean, there would be nothing cooler than a bunch of wizards running around in robes! Ravenclaws FTW!!!
  11. Week 2 Day 1 I saw my first sign to the underground today. All the ones in the inner city have been blocked up or collapsed but here, towards the edge, some are still open. The scavengers tend not to use them, there is nothing down there or any value to them and it should provide me safe passage to the suburbs. I've been lucky in my time on this quest. The inner city was once crawling with scavengers, ravenous for the treaures held in what were once high streets. In the past few years I've noticed less and less of them. They have spread out towards the houses of the city that have not yet be
  12. Week 1 Day 7 I was awoken by a unnatural rustling sound close by. Carefully peering through the unearthed roots of the trees I was sheltering behind I saw a gang of scavengers were roaming through the dried leaf litter and plastic rubbish. They did not look like they were looking for anything but I stayed quiet and hidden none-the-less. I waited a good hour or so after they left my field of vision to make sure I was alone before I pulled on my skates and made for the other park exit. To say I do not know these streets I made good headway today, more than I was expecting. The streets were
  13. I thought this might be of interest to some running Rebels and some Rebels who are thinking about starting running: Hogwarts Running Club I'm not a big runner (getting honked at is not fun) but I do enjoy a good event, a cool medal and raising money for good causes! The sign up fees go to charity and they run it through an honour system. You pay to sign up for an event and can complete the distance whenever you like before the expiry date, even splitting it across multiple stints or covering it in someone else's event. You even get a personalised Hogwarts bib which is kinda neat. Plus
  14. Week 1 Day 6 Today I crossed from the known to unknown. This is the furthest I have ever been from the place I used to call home. Even those week long explorations I used to take when annoyed with my mentor or in need of solitude didn't take me this far out. My progress from here on in needs to be cautious if I am to avoid other scavengers and yet I need to press on to get to the coast on time. I can feel the icy edge to the wind more keenly now. Despite the new edge of insecurity in an area of the city I do not know I have had a wonderfully restful day. Today I have appreciated my solitude
  15. Week 1 Day 5 I guess I slept well. It seemed to pass too quickly for me to get as much rest as I needed. I was fortunate indeed to find the sheltered spot, when I awoke I saw a scavenger hovering over where I lay with it's back to me. It had not seen me that much was clear, I still had my gear and I was unscathed but it was enough to send a shiver down my spine. Resources are so rare and greed so rampant that to attract any unwanted attention can be, at best, a sprint for safety and at worst a race for your life. Some of the older scavengers have learned restraint and remember civilisation a
