Last week, Twodadsandakid was invited to a Mazda Brand Experience which I was happy to be able to accept and trek the almost 1 hour drive through to the Gerotek facility, just west of Pretoria. I am by no means a car expert or a ‘petrol head’ but I enjoy driving and the experience that comes with it. I spend a fair amount of time driving for work and pleasure with the family so I do look forward to getting behind the wheel and travelling to see family, spend a few days away with the family or travel to destinations...

If you are anything like me when it comes to training during winter then you too have most probably slacked off on the training between June and August and opted to rather hibernate and recover from all the hectic racing and ‘pb’s’ that occupied most of your summer and late Autumn. Not a bad thing when you consider that even slick, well oiled and prepped hi-performance F1 engines need an overhaul and upgrade before the start of the new racing season. If my description above sounds too familiar then you’ll be happy to know that taking a break is...

Working on balancing “life” and training – Comrades 2018

The past, nearly three weeks, have passed by in a blur. Not that they have passed that fast but more the “busyness” of the last three weeks.

Training on hold… I’m sick – Comrades 2018

It’s been kinda hectic This past week was one in which I felt less enthusiastic to go for a run. I put it down to the half-marathon that I had run the previous Sunday, that and the mileage I had clocked the past few weeks. By this time I knew better than to push when my body didn’t want to so I kind of let it slide and didn’t venture out onto the road at all last week. Work had also been pretty manic so I couldn’t go for a short, quick run in the afternoon. Besides, hubby had...

Training Update … Comrades 2018

Bodybuilding a dream Thursday morning straight after my last blog post I made it to the gym. I got stuck into a strenuous back routine. As you might have realised or not. I am no longer a gym fanatic. No longer have aspirations of trying to emulate my bodybuilding heroes of the early 1990’s. Heroes like Bob Paris, Lee Labrada, Rich Caspari or Shawn Ray. I used to spend a lot of money on all the international body building magazines. Reading up on their training routines, supplementation, competitions etc.   Training Training up to 6 days a week and...
