Well, errand day went fairly well. Got nearly everything done I wanted to, so thats a plus. Saturday was interesting. Got up early, had a couple of cups of coffee, some yogurt and a protein bar and off to the mud run I went. Got there in plenty of time to do all the checking in etc...... and as it turns out, I was in the first heat. Oh joy... better than the last one when the days temp is up! Sooooo of I go on an 8k adventure. I wasn't worried about the distance, just the obstacles..... I should have been more worried about the course. There weren't that many obastacle, per se.... just lots of sand... loose beach sand. Nearly 80% of the course was loose sand..... I ran the first 2 miles... and walked most of the last 2.... running through sand is tough! I finished the course, which was the goal, and will probably do it again next year.... knowing what the course is. All things considered, I had an enjoyable time... met some good folks, got some good exercise, a sun and sand burn, chilled out in the ocean. Good times.
So I get home from the fun run and start farm fun... yeeeeee haw! A fun filled sweaty afternooon was had by all!
Sunday was weed-eating and bush hogging..... the fun never stops! lol Didn't do a long run on Sunday. Figured Saturday covered it.

Thanks! The mud run was the 2nd one I have ever done, but the first time I had done one that long..... I do have a goal of doing a Tough Mudder, which is 10-12 miles long... but not this year! I have a bit more training to do to be ready for something that long....

Well done on the run, squire, seeing it was on sand, and farm work in the afternoon, most impressive, how were the calves?

Oh yeah, running in sand, even walking in sand - will give you gorgeous legs... I mean it's a really good workout.

Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
