Whilst Rees was away with the army a couple of weeks ago, I went to Fitzroy Island and Cairns. One of my favourite things to do on the island was to run or quick walk to the Summit Fitzroy Island.
It’s a 3.6km return track (269m) and graded difficult. They recommend two hours to walk it. When I walked with the family it took about 1.5 hours. When I ran my fastest it took 15 minutes 16 seconds (the resort owner said the fast he had heard of was 20 minutes – woo!).
Hundreds of THOUSANDS of butterflies live in the rain forrest, all you need to do is knock a tree and there are flutters of blue all around you. You can see in this picture below just how many butterflies there were!
Before I left I was gifted some Cheeta Recovery Compression Tights. They are super comfortable but slightly see through in some lights so ladies get out your thongs (no I don’t mean the ones you put on your feet) or pop over a pair of shorts. However, they are probably the most comfortable smooth tights that I own! It’s saved my legs from the chaffing my running shorts give me on long runs and the cut of the long pants are very flattering.
Isn’t my Mum gorgeous? Takes me back to my childhood bush walks, Mum finding all the pretty flowers. About half way there’s even a split rock to work on your abs with leg lifts! We had a lot of fun along the way – can you tell?
