Dear Travellers

I really wished we could have stayed longer in the orangutan sanctuary - such a special place to be.

Today on Day 35 of our voyage around the world we are in Bali being pampered. Just what you need after clocking all those kms this week - a deep tissue massage or maybe a pedicure? Your favourite cocktails served by Ricky Martin's backing singers. If you're lucky, Ricky might be on the steamer later πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

Happy Travels everyone β˜€οΈβ˜€οΈπŸ˜πŸ˜

Hi Lizzie. I'm on the sofa wishin I was in Bali.

16.32k today. Mainly cycling against the wind which is definitely worth trying. I feel like I have had a facial.

Have a nice evening.

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Gonti

Wtg you! I might have braved the wind, but not the wind driven rain, hail and sleet! It was back to the rollers for me.

Loads of K's and glowing skin :)

Well i was at the gym and on the treadmill by 6.30am and by 6.40am i was almost fainting and puking- so it seems this evil virus is getting the better of me- however undeterred i went home ate breakfast and returned an hour later- but i'm afraid the best i could do was 2 miles today : )

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Hidden

Do NOT push yourself to do things when you're ill! You naughty girl! A gentle stroll would have been more than enough.

I'm so proud of your guts and determination though.......even if they did end up in a bucket! ;)

How's the rowing going moreless ? Still finding it a struggle ?

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Hidden

OMG! It's a killer! It would be easier to get into a rowing boat! Either that, or I'm seriously feeble! :o

Hidden
Hidden in reply to moreless

Perhaps its just a matter of getting the technique right ? Your legs shoud be quite strong because of the cycling and that's the main area that gets used in rowing.

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Hidden

The rowing machine I've got has handles to pull like oars and I find them a real struggle to pull, even on the easiest level! I must have really naff upper body strength :o

Evening everyone :-) To be honest I have had a hectic couple of days because hubby is away at the moment, so I'm too exhausted even to chase Ricky !!

Anyway, did a 7.5k dog walk today :-)

All this km kicking is going to my head - have spent the last half hour contemplating entering the local half marathon in June :-O - at least I could stop off half way round for a lie down in my bed with only a minor diversion ;-)

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Hidden

Lucca! You've stunned me twice! Too tired for Ricky and a possible 1/2 marathon! Oh you must go for it, you'd do brilliantly and we'd all cheer you on! :)

Hidden
Hidden in reply to moreless

We'll see ! Perhaps see how I get on over the next month or so - seems an awful long way to run !!

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to Hidden

It's not much more than you're actually doing at the mo. Just keep adding a couple of K's a week and you won't even notice the difference! ;)

Ricky is one relieved stallion :D

Can't remember if I posted yesterday - work was hectic! So for Thursday it was 2.6 and today it's been 3.2. Fitbit arrived when I got home tonight so I am hoping to report more tomorrow. What ho fellow travellers, onward and upwards!

moreless

I can't remember either Saga and I've got no excuse! :)

Ooh a new fitbit! We're going to be stunned with your totals from now on! ;) Not that we aren't anyway! :D

This looks like a beautiful place to relax and enjoy a cocktail or two after a busy week, thank you for the wonderful pics. My km for today 3.7 km, have a good weekend everyone.

Fabulous number K_o_g! :)

😒 giving this amazing place a miss tonight, after a long exploration in the jungle of Borneo yesterday I succumbed to a nasty bout of jungle fever. Slept most of today and already in bed again. My total for today is 2.3 km, not sure how as I haven't moved much, but then it's quite a way to the kitchen πŸ˜‰

Enjoy your massages and drinks tonight, Elissy 🏨

Ooh no Elissy - you need to rest up and take it easy. Still a good number :)

Elissy in reply to Hidden

Thank you Lizzy 😊

Well done fellow travellers - it is great fun reading everyone's results.

