Training Amp Up


Not long to go now so it’s time to amp up the training.


Last week I did pretty well to get the training going again by putting in a session everyday.


Sunday – 3 hour walk

Monday – 1 hr walk, Abs at night

Tuesday – Stairs and beach walk, 1.5 hr

Wednesday – 1.5 hr gym session, legs focus

Thursday – 1 hour gym session, arms focus

Friday – 1.5 hr walk, 30 mins swim

Saturday – 1 hr, 1000 steps and bushwalk

Sunday – rest


Training on the beach is good for the glutes!


So this week it was time to come good on my promise of double up workouts everyday.


Monday saw me complete a 1.5 hr Stairs and beach walk in the morning. When I say stairs, I mean 45 steps x up and down 30 times – we’re talking in excess of 60 stairs. Then hill climbs.

Followed by 1 hr gym session with arms focus.


Plan for the week!


Tuesday – Legs workout + Abs PM

Wednesday – walk and swim AM, 1 hr gym PM

Thursday – stairs and beach walk 1.5 hrs, AM , core workout 1 hr PM

Friday – Walk and Swim, AM, 1 hr gym PM

Saturday – bushwalk.

Sunday – rest.


Let’s see how we go. It’s a big push in the last week in the lead up to the big climb- let’s hope it gives me that little edge extra!



(shame I couldn’t go snowboarding in the lead up, I think it would have been good training 😉 )


I will be taking on my biggest Adventure yet, Climbing Kilimanjaro for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW!  I will Climb Kilimanjaro in honour of my Grandpa who passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2008. I was in Africa when I found out and I said at the time I would one day do this for him, in his memory! We are raising money for Alzheimer’s Australia NSW to raise awareness and the necessary funds for prevention of the disease that affects so many. Dementia is the third leading cause of death in Australia, after heart disease and stroke. We must prevent and find a cure as it’s not a normal part of aging, and does affect 100,000’s of Australians.

Help me reach my $10.000 target by donating to my online fundraising page:
