Hell & Back, Titan; Training, Week 3.

Hi There!

What a hectic week last week was. Weekly scheduled training was, well, not very on schedule but its okay because we got some mammoth variety in exercise. As you know one of our Mudslinging team is getting married the week before Titan, and we were off in Kenmare celebrating this fact with all of her female friends. (AKA, the Epic Hen party of the century).



Fluffy zogabongs, hill walking boots, sweat, dancing, high leg kicks, champagne glasses, girly purses... you name it, we did it- and what I have just described was our trek up Irelands Highest mountain, Carrauntoohil. Yes, yes... I jest you not- All we were short of going straight to a nightclub were the high heels, a spot of makeup and better attire. It was super fun.

Our (only slightly hungover) 7.5hrs round trip took us up near the foot of the Devils Ladder where we turned off and made our ascent via the Zig Zags route. The Devils ladder is quite eroded from use and is potentially quite dangerous due to falling rocks etc, so we felt it better to take the safer route. It’s longer, but the views are spectacular, so well worth the effort. We had a brief lunch and a celebratory sparkling water (in champagne glasses of course- we’re very swish) before making our way back down. We met afew nice folk along the way and received many a curious glance.

Back to the hotel, we donned our best frocks, ate some fabulous food and boogyed the night away. All four of us can honestly say that, at 3am- the 3 minute walk back to the hotel in our heels was more difficult than anything else we achieved that day. LOL

Back to whets instore for this week. The sand is slipping through the hourglass waaaayyy to fast for my liking, so I had better put a bit more pressure on with the training.

WEEK 2 is as follows:
Exercise:
Daily:
30 sit ups x 4
1 pull up followed by 5 chin ups
10 push ups x 3
65 second planking

Over the week:
Swimming- 30 lengths of the pool x 2
6 km runs x 2

How are you all getting on with your training? I hope well. Did you see fellow blogger, Sarah Kirk’s blog this week? It’s excellent and she is running Titan for an excellent cause.
