How fast has the first half of this year been around!
We were discussing the other day at the office, that it feels like just yesterday we were all wishing each other the best for 2015. It won’t be long now, before our office manager comes around asking us again when we plan to take our December leave!
Yoh! Where’s this time racing to?!
First half of the year is over, and I think I can proudly say that I achieved much of what I’d hoped to in terms of my physical activity at least. I managed to run the Dischem21km back in January, did the OmDieDam21km later in March, and my ultimate, the Two Oceans Half Marathon in April. For someone that was initially content with just running a 5km, I’m super impressed with myself.
For this second half of the year, I have the 5150 Ekurhuleni African Championship at the Germiston Lake, a triathlon taking place later this year. There are a few before but I’m focused on this one for now. I’m hoping it will be the one that will hook me and drive me towards Ironman in 2016.
This weekend is time for another weekend of training with the Dare To Tri Academy out in the Eastrand. For me the main focus is the Total Immersion swimming workshop. Targeting both the novice and more experienced Triathlete, who are keen to improve their swimming techniques …efficiency and speed come to mind. Georgie Thomas is an experienced triathlete herself, having completed a number of Full Ironman and Half Ironman Championship events. I enjoy swimming so am super excited to attend this workshop this weekend.
Then there’s the DSTV KIDS Xtravaganza starts tomorrow and promises to be another opportunity for parents looking for ways to keep their toddlers entertained over the school break.
Then this coming Sunday 5th July, Monte Casino, Showtime Management and Beautiful Creatures will be at the Piazzo at Monte Casino presenting Beautiful Creatures for FREE!!! Now doesn’t that sound simply amazing! Who doesn’t love a freebie now and then?
The Beautiful Creatures trio will bring interactive sing along shows to audiences on the Montecasino Outdoor Piazza Stage on the following weekends on July 4th and5th at 11h00, 13h00, 15h00 and on the 22nd and 23rd of August 2015 at 11h00, 13h00, 15h00.
The 20 minute shows will feature some of Beautiful Creatures best loved songs, including Imvubu the Happiest Hippo, Lucas the Lazy Lion, Harry the hungry Hadeda and Mafutha the Elephant. So why not take the family over to Monte Casino for a bit of exciting fun for all.
In an effort to regain my running fitness, I’m waking up real early on Sunday to go an run through the streets of Greenside. My legs can feel I’ve not been hitting the road for a while. I need to get my fitness levels up again both for running and cycling.
If you’re not doing much, why not join me and many others on the road to fitness and support the Pirates Running Club at the event this weekend?!
