How'd it go?
We trained and set goals and we met those goals, but the competition was very tough so we finished near the bottom. Not worried as more about progress and getting better. Atmosphere was crazy having people cheer me as I could not let myself stop knowing they were supporting me. We had a large group, 7 teams of 4 of folks I know and was very proud one of our teams won it.
Good to hear man I'm glad you went out there and gave it your all!
Doing an event that is mix of fun and challenge. Basically an obstacle course with various exercises. Being outside and predicting rain I expect to get a bit dirty and possibly muddy. Its in good fun and meant to raise money for organ donation organization in the area.
Reminds me that I missed both a bench press and a deadlift competition here because I was on vacation in Northern Canada
Oh nice sig btw <3 one day I'm gonna marry Mattie Rogers....... and lose every argument we have because she can lift more than me
So has any body done a tough Mudder course? Done my 3rd one this year, absolutely love em although personally I find them quite easy. If you don't know what it is, it's a 12 mile assault course that travels all around the globe to different cities, it's awesome fun and I recommend it to anyone who likes keeping fit or just likes a good time (and getting really muddy)
In other news, injured my right arm all around my bicep, tricep up to my shoulder (Ouch) turned out its a pull so won't be Climbing for a week at least till it heals fully.
I had the opportunity to compete in one in Drumheller but unfortunately travel + entry cost didn't fit within my budget. I think I'll be in one next year
This has been the best summer for cycling so far, I must be nearing 3000 km total already. I love the heat, it doesn't bother me while I'm going. I raised my longest distance, loop of 127km. Took me 5 and a half hours with a break in the middle to swim in lake Ontario. That route involves a fun obstacle, carrying the bike 164 flight of stairs to the overpass above.
I bought new tires today, they're worn out again. 6 patches so far and there's lots of cuts in the outer tires. I have to buy new ones every year, bit sooner this year. Plus a couple patch kits a year and 4 inner tubes. The hand grips will need replacement again too next year, and the chain probably. It's over $500 maintenance a year, but definitely worth it.
That's crazy Sven I think you've cycled farther than I've driven this year, even with my trip up North!
