The Year of the Trail

6 January, 2018

Okay, so we know that it is the Year of the Dog, making it essential for those of us born in 1958 to wear red underwear and jade accessories.

But I have also declared it the Year of the Trail, first by entering the Karkloof 50-miler and second by getting my hot, sweaty paws on these beautiful babies pictured above.

Right, so that was the easy part….now for the hard work. I need to get super strong (enter my biokineticist at Balance Sport and Wellness) and I need to build muscle (enter my dietician at Complete Living). And I need to run and run and run…….but not overdo it. The bio has advised me to cross train with some cycling. She reckons that up to a third of my training can be done on the bike. Now I need to figure out how to do that – I know that one hour of cycling does not equal one hour of running, so I need to do a bit of research here. Watch this space.
