It’s 8am the day after Yurrebilla.

There’s no need for me to do a recap because unlazygirl & salwahh & linna-pee already covered it :D
Trying to get up but feel so wrecked. The sun and the screaming have blessed me with a headache. And who knew ringing a bell for 5 hours would be the equivalent of a bicep work out?!!

But the allure of brunch in beautiful Adelaide…. *rolls out of bed*

Today while exploring Adelaide city we got a good view of the track to try and comprehend the sheer distance the girls will be running tomorrow… It’s not pretty when you put it into perspective. 

Because we’re not crazy, unlazygirl and I have been tasked with ringing in the runners for the last kilometre of the race. WITH A COWBELL! We have the same wake up call as the others though :/

(That summit [Mt Lofty] is what we’re going to do for fun, one day soon when the girls recover from the 56km ultra)

I can comfortably lift 16kg of dumbbells but this 11.3kg suitcase has got me beat. Totally thought it was 20kg when I tried to lift it :P
Even took a trip to my aunts house to check the weight (I don’t have scales) and I’m safely under 15kg. 
RADELAIDE HERE I COME!!

I had to run to make the train and now I am sweating like an animal even though it is freezing today.

Actually mortified to make eye contact with anyone lest they make a face of disgust at the beads of sweat on my neck.
And possibly the discomfort of being sweaty is making me sweat even MORE.

Good warm up for fittclub group fitness that I’m heading to though.

(Ha yes this is my concentrated effort to feel more healthy 2 days out from Radelaide - better late than never)

Searching for a music video?

catsalwayslandontheirfeet:

Okay guys I am driving myself crazy looking for a music video that I know exists but I can’t for the life of me remember what the song is.

I know the music video is in a dance studio, there is a group of women in black flowing dresses who are doing some variation of Spanish dance, and there is a guy sat in the middle of the room playing his guitar.

I don’t know the lyrics to the song but I remember there is a strong human percussion element (like clapping/foot tapping) and it is quite a folky kinda song!

The things I have googled today:

"music video acoustic guitar dance studio"

"dancers swirling black dress spanish dancers"

"song clip flamenco dancers folk music"

GODDAMNIT when I get hung up on something it tortures me for the rest of the day!!

Can anyone help or am I a certified loony?

I found it! Such overwhelming satisfaction.
