Antarctica Countdown 76 Days and Counting: En”tire”ly Easier

What a difference a week makes…Today’s tire pull was entirely easier (forgive the pun). Instead of needing to stop for exploding calves, it was my max heart rate that called for pause. I can already see and feel progress of the first big week of training. Sweat was pouring off my face as I pulled a “3/4”, (to the visitor’s centre on Signal Hill). It was a total distance of 2.3 kilometres and 93 metres of elevation gain. Thanks to Natelle and Toby who came out this morning to keep me company (and make sure I got out of bed). Later today, I’ll tackle my second set of sand bag get ups et al. Soon, I’ll also put my attention on gear and rope practice with huge mitts on.