I managed a grand total of 19.61kms, which was more than I was aiming for, so I am pleased about that. One of my knees is playing up, so I am going to be gentle with it tomorrow and hope that it eases up.

Keep up the good work everyone!

Hidden
Hidden in reply to LessToLose

Wow another fantastic number - well done you :) :) Take care with that knee - you need all your strength for the Ayers Rock climb :D

Hi all, back from my break...loved the hot tub and sauna we had in our lodge but back to reality now.

Evening all

Well I dragged my tired butt out of bed in the cold and dark at 5.50am this morning as promised to get on my exercise bike, even though hubby kept me awake snoring and once I managed to get to sleep the awful wind howling down the chimney woke me up again!

I got on my exercise bike and have done the following kms:-

AM - 9.2 km

PM - 10.1 km

Steps - 2335

Am shattered but happy with that πŸ˜€.

Looking forward to a lovely massage after all that!

Happy Friday everyone

Nic πŸ˜€

5km today. I hoped for a bit more, mut it was too windy and wet :( I have to do 12km between tomorrow and Sunday to reach a marathon spread in a week... Let's hope Sunday will be nice since tomorrow has still yellow warnings.

My idea of heaven, a deep massage followed by a cocktail, Mmmmmm.

No wellies today, managed 13616 steps, 9.1km. Not bad considering I was out to lunch. I was good and just had a bowl of tomato and red pepper soup. Tonight I made a Thai curry. I'll post the recipe later as it was delicious, quick and easy to make and low in calories.

Snow forecast for tomorrow so that might hamper progress but it's Saturday so set to enjoy the weekend. Have a good one folks β˜ƒ

Hidden
Hidden in reply to Bu-dog

I'm with you - Bali is my idea of heaven :D Well done on the Ks. Ooh I love a Thai curry - will look out for the recipe :) :)

Only 2kms for me....I see Lucca is a bit tired :( Gotta look on the bright side - that gives us all more of a chance with Ricky :)

Indeed it does - I have a feeling that Ricky will be going on tour with us for the rest of challenge. But keep that quiet in case Lucca finds out :D

14:61 miles to get me to Tebedu, can't believe how much it has changed but then it is over 40 years since I was last here. Gone is most of the ulu, the big pineapple plantation and the pepper plants, it would now seem to have gone and got all grown up from the little police outpost that I knew and is now a major broader control post from Malay to Indonesia.

Must see if I can get to Serian and see if that has gone and grown up as well.

trafford1
trafford1 in reply to moreless

This is what I mean moreless with all the exercise, cleaning, going to work, visiting my mum and going shopping plus planning and preparing dinner it all starts to get on top of you and I still haven't ironed the uniforms LOL I will leave that until the morning now, there's no way I'm gonna do that as well. Every spare moment these days seems to be filled with something else to do. I think I'm busier now than ever I need to take a chill pill I think :-)

I clock up those numbers because I'm addicted to exercise. I actually feel like I've wasted a day if I don't do something, you know what I mean :-)

If only the weekend lasted longer moreless, if only :-)

You put me to shame! I run out of time and I don't work and don't have children at home, only the grandchildren at the weekend :)

trafford1
trafford1 in reply to moreless

The mind works overtime sometimes, it's always thinking even when I'm running or walking it's still taking to me and thinking what next and I have to do it because it needs doing. I don't know what it is, it's like an adrenaline rush. I've got all this energy and it needs burning with an activity of some sort. Can't wait for the weather to pick up and get my skates on again :-)

trafford1
trafford1 in reply to moreless

Phahahahahah :-) that's so funny moreless I can understand how that can happen though. I'd of kept feeding Mr T the same old thing, but once he clapped eyes on my nice healthy meals he had to have what I was having which did make things a little easier for me :-)

moreless
morelessAdministrator in reply to trafford1

Mr M's fine with the healthy meals, but I give him all the added extras, like the Christmas goodies and the things I bake with the grandchildren. I tell him he's my taster! :D
