[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cwkej79U3ek&w=560&rel=0] wow this morning was tough. i woke up about 3am and my body hurt all over. battered, bruised, the blister under my left foot screaming “no, please don’t make me run 1km intervals today”. so i got up anyway, put on the running gear and headed out to smash out 4 x 1km intervals […]

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-diB65scQU&w=560&rel=0] ok, so good news is that the cough seems to be gone. not-so-good news – i didn’t write any journal entries over the weekend, again. however… saturday i was doing tough mudder, and sunday i was recovering! i managed a 6.5km recovery run on sunday, and generally speaking i have pulled up ok, considering […]

mud, mud, glorious mud

mud, mud, glorious mud

it seems so long ago that i agreed to join a tough mudder team. the last 6 months have marked so many milestones, heralded in so many changes from the “old me”, that it really seems as though a lifetime has passed by. metaphorically, it has. when i look back at that post, it was fairly […]
