Motivation by the truck load…

It may be obvious by the general lack of updates, that the mop of demotivation has reared its dank and musty head once more

I have still been training, but it has been a little more sporadic than I would like, which means that, although I am making progress, it is slower than I want it to be.

So, in an effort to banish the mop and get myself going, I have (along with the 2 comps I am doing) entered a truck pull competition! Well, a truck pull anyway… it’s for the charity Sands (neonatal and stillbirth charity) and I have a feeling I’m the biggest competition will be with myself, I am just hoping to get these things moving!!

Yes yes I know, I have pulled trucks before and I love it! But this is a different kettle of whatsits altogether!

This time I am going to have to (attempt to) pull 3 trucks: a 13 tonne truck, a 22.5 tonne truck and a 50 tonne truck!!

Yes you read that right… 50 tonnes!! It is basically a big truck with a heavy thing sitting on its back because the heavy thing is not enough on its own!!

They look like this:

It’s going to be exciting… and hard!! But I really want to try and get that big thing moving, and if I can make some money for a god cause along the way then that’s even better!

Talking of money, if you want to sponsor me the I’d do a little happy dance in your honour!

So training for this is going to involve lots of leg strength and leg power! This is ok though as those are thing I really like training 😁 it fits in with the competition training I am doing too, but (and this bit is important) I am goi g to have to be much more consistent and dedicated!

As I said, I have been doing things, but I definitely need to do more and I will keep you all posted of how it goes… however this is the point in the post where I bombard you with pictures (and possibly a video or two to show you what I have been doing 😁
