Loooong day on the road....

Yebo yes! Whole day in Secunda at Sasol. Really tired. Driving home ducking and diving the potholes makes you want to chill in front of the tv rather than putting on thos running shoes! But, drag your lazy butt to the bedroom. Get dressed. Open the door...all without thinking and just GO! 2 minutes later, you can not believe that you wanted to sit it out, weird hey?

Today I have a 9km run whith a 4km time trial. Looking forward to see what form I'm in.

Till tomorrow

Running in the rain....again!

Yesterday I had a short run of 8km which included 4 x 600m hill repeats. Close to my house is a 600m incline which has received various names names from athletes too explicit to be mentioned on a family blog! It has an average gradient of about 7.5%.
I did them slow starting of with a 3:20 and worked it up to end with a 2:50. I am still very unfit, but taking in account that my target race is more that 400days from now, I think that I am ahead of schedule regarding my strength.
More feedback tomorrow and hopefully it wont rain during my cycling session later today.

Follow every step

Are we crazy? Are we mad? Probably yes. But, as you look back after 10 days of the race (yes, only after 10 days otherwise you will think it is madness too!) you start planning for the next mountain to must be must be has to be CRAZY!!!!

I will share with you every stroke I swim, every revolution of the wheel, every touch of rubber on the tar....

Let me hear from you...the road is long and I need your support.
