Bec’s Run For Better Days

Hi all!  This is one of my first of hopefully many blogs to come so hope you enjoy it. Anyway, a short intro is probably useful…

My name is Bec and I am really excited to be newly supported by AquaForce in my sporting endeavours. I am passionate about cycling, kite surfing, running, tennis and pretty much every sport under the sun, you check out my previous post for full info!

Today I am flying up to Townsville after visiting my family in Melbourne with significantly heavier bags due to the generous supply of AquaForce product for my training for the next few months. I am really looking forward to the next few weeks as I will be really ramping up the intensity of my training, plus I have started a few new fun activities- including rock climbing and a social soccer team at uni. I have also a new fairly major challenge that is on the horizon- ‘The Run to Better Days’. This will involve running 10km for 13 days straight with a team of 15 other athletes from the happiest place in Australia- Hervey’s Bay to Townsville to raise money and advocate for Caritas. At the moment, 10km is achievable, but only with the ramifications of extremely sore muscles and fatigue for the proceeding few days. So I have incorporated 3 running sessions into my training plan, in which I will slowly be building up the intensity and distance up until the run commences in mid-year holidays in July.

In order to fit these new running sessions in, along with 3 longer rides weekly on top of my 8km commute to uni each day, I am being forced to become an early bird (which I am finding slightly difficult!). Unfortunately by body clock is conditioned for sleep no earlier than 11pm at the moment, which when having to waking up at 4.30am in the morning for training rides, does not leave room for much sleep. I am fortunate that I have a full bag of AquaForce to keep me energised however. And as far as my body-clock is concerned, hopefully it will be kicked into place soon and I will be sweet!
