A gold coin donation for boat shed sessions is appreciated as I pay rent on a per head
Heat Wave Fitness:
Well, we created these temperatures and now be have to learn to exercise in them! In
extreme temperatures, I will keep cardio to a minimum and attempt to keep sessions
in the shade. Please bring loads of water and wear swimmers if you would like a mid
session water cool down.
Heat wave Tuesdays: This is an unofficial session leaving 69 Bungaloe at 6:20, bush
run to 40 Baskets by 6:45 (with a few exercises along the way), swim 10 laps, and
return to 69 Bungaloe by 7:10. Please join me for it all or join me for a swim (this is
my secret training for the Old & Bold & Beautiful and the Balgowlah Bolt).
I am attempting a new year of punctuality! How long this will last, I
cannot imagine, however I am trying to begin each session on time. When we
finish is anyone’s guess.
I am loving the social culture we have created! There are a few of us however who are
more serious about creating chocolate eating credits from our sessions. If this is you, please
make sure you are close to the exercise action and if you find that your exercise is moving more
into the muscles of your jaw, if would be much appreciated if you could move to the side/back of the group.
Upcoming local races:
Bridge to beach paddle 11 km February 26
Balgowlah Bolt (new event) 2.75/5.3 km March 19
Spartan 7/15 km May 6/7
Manly Fun Run 5/10 km May 21
Mini Mos Marathon 5/10 km June 18
Please let me know if you are interested in any of the above.
Other Chocolatey Adventures :
I am investigating a 3 day mini paddling/hiking budget trip to Tasmania in mid May:
Arrive Friday, Mona, lunch and drive to Freixinet
Saturday: 6 hour hike around wine glass bay etc
Sunday morning: Kayak the bay, drive to Hobart and evening return to Sydney
It’s a germ of an idea but let me know if it tickles your fancy!
Current liquifying temperatures not very condusive to any solid chocolate creations!
Stay tuned, I will set a date when the mercury drops.
That’s all for now I think! Please let me know if you have any questions/comments/ ideas/concepts etc.
