High Five Friday #9

It’s been an exciting 2 weeks.

Kayla turned 8, we went on a mini holiday for Tough Mudder, and the kids have finished school for the year.


So lets do this.  Let’s high five this Friday!

Cause it is the last Friday before Christmas!

And the last High Five Friday (that I will be doing) for this year!

Five Pictures


.1. These Giant Wombats “Diprotodom’s” use to roam the area possibly 1.6 million years until their extinction 46,000 years ago.
You can find this replica at the Naracoote Caves, South Australia.

.2. This obelisk can be found in Robe, South Australia.  It use to store rockets.  Apparently you use to be able to go right up to it, but it’s now blocked off (fencing) as it’s too dangerous.

.3. Clayton Place is the holiday house we stayed at for Tough Mudder Adelaide.  It was so quiet, and was only a short walk away from lake Alexandrina.

.4. Paul & I after out muddy adventure.  Our RTG t-shirts will always be “our” mud race shirts now.

.5. While driving back home we stopped in Bordertown for a toilet stop.  In the park by the information centre they had these log seats.  This carving of a bear was on it.  How cool and cute is it!

Five Things

.1. I came across this video a few weeks ago.  I honestly don’t remember how I came across it.  But it will teach you an important lesson on Trust.

.2. You know I love to read. So when I came across this list of running books I was excited.  Sure there were books I had read, but there were a whole heap of books I haven’t read.
If you aren’t sure what to get a friend who is a runner, any one of these books will do.

.3. One of my goals this year was to do a handstand.  I’m still perfecting holding it, but this tutorial by Fitness Todd will totally help anyone to get to the Perfect Handstand.

.4. With 2014 coming to an end a lot of us will be reflecting on what they have or haven’t achieved for the year. Make 2015 your #IWillDo it year.

.5. I love Nia Shanks, she totally rocks! So when I got in my email about a new free workout she created I just HAD to share.

Seriously FREE! Lift Like a Girl Strength Training Program.

Having just finished her 3x3x3 training program, I am super excited to tackle this program in 2015.

What are you high fiving this week?
