The road less travelled

Most of the time I enjoy the solitary path, it keeps me focused and right now I certainly am that. I have completed a week of weight training and cardio on the other days. I am now back into my routine of 3 days + 3 days. My weight training is going well and I can feel the strength surging back into my body. Cardio consists of walking on an incline and flat with some steps thrown in to simulate as best I can HiiT. Followed by ab work. Rock On.

I'm going to spend the rest of the year getting myself back into a position where I can restart my "SUPER-CHALLENGE" in January when I'm back from vacation.

Guess where I'm going for my vacation. Right... St Francis Bay. If that sounds vaguely familiar to you it's because that is where I had an argument with a sand bank and came off 2nd best by trying to head butt the thing. I need to stand on that beach and confront the place that hurt me so badly. I need to make friends with it and swim in the place that so nearly took my life.

Until then I will train hard, eat right, drink lots of water and 'go like hell'

Hope you'll come along for the ride.

Just letting you know I'm here and reading. I'm a talker, but when I read your blog my words seem small. So many thoughts. I love you, Dougal.

Sounds like we are taking care of some "unfinished business".
Good thing. said...

So wonderful to hear about your clean test results! You've done a 180 through the power of belief, will and sheer determination. You are an inspiration more than you know, dear Dougal.
