There is no better excuse than partying in the festive season to blame for not sticking to your exercise or training routine. The body has been through a lot in the past year and exhaustion got the better of me.

I hardly ran or went to gym, I was in a partying and recovering to party again mode. Now that the festive season is practically over, its time to focus on the tasks at hand:

  • Losing the festive season weight gain
  • Training for the Berlin Marathon

As mentioned in my last blog , I will be sharing my plan with you and you are welcome to join me.

The plan begins this week and you can download it here: january-2017-training. It would be awesome to run and train with you. The Nike+ Training and the Adidas Train & Run apps are great for the strength training days, they have a lot of sessions you can chooses from and they are both free apps.

I will be taking part in the 3 Peak Challenge this weekend, it will be great hill training and getting the legs strong, it’s a weekend challenge which consists of:

  • Friday evening 13 Jan: Hike up Lions Head
  • Saturday morning, 14 Jan: Hike up Devils Peak
  • Sunday morning, 15 Jan: Hike up Table Mountain

The challenge is free, you can buy your cable car ticket to get back to the bottom of the Table Mount through webticket, check the 3 Peaks events page for more details.

I will also be taking part in the following races in February:

Hope to see you on the road.
