The fitness buzz in Noosa is real. We did an enjoyable, albeit slow, short family loop of the National Park, which was magic! Kids did almost the whole 6km without needing a piggy back... @Sarah Archer’s back loosened up enough to manage, what a great way to get some healthy time together. #noosa #noosanationalpark

My best effort this year, so far, is 19,600 steps of 'intentional walking' which is nothing in comparison to most people, but for me, that was a good day. I'd like to plan to walk all day though, and perhaps that's one of the things I could do during my Fly Into July month!

Finally got my shoes on and got some walking in. @Paul Caneda you’d be waaaaay ahead of me on the K count now! Burleigh Headland, I’ve never gone up to the lookout, what a sight. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

update

A steamy 5km for me, just cramming some movement in before my days takes over! Feels damn good to move, that’s for sure. 

update

For 30 days now, I have been starting my day like this. Early morning walk and jog with my wife.

I am now 25% into my target of 1,000 kilometers. 😊

@Paul Caneda you need to slow down! Awesome effort mate

Trying to keep myself motivated by keeping track of mini wins. Having the highest average of uphill walking/jogging this week equivalent to 15 floors per day.



update

I found 134 steps hiding in the trees, and my legs hate me for it!

Starting the day early to beat the heat and the people that ensue. Looking good, Mother Nature!

Thank you, @Cecilia Blakeley ... you're spot on, these are all between The Gap and Watsons Bay. Great place for a run with plenty of steps!

A very broken day of walking today. It started with an early exit on my first venture into the Border Trails. An adult Eastern Brown snake will do that! I then went back to a familiar and slightly less risky beach path... and have now just finished my first night walk. I opted for an area that I wouldn’t expect to see any groups of kids on, and I was right. Actually ended up clocking some k’s today! 

update

For me to average 12k steps or 9Kms a day, I walk/jog twice a day. One early in the morning and then another one in the evening.

This is how it looks like in the night. Good time to also relax my mind and reflect on what I am grateful for today.

I managed to still do my early morning routine of walk/jog despite not feeling too well. 

I'm trying to build a mindset that my body should listen to me and not the other way around.

Love having parkrun back in our local community, even better to enjoy it with the family. This is my Dad β˜ΊοΈ, I ran back to support him after I finished (and yes, I’m running with a zooper dooper in hand πŸ™ˆ).

What’s your favourite parkrun? I’m hoping to experience a few more this year.

update

Cracking start to the day, nice to get out and stretch the legs and incorporate a call with @Damien Dau and @Trent Allan while at it! 

update

This habit I’m developing is one of my best yet. At this rate I’ll clock up my 1,000km goal for 2022 in no time! #strictlywalking #musing

I wish we have places like that here and all the other awesome places you go to! 
You inspire me to exceed my goals! Cheers to you Troy!

Troy Archer . 1 month ago

It's a great day to reinforce a healthy habit! 
4k of walking/jogging which includes running uphill equivalent to 7 stories. 

The average distance covered this week has improved from 7,500 steps last week to 14,000 (10 kms) so far this week. 

@Troy Archer - thanks for inspiring me as well with your posts! 


update

I needed running water over rocks, bird sounds and light breaking through trees, so I went and got it, and I’m bloody thankful for it. Today’s walk was a short one, but my favourite this month so far!

To walk/jog early morning daily
To walk/jog at least 5 kms daily

I’m not one for NY’s resolutions, but I’m a sucker for goals! So I’ve committed myself to clocking 1,000kms of walking this year. That might sound like a small goal for most but for me, not so much. Expect to see plenty of photos of the random stuff I encounter along the way, and I’ll be sharing my podcast secrets with you too... Today I’m learning about Roswell! Super excited about this goal, and about 2021 in general! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Introducing #RUNAROUNDTHEWORLDWITHKEV

WHAT: This New Year’s Eve, we are hosting our most ambitious community challenge ever. It’s so ambitious we have no idea if it’s possible and there is a strong possibility we could fail, but if we don’t try we’ll never know.


Here goes: The circumference of the earth is 24,901 miles and we want to run around it with you, our community, in one day*.

HOW: If we can get 1,000 of you to enter then we will all have to run/walk on average 24.9 miles each – almost a marathon. If we can get 2,000 of you then the average distance per runner becomes a much more manageable 12.45 miles. You get the gist.

WHEN: *The challenge begins when the first place on earth starts New Year’s Eve (Samoa) and ends when the last place on earth hits the New Year (Baker Islands in the Pacific). In GMT, this is 10:00 on Wednesday 30th December until 12:00 on Friday 1st January. We have 50 hours to cover 24,901 miles!

WHY: Kevin Webber is a great friend of ours. Last October, he took on and smashed Ultra X Jordan. He is a wonderful man and a constant beacon of light. He is also a terminal prostate cancer patient. December 21st is Kevin’s 365th consecutive day running which started with the Ultra X #holiday100 challenge last year. The run with Kev challenge gives everyone the opportunity to end one year and start another with a new goal that will take you on an amazing journey.

The challenge costs just Β£5 and all of the proceeds will go to the charity Prostate Cancer UK. If you’re keen to join us then we will need every ounce of your support to make this dream a reality

PLEASE help us make this happen by registering via this link - ultra-x.co/runaroundtheworldwithkev/
