Time to catch up with where I am

After my run in with the button spider I was off the grid for a while. I am glad to say I am now fully recovered and feeling 100% myself again.

These little buggers pack a mean punch!

I am back to full training again although I am taking a step or two back with my total weekly distances. The good news is that I have a race at the end of the month and can't wait for it!

I am training for the first race of the Highveld Winter Trail Challenge. This will be on 29 June and is a 17km trail run on some of my local trails, about 7km from home. :)

17km Trail race on 29 June.

Two weeks after this I will run the 25km Springbok Vasbyt in Pretoria.

25km Trail race on 12 July.

Things are looking up and my goals are lined up for the rest of the year. I am already entered for the 48 hour circuit race in Johannesburg in December. Seems like the rest of 2014 will see some proper running from me at last.

Take care and have a super week everyone!

Hurray for feeling better!

That 48 hour race sounds so intriguing!

Glad you are OK! We have a lot of those black widow spiders here. I've never known anyone to have actually been bitten by one though! They are very dangerous.
Looks like you have some great races coming up. Winter for you must mean a nice cool racing season!
Enjoy the training!

Running again, lucky man, long may it last.

48 hours, rather you that me, I don't even know how I would aproach something like that, what sort of training do you do? maybe you are going to have to set out your training plan when the time times?

Glad to hear that you are doing better! I told my parents about it and they wish you all the best as well. Tell those nasty spiders to hit the road! And sounds like a good schedule coming up :)
