Savour Life. Save a Life.

I’m hosting a Big Aussie Barbie!

Prostate cancer threatens the lives of 1 in 6 Aussie men. 

That’s why I’m hosting a Big Aussie Barbie this November to raise money for research, nursing and support that can save the life of a man I love.

I’ll be firing up the barbie to support Aussie men and families impacted by prostate cancer. 

Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Managed to squeeze in 1500m at Kokoda Memorial Pool between drop off and pick up of kids.

Day 5

Tuesday 10th Nov
1800m this morning. Good way if starting the day. I am too acclimated  to townsville. After the rain I found the water slightly cold! 😂 I can’t believe I thought that !

Week 1 done

Monday 9th Nov
6700m swam this week. It is a good start. 
I know more women that have/had breast cancer than men that have/had prostate cancer, but I know more men that have past away from prostate cancer than women from breast cancer. Awareness and testing are important.

1700m today! Brought my fins in other toys to train along with me. Finished with interval training! Sooo good .

Day 3

Tuesday 3rd Nov
3rd of November 

Late start this morning. Sent the kids off to school and squeezed 1500m before going to work.
5km in total from the 1st of November.

Monday! Slept in a bit after a busy week end. Did not hit the pool at 6am as planned, but at 6.30. 30’ swim and back to mum duty.

Day 1

Sunday 1st Nov
Left home with my bike for the pool this morning. Swam 2250m according to my watch but I was going by 100 m in a 50m pool.... so I think 2300 as it skipped a turn . Can t trust technology....
