    Hey Guys! I hope the training is going great!

    *Inhale* *Exhale* ahh! its good to be back doing this again!

    Last year I managed to accomplish many things since coming back: accomplish the Spartan Super and Sprint, Accomplish a Muscle Up (well a jumped up from wall lol), Handstand Push Up and No Leg Rope Climb and also started crossfit. All is going great.

    Now for my ultimate challenge to date, I am training for the Spartan BEAST in September (20km Race with 30+ Obstacles) which I am excited and terrified at the same time.

    Any way I will be doing either a weekly or monthly update on this training keep you updated on what I'm doing. For the training itself check out my profile page to see my daily routine

    Hope you enjoy this exciting experience with me. Oh! Almost forgot I'm not only doing the Spartan Beast I am also (as a birthday present) doing the Rat Race Survival of the Fittest London in July which will be great fun!

    Welcome back, BlackButler! Keep on rocking!


      However! I had a Blood donation yesterday so I need to take it easy for the day today which sucks (get it ) anyway there won't be an entry of Man Makers or Bucket carries this weekend I don't want to burst a vessel lol!


        Hey guys! Hope the training is going great!

        Sorry I haven't written in a while been hella busy! But here is a catch up of what has happened in toward my training for the Spartan Beast!

        On July the 8th I ran the Rat Race Men's Health Survival of the Fittest 10K Obstacle Race at Wembley Stadium in London, I was super chuffed with my time of 1:10:46. But afterwards I buggered up my IT Band and had no run in 2 weeks.

        I am now healed up and in my second week of Marathon training and all is going well.

        have also stopped doing morning workouts as this was really tiring me out on top of crossfit training so I am currently doing Crossfit Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. Doing loads of Hero Workouts which are improving my endurance and strength.
        So hopefully as it is only 8 weeks to go till the race I should be fit enough to tackle it


          Hey! It's great to see you, thanks for stopping by. Best of luck with the race!


            Welcome back, BlackButler

            The Spartan BEAST sounds so intimidating, I think I'd just hide from it. So, good on you for not doing that

            Also, I. Love. Data. So, this is a great training log to follow

            Good luck


              Hey Guys! I hope the training is going well!

              I will be shortly updating the past 2 weeks of my training onto this blog so keep your eyes open.
