After 18 days of running on average about 60km per day from Brisbane to Sydney!

Damian King (my mate of 40 odd years) crossed the finish line in Sydney last Sunday the 18th of August.

After 1000km of jogging every step of the way (no kickbiking or walking!) and braving crazy looking blisters on the verge of debilitating infection, strained muscles around his ribs making it impossible to take a proper breath at one stage, knees threatening to pack it in completely (like mine did), massive hill climbs testing aerobic function, hard hot roads and trucks whizzing by with in inches, he could finally sit down and rest and know that he didn’t have get up the next morning at 5.00am to face the music as he had done every day for the past 18.

He did extremely well to say the least. There aren’t enough superlatives to describe it. As someone who joined him at various stages of the run I can affirm that it was a ridiculously hard challenge. I did about 138km in total with him but no two days in a row simply because my body said no. If you felt so inclined to donate (I know I did out of pure respect) to the cause he ran for, I know he would be eternally grateful as will the recipients.

p.s. I am thinking of launching a ‘guaranteed weight loss’ program based on what he did. If you have a spare 18 days and don’t mind jogging then you too can lose 8kg! Guaranteed!! Not sure how this one will go though 🙂

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
