  • Bridge to Brisbane - Father's Day 2014

    Happy Father's Day everyone!
    My second one, and decided to celebrate in style. After all, I suck and I hate myself

    To that end, I did the ten klicks with a penalty weight of 20kg's of kit in my favourite Mystery Ranch pack - so with the expression of self loathing on my face, I wasn't too hard to spot.

    My planned finish time was to be one hour and forty miniutes.
    I'm rather pleased to say I did it in 1hr 33mins. Significantly faster than I planned on. A couple of factors: in training, I don't shuffle (run), and the Good Lord saw fit provide so much eye-candy for me to ogle. Proof that there is a God, and He really does love broken old Diggers :lol:

    Heart/fitness wise, average. I could do it again this afternoon, despite feeling a little bit stiff.
    But... my feet have a couple of decent blisters. The current job has me doing more sitting/standing than walking, and I haven't been toughening my feet as much.

    Did anyone else go? How was it for you?
    Where we are, where we belong, where we should be.

    Well done 22F.

    Sadly this year was the first year this decade I missed both B2B and the Gold Coast marathon.

    Not due to work either.

    Took the dogs for a run on the beach this weekend before B2B and sadly my bitch has suffered an injury while running. Unfortunately unable to put a load on her right rear leg.

    Proof that exercise can cause harm without proper preparation.

    Take care out there.

      Ah bugger mate!
      Hopefully, the poor girl comes good.
