High Five Friday #13 on a Monday… opps

Normally I’m good at scheduling my posts, but with a hetic week, my high five Friday post, just didn’t happen.

Saturday rolled around, and well yeah, life got in the way.

So I thought Yeah Sunday, it’s not quite Friday, but it will do.

Yeah, that didn’t happen either.

It’s now Monday.  Opps sorry bout that. Lets just pretend it is Friday then.

So lets get right into it shall we.

Five Pictures

hhf13
.1. & .2. 
The Lake you see is Lake Bellfield.  This track is tunnel track.  It’s part of the course for Run the Gap coming up in May.

Since I have a trail race coming up in March I need to get some more trail running in.  So Tom dropped me off and I ran back into town.  I ran all the hills which I’m proud of as those hills are hard work.

Keiran told me when we were out running that time I took a stack that this track is the perfect track to train on in preparation for the Roller Coaster Run next month.

.3. & .4. This lake is lake Fyans.

We have been wanting to take the kids out on the boat for ages, but with unideal weather we just haven’t been able too.

This particular day we knew it was going to be hot, so but there was no wind.  So we decided to head out onto the lake just after breakfast.  The joy on the kids faces was just priceless.

The mountains you see in picture 3 are the Grampians.  The ones in picture 4 are the black ranges.

.5. Kayla loves using the coffee machine, and whenever someone wants a coffee she’s jumps at the chance to make one.  Just look at this creation, what a beauty! Tasted awesome too.

Five Things

.1. If you didn’t already know I live in Australia.  A friend of mind shared this article of 33 bizzare facts on Australia.

I can tell you the following:

  • I have been swooped by a magpie
  • I have lived in the Durack district
  • I have travelled approx 80% of Highway 1
  • I love Australian Beaches
  • Rabbits are still are huge problem
  • The burgers are better at Hungry Jacks (even though I haven’t eaten a burger from there in like 3 years)
  • I loved eat it when it came out

If I had to describe Australia the Seekers round it up in I Am Australian, Rai Thislewaite samples part of the song in this version, which describes our great land too.

.2. We are our own worst critic.  So be kind to yourself, you never know who is listening.

.3. I’m currently listening to Scott Jurek’s Eat & Run.  I haven’t finished it yet, but there are a lot of things I can relate to it.  Which is why I can totally relate to the article (and Scott’s book) Eat to Perform wrote about 10 things the best athlete’s do that you don’t.

.4. Ok another buzzfeed article, but this one is about running.  There were way too many that I could relate too – How much does running rule your life?

.5. Andrea of Happy Fit Mumma shared this on her High Five Friday post (here).  As a runner I of coursed had to save the article, and yes I do these exercises, and so you should too. Strength Training for Runners


Once again my apologies for a late high Friday.

What are you looking forward to this week?
