Yesterday it was off to destination unknown with our local Hervey Bay Beachfit Trainers & Commando! We left by bus at 7am and were home just before 4pm.
Our first destination being Mt Walsh at Biggenden which we climbed taking 01:16mins to complete. It was extremely steep, slippery and quite scary in some places and you could certainly feel the burn in your calves on the way up and quads on the way down!
Rangers Warning; only experienced walkers should attempt the 2·5 hour hike to the summit of Mt Walsh.
Next we were dropped at a gate near Lenthalls Dam and instructed to run to the Boat Ramp. This turned out being over 5km on a dirt road in the very hot sun! We then had to blow up our inflatable kayaks and do 6 laps per team around the lilly pads in the middle of the dam. On completion we undertook an orientation course with several amusing tasks including, swinging out over a river, making a balloon doll, jogging with our legs tied together. All tasks had to be photographed to prove we had completed what was required. This took us 01:46mins.
By the time we had our delicious healthy lunch we were thoroughly exhausted!
The team I was in team WON in the end by ONE point! 96 to 95 …. What an extremely well planned course to achieve such a close result!
I thoroughly enjoyed a low carb beer on the way home thanks to Emma! What an AWESOME day, can’t wait for the next one!
