Crazy, crazy, crazy. But what I do like is that a large amount of effort, safety and risk reduction and even one member saying no I don’t want to jump today. That takes real self belief to not be pushed into doing something that does not feel right.

History provides some amazing stories how about the fastest bicycle ever even more information here titled Date with Death.

Thank you to those that never leave rubbish behind. What can I say, I like nature that is not polluted. I love being outdoors in pristine environments. I will often pickup stray rubbish, But hats off to this guy and his team who are about to  deploy the Longest Floating Structure In History Sets Out To Clean The Ocean In 2016. We can all do our bit by disposing of rubbish responsibly.

Podcast I started listening to this week – The Lively Show – Simplifying, Wellness, Career, Design, Business, Style, Blogging, Motherhood, Relationships, Food and Money. Lots of interviews.

The 40 hour work week. Who works that anymore? The origins of the 40 hour work week have more to do with the ability to spend your income, than in what can actually be achieved. Do you need a 40 hour week?, Do you need more or less? Do you really need more stuff to actually enjoy a good life? Can you do more with-less? Think about your work hours can you achieve more this post may help 

Seriously cool, will it be at all functional? That is yet to be seen. Leathermans new product the Tread.

Training advise from coach Dag Kaas who has produced 12 individual world champs in 4 different sports. “My experience as a coach tells me that to become world champion in endurance disciplines, you have to train SMART, AND you have to train a LOT. One without the ohter is insufficient” I would add to this that this goes for anything you want to be truly good at.

Breathing is so important to any human especially those trying to improve in endurance sport. Lung Power – Need more air.

Vulnerability is not letting it all handout. It is a raw bid for connection person to person, intimacy, trust and connection. Here is a fantastic TED talk by Brene Brown well worth the time to watch.

For a long time now at least the last 5 to 7 years I have been researching and some what applying the notion that less is more. I love the concept of Tiny Houses and what that could mean to the growing population and world resources. Here is a great site on planning Tiny Homes.

I have spent the last week traveling with a very successful sporting team on the National Stage. Lots of these athletes were teenagers with parents of course. What Parents Should Say as Their Kids Perform.

I love to run, when I run by myself I love tunes, but I like new tunes and I like fast beats when running (most of the time). A few weeks ago I was introduced to Soundcloud. I love it. Soundcloud is Facebook for music. If you like music check out Soundcloud.

My Stats for the last week (Recovery week) Because of travel I completed 2 runs 17km on a treadmill. I also did a lot of extra walking around Melbourne City and the Yarra.

I listen to pod-casts as part of my commute usually to and from work. This week one show in-particular grabbed my attention and I wanted to do further research: Global Gridlock – Getting There and this bit of writing on the subject: The Threat of Global Gridlock “In 25 years, there will be 9 billion people living in urban areas — more than the entire population of the Earth today. If they are all driving cars, gridlock could block the path of food, water and emergency medical treatment in cities” said by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP
