The toughest thing I’ve overcome

I was hit by a car cycling in London by a car that ran a red light. I flipped over the car and landed on the back of my head and back. I lost a lot of confidence for road cycling but I came back. and now I'm stronger.

Well, that was a weekend full of 'new mum' personal bests.

I've quite enjoyed having a 'reset' on PBs. Although I'm very much the same person, there's a lot that has changed. I'm no longer in control of how many hours sleep I will get, my body is different, my family balance is different, my work life is different and therefore my training program is 'just different'.

The fine art of fitting everything in and knowing that there's a little person to come home to everyday that watches my every move! (And, what a welcome home committee it is!)


Woohoo Mama! Keep on going.  I am right there with you, 9 weeks to Ironman Texas & two littles waiting at home!

Rain, hail or shine! Checking out the new @GC50 Run Festival, GC 30 course in preparation for the new May event.

We were a tad excited about this new event on the Gold Coast.  It's the ideal stepping stone distance between half-marathon and marathon distances. #thelastlongrun 

Have a great rest of your weekend. 


Look at all that energy @Natalie Arnold - firing team right there!

I had the best time cheering my friends on in the Burleigh Swim Run event on Tuesday. The adrenaline that you get from being on the start line!

I'm currently mid training for @ironmanaus in Port Macquarie. It will be my first endurance race back as a first time Mum and I can't wait.  I started with @parkrun and slowly worked my way up into some training again determined to listen to my body and have a positive attitude with all of my training. It feels different this time, perhaps it's the excitement of knowing my son will be at the finish line. Perhaps it is because I've got a few extra cards to balance this time round and I'm not as hard on myself as I used to be. I'm all about the journey and so far it's been a positive one.

Excited to hear what others have their mind set on this year? Consistent fitness activity, events or longer term aspirations?

A beautiful Saturday ride out towards the cane fields. How lucky we are to live so close to incredible scenery.

Back to back weekend 100km rides, 3km swims and 20km runs! Ironman training well and truly in progress 😱


Training and solitude, and nature, ahhhh, so good @Natalie Arnold

Our Sunday long run has turned into a jumping contest.

You have to have fun when you’re running 20kms.

Longest run post bubs 😊



Love the shot, what energy!

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

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