The Christmas/New Year holidays were quite hectic for me this year. But I’m pleased to say that my exercise program didn’t suffer too much. If there is anything I would have liked to do, it would have been to ride a bit further each day. But most days I managed close to or over 50k, […]
Today marks 102 days until my friend Nadine and I walk 100ks from Melbourne to Sorrento. The serious training is now full on.
We are now up to Week 7 in Round 3, 2012 of the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation. So far it has been a very successful round for me, even though the past two weeks in the lead up to and during the Christmas break could not be described as successful. At the end […]
