Week in review passion personified

Wednesday 22nd March

Fittrek this morning 8.30am Quarry Rd, Hornsby, 2 participants.

After warming up ankles, hips, backs and necks headed down the stairs to the open area. Did 30 step ups each leg, 30 squats and 30 lunges each leg. Then back up the stairs. Recovered on the way down. Repeated the step ups, squats and lunges then pushed out over the river to the top of the hill. Shuffled back down to then go as fast a possible to the top of the stairs. Cooled down by stretching hamstrings, itb and quads.

Luckily no bites from the leeches and not one raindrop but very humid!

Thursday 23rd March

Thursday Fittrek for women session was at one of our favourites for stairs and climbs - Quarry St stairs, Hornsby. Part of the GNW this trail has all you'd want from an interval training based location. Lots of elevation gained! Stunning bush and rock landscape and creek crossings. The water was too high for us today to cross but we got to "look at the effects of climate change on our local bushland". How is this heavy rain impacting?? One of us is a geography teacher!! Strong girls backing up after a 30 and 60km effort at Coastrek just under a week ago. You girls rock!

Sunday 26th March

It truly does not get much better than a morning like this. Stunning sunrise to lift our spirits as we set out in one of my favourite adventure trekking / workout locations. Warriewood beach - steps,sand, hills,uneven terrain, rock scrambles with the backdrop of dramatic coastal rock faces. Perfect training terrain for our forthcoming Freycinet adventure.

Straight into the stairs at the end of the beach, and with a series of intervals and exercises we make our way to the secluded Turimetta, which felt like our own workout playground. Onto North Narrabeen - always special with the headland rockscramble and beautiful coastal pools.

All the while training hard and immersing in our natural environment. Super well done to all the girls this morning! A great effort.
