the going is tuff, but the tuff gets going

I am battling, but I am still surviving. Have not done a weigh in and have a massive cold. I am hoping to recover soon, would like to go running again on Thursday. Everything else is going good. I have a nice long weekend to look forward to at the in-laws farm. It is about a 3 hour drive, and we will be chilling from Friday and only coming back on Monday, which is a public holiday. My wife bought me the coolest present ever, a Garmin Forerunner 310XT. I am charging it now, but will definitely be using it. It comes with all kinds of goodies, including a heart rate monitor, which I am pretty chuffed about. It also has GPS and all the other features. It's a pretty amazing training companion if I go by what those who have one say on the interwebs.

So I am away from home this weekend, and next weekend I am heading to Joburg on Friday with some friends for a high speed driving experience on Kyalami, and then we will watch the Boks play on Saturday at Loftus. I'll probably stay behind and attend a meeting in Jozi that I heard about yesterday. So I should be coming back on Tuesday. I have not really had a chill out weekend in 6 weeks, so I am looking forward to the weekend of the 28th!

I will pack my running shoes and make sure I get some training done at least 3 times a week, I think it will be nice to run in different scenery and in a different location for a change.

Have a good Tuesday!
