100miles in the book by 11:30am.....Start in the dark with John Brame for 2hrs and change.....through the city up to โ€œAli Paliโ€ 180........only the English will get that. Interesting arriving at the top to see naked people lying out together for some โ€œArt thingโ€ - John did the video work?
Than picking up Marsha for a trio out to Windsor (she needed her Cinnamon Bun!!) than back with a tail wind to London....great people and good miles in the bank

Loved it today....but why does it look like you were sleeping when there were cinnamon buns?!! Hopefully you won't get lost next time. ๐Ÿ˜†

After a big day of training.....there is a need to relax and have a drink.....REHYDRATION

Throwing it back to a time of pre COVID where social distancing and masks wasnโ€™t mandatory in Melbourne Victoria.

Due to the stage 4 restrictions currently in place, football has been cancelled.

Itโ€™s been difficult trying to find ways to stay fit and active without training as a team

Canโ€™t wait to get back into training and the upcoming season!

Feeling your pain Perry Lambropoulos , it's a crazy time to experience that's for sure. Here's hoping that restrictions ease real soon for Victoria.

RUOK? Today is an important day. A reminder that you, or someone you love, might need support. We all know that being active, being mindful and being surrounded by positive thinking is critical to our quality of life, but some people might need a little helping hand before they can find their quality of life. RUOK is a wonderful platform that we wished no one needed, but unfortunately it is needed. Stay Well, school yourself, and potentially, you'll save a life... www.ruok.org.au/

Thanks ActivePlace human connection is so important. We all need to stop and have actual conversations with each other.

I would love to report back on the amazing gym session I completed this morning, with a crazy number of kettle bell swings, pushing, and kipping pull ups. The truth is though I didn't get to the gym. My body didn't feel up to it and I could just feel both my mind and my body needing a little rest, so that's what I did.

The older I get the better I am at listening to myself and knowing what I really need, and although a lot of this is intuition my Oura ring sure helps a little as well.

Not every day we're at our best, that is simply impossible and sometimes it's OK to admit this and just do your best tomorrow.

One of the good things that came out from trying to go vegan is I was forced to look for a milk alternative as I love my morning cafe latte.
As I have discovered, Almond Milk is way better and so here is my own homemade all-natural almond milk.

Best way to savor a cup of cafe latte!

I'm here in ActivePlace because everybody is about moving forward!

So I've decided to set myself a goal to run every day for a whole year...that's every single day for 365 days in aid of sponsoring the Shepherd Centre, Wollongong, an organisation very close to our family...we have been extremely fortunate to have had the support of the guys at the The Shepherd Centre for our daughter Indiana over the last year. Indi was born with profound bi-lateral hearing loss in both ears - Not sure what we would have done without them.

Over the last 31 days I've been successful in running daily so am now confident, ready and highly motivated to go live and push on for the next 11 months!

I'll be looking to run 3900km over the year...which is the equivalent of running Sydney to Perth at an average of 10.7km/day.

Follow me daily on Instagram, Strava & Garmin Connect to see how I'm tracking.
If you would like to sponsor me $1/day over the course of the year, with all proceeds going to the Shepherd Centre via my Go Fund Me page. Any support would be incredibly appreciated!!โœŒ๏ธ

Regardless of restrictions, actively pause your worry, the basic building blocks for wellness are already within you.

A beautiful morning in Sydney with blue skies and some slightly warmer weather. Great opportunity for a walk, some exercise and a coffee or two โ˜•

About two years ago my brother purchased a device called a Back Buddy for me, knowing how much physical exercise I did and how sore my muscles often were.

I have loved and used this product so much that when I was in the US last year with my girlfriend Cecilia Blakeley I purchased a travel size one so I could use it while overseas and also fit it in my bag.

It's basically a personal massage device; it's shaped so that using your hands you can target almost all the pressure points on your body, no matter where they are.

I can highly recommend one of these for anyone that pushes and demands a lot from their body. It will help you in many ways in including reducing future injuries. I still go and get massages, but as long as I am using this for at least 5 minutes each day, I don't need to go at anywhere near the rate I used to.

The place where I spend 20 minutes every morning at the perfect temperature of 110 degrees. Sweating is such a healthy thing to do is the sauna is one of the best places to do it. The health benefits for me are not just physical, it's an important part of my mental health and ensuring I can do each day what I'm required to do.

Trent Allan have you tried infrared saunas?

Damien . 3 weeks ago

No I haven't, but there is no scientific research to prove they are any better for you. It's all about sweating, and both regular and infrared saunas make you sweat. Rhonda Patrick has done a ton of research on saunas, you should check out her work.

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" it's one the popular statement and correct too.

Apple is a good antioxidant fruit, which keep our body clean internally and rich with fibre + vitamins + minerals. It's also good for your pre workout meal and I recommend to all. ๐Ÿ™‚
