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.

Over 1/2 way there

Posted by Alice, Monday 31st Jul

A couple of weekends ago, we hit the 23 km mark on probably the best run so far.  From Kirribilli, over the bridge, through the city, over the Anzac Bridge and out to Lilyfield and around the bay over to Iron Cove (and then back).  It was cold but sunny and having never run aorund the "Bay Run" before, I thought it was pretty special.  Mum and Dad (and Will's dog Frankie) were our "Energy Champions", standing by at the 7km mark with water, gatorade, glucose and positive vibes for us to soak up and keep us going.  Heading back over the Anzac Bridge was definitely the toughest part - my pace slowed down to 10 minute kilometres as I shuffled up to the top.  When you're driving over that bridge, it doesn't seem like a big hill, but it felt like a mountain that day.  

The bad news is that the week after, in the Dolls point Half Marathon, i injured myself and so have been taking it easy the last couple of weeks while my knee "loosens up" again.  Hope to be back next week, but for now I've been watching from the sidelines enviously as the rest of the Pod get stronger and fitter.  They are so impressive.  Sarah is so strong-willed, Kate is resilient and focussed, David is so positive, Aimee is  very very fit, Anthony looks like he is floating when he runs - so easy!, Steph is steady and seems unbothered as she runs and John (Coach) is a wonderful combination of all of these traits which he has helped cultivate in everyone. 

 

1/4 of the way there

Posted by Alice, Wednesday 31st May

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

Posted by Alice, Monday 15th May

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.
