HELL AND BACK – 11 Weeks to Go
This week I definitely stepped up my training with 8 sessions completed, also I started doing Rock Climbing this week(I went twice lol) which was absolutely awesome. I think I’ve found my new sport lol.
In Hell and Back there is plenty of climbing involved so I thought “Why Not?”
I would definitely recommend checking it out if you get the chance.
My running is slowly increasing in Distance (I’m not looking to push it too far too soon as Running was always the activity that I despised unless there was a reason for it). I’m completing an extra length of the park each week which is 0.8 km in total, this means in another 4 weeks I will have got to my 7km target, then I can just work on increasing my speed over the 7km
Also, I got a GoPro camera this week, so I’m going to start posting a few videos on the blog over the next couple of weeks.
