Day 51 of 84

Status: Round 6: Phase 1: Day 3


Wow! That was cool! We went to a waterpark on the Gold Coast today and surprisingly got in a great cardio workout (I'll fill you in as to why in a sec.). The Wet'n'Wild waterpark had a record crowd in attendence, I overheard two workers say over 11,000. This is because it is both summer holidays and school holidays here in Australia now.

The waiting time for each major waterslide ride was about 45 minutes. As we didn't get to the park until 3.00pm we had only two rides under our belt by 5.30pm. The park was staying open until 9.00pm once their Dive'n'Movie showing in the wave pool had finished. This was our best chance to get some rides in quickly!

By 7.00pm the park had really thinned out, most people were watching the movie now. We went for it. We hit every major ride twice in under 1 hour. With our adrenalin pumping and our endorphins flowing, we were running back up the stairwells to go on the rides again. We felt just like kids again. By the end of the day we had got in a steady-state cardio workout due to all the running we were doing!

I will have a workout tomorrow in the only gym in Surfers Paradise! Can't wait for that, it will be my first "Lactic Acid" workout
since December 14. I will be feeling it!

I must go now...

Peace, AJ

P.S. Here are Day 51 pics for December 29, 2006. These pics were taken on the Gold Coast at my Mum's house.
