Mudder training #6

Well up the Abergwyngregyn falls we went with a slow run up (the word run used lightly lol)! We stopped off part way up at a water fall for a dip top to bottom #brrr then carried on... I didn't think up could have been any worse or much further I was already done in, I was wrong . My chest was f'ed start to finish as well #boo but made it, where I wasn't light jogging I was power walking. Downwards is just as bad dodging the sheep and trying not to go skidding down as the path got quite steep in parts.

I had few 'moments' with the heights/views on the downwards journey but I actually really enjoyed it and so did my calorie burn stats

No sure I have any energy before I go but once you're so far only way is to carry on I guess

We don't get to know what we are doing until the day before or even on the day.

Mudder training #7

A fell run and swim in the lake at Llyn Geirionydd having a little fml moment now and then... can you see the pattern in the training? lol BUT I'm really enjoying it.

This was our evening!
  • Straight in to run in the lake knee to hip depth
  • Back on ground to run/power walk the trail upwards, some parts rocky onwards to some boggy parts
  • Another nice big lake ... lets go for a swim haha #die when so far in you have to keep swimming because your feet don't touch the ground
  • Back onto land and upwards on the trail path
  • Back down which was a big phew for me
  • Back in the lake but this time swimming further on, wow I cannot swim lol, that was hard work
  • Out, run back down the last part of the rocky trail

811 calories burn 6.40 km of distance

So trail runs up and down with 2 swims thrown in took 1hour 18mins

I christened the new shoes which was fine since I bought them for this purpose and also tested the fitbit... its' water proof

Pics attached ... I am second in from left

That lake looks bloody freezing!!

Loving the shoes. How do you find your fitbit? I was wondering if they're as good as they're made out to be. I've got an agreement with OH that I'll get one but only if I keep going to the gym 3 times a week for at least a few months. Otherwise it will become a really nice bit of jewellery

Between the recent mudder sessions I have joined a new ladies who lift programme, exciting times!
New Routine For 4 Weeks - Ladies Who Lift Group
Feeling well and truly like I am smashing this right now

Mudder trainer #8... sprints, I was dreading this session but it's over now. I managed 6 of the 8 laps challenged. I didn't feel so failed when I realised others too sat out of 1-2 laps but not everyone so well done to those guys who were awesome for 8/8!

Then onto the next morning for my transformation session, ABS, it was tough but also a good en
  • 50 - Ab mat sit-ups
  • 50 - Crunches
  • 50 - Knee-ins
  • 50 - Reverse crunches
  • 50 - 5kg russian twists
  • 50 - Heel touches
  • 50 - 5kg medball slams
  • ... followed by 1 minute rest before repeating 40 times, 30, 20 then finally 10 reps!

*The End*

I'm enjoying my new routine for 4 weeks in the transformation ladies who lift group and have started looking forward to a Thursday night challenge with the mudder sessions. I think I might miss them?
