Hello.

So, each week at Can Too we have a guest speaker come and talk to the group about a range of things (physios, researchers, members from the Can Too executive, inspirational cancer survivors).

Anyway, last week our guest speaker was a researcher (Paul) who is a previous recipient of a 'Cure Cancer Australia Grant', which is funded by Can Too.

He told us about the research he has done mapping genomes to identify causes of rare cancers.  Even though there was a lot of science speak (which as you may know, is not my native tongue) it was actually a pretty moving talk.  Paul is a passionate and humble doctor who clearly sees the benefit (and indeed, the answers) in medical research.  

Anyway, it's prompted me to get going on my fundraising page so that another 'Paul' can benefit from the research grants funded by Can Too.

Thank you again. 

xx Alice 

Live Love. Love Life.

1/4 of the way there

Week 5 is the start of the next phase of training... Tempo (faster) runs start this month, and I'm already noticing the difference.  Our coach, John, is also starting to introduce hill interval training into our Wednesday sessions.  Anyway, tonight at training I was at the back of the pack.  The others were fast!  My legs just wouldn't go any faster though.  I finished the session puffed but not exhausted which is a good thing I suppose!  Maybe I'm getting a little fitter cardio wise...  maybe. 

So, it's been a few weeks

Week three this week and the aches and pains have settled a little.  

We ran around Sydney on the weekend and it was beautiful.  I think I have been craving to be part of a community for a while, because I'm really enjoying just being around people I've never met before and spending time learning about them in a totally isolated context from the rest of my life. 

I'm not a natural runner, and some days it is much harder than others, but slowly I am growing to like it more.
