Training for the ‘goat’…December the 5th

7 Nov

last day of non-training
Having enjoyed a week of rest, I am about to embark on training the the goat. It is now less than one month till I am once again shimiying up rock faces,falling off outcrops, and doing a river crossing or two. From memory, there is only one major river crossing so I will begin praying for a drought around Tongariro national park. Selfish I know. We have talked Reuben, into doing it with us. He is young and strong and fit, an arborist by trade, so I have no doubt he will whip my arse completely. (I will never tell him this though…I have already started taunting him with me beating him..hahaha! whipped by an old lady huh Reubs?!!)
I will begin with an easy run around Karori sanctuary tomorow.
Anyone else up for it?

    An ‘easy’ run around the sanctuary? Have fun 😀 One day I will be fit enough and strong enough to even think about running around that way. One day……

    Although I am intrigued by what “the goat” actually is, it occurs to me that I haven’t lavished any sappy praise on you for your completely awesome marathon! You ROCK! Great job and wonderful report.
    Good luck with the goat, I know they eat many things so I hope it doesn’t eat you too. Sounds like a fun time.

    the goat sounds intense. after suffering through a trail run this morning i don’t know that i’d be able to handle the goat! (but it does sound like fun)
