Well in a little over 5 weeks I will be heading to the Sahara Desert…didn’t really think about the 5 weeks until discussing it with Jon, my trainer today. Jon Stratford – awesome trainer (www.commandoactive.com) – getting me to the start line in one piece and fighting fit – just in case anyone thinks I have it easy – he is ex-Marine and well, that should say it all, although I think his challenge to make me able to do 10 pullups is a little ambitious! 1 nearly kills me.
And Brett Davison – my awesome physio, who worked with me 5 years ago, is also helping me to get to the start line in one piece – although he did mutter something today about the 800 odd competitors being escapees of a mental hospital (ha ha ha!
Anyways, it’s all going well – looking for two big runs this weekend around the horse track of Hyde Park. Gradually acquiring all the kit – building the nutrition. Great biltong for sale in Borough market – mmm delicious, an absolute essential.
