I'M THE PRINCESS OF MT COOT-THA!
Well, for today I felt like it at least! :)
I did my Week 3 challenge! I climbed the Kokoda track on Mt Coot-tha, twice in a row! :)
I have also been very well looked after when I've done it with QLD crew - we've had PT's / trainers, warm ups/downs, people checking on us the whole way, someone at the front, middle and back....the first time I did it we had cut up oranges waiting for us - and the second time we had Mish herself waiting for us! Well today there was no oranges or Mish, or any other cool thing. It was just Az, myself, our water bottles, my First Aid kit and sunscreen, and this crazy idea I had to conquer a mountain. Twice.
|This isn't even the steepest part|
But we were determined! I ended up sliding down most of the steep part. I don't have great shoes and I didn't want to slip. So I sat on my butt and slid instead. I had flashback memories of dragging myself out of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland following #princessaccident! One Active pants are tough - I have no holes in them. But my hands and tail bone are sore tonight, let me tell you!
|Only 1/4 of the way through! Bottom of the mountain. 1 lap down.|
|Moon booting it...space boots on the side of a mountain|
Because of the different trail we had to use, it took a little bit longer than expected, and I was getting a bit stressed because I was going to be late for boot camp. It was like my reward for climbing the mountain...yes, that sounds weird! But I love it and it propelled me on and made me keep going when I wanted to rest more. I had to get to boot camp!
|WE DID IT BABY!|
|My cal burn record!|
And that's why I'm loving it :)
|Az a bit exhausted|
|Me a bit exhausted|
|A cute water tank I've never noticed before|
|My friend Ange gave me this butterfly when we had lunch today so I had to wear it :)|
|Spot the boot :)|
|At the end of the day - sweaty but happy :)|
