Well some times keeping fit just has to be fun, there was no pressure on times for this one, when I went with a group of friends to Devon for a dirty weekend!!!
Some months ago Becky at work suggested that I do the Commando Challenge, which is a 10k obstacle course over the Devon countryside, with mud & water & more mud!!!
We drove down on Saturday morning for our ridiculous early morning start on Sunday & got down & dirty!!
The route is a 3k run over fields & roads to the main event, straight into a tunnel, which is pitch black inside & we couldn't see a thing, had to go by touch 'Oops sorry madam was that your bottom!', well that was my excuse!!
Out the other end & into Peters' Pool. I think the expression on Becky's face tells you how cold it was!!
Freezing is an understatement!!
More water & loads more mud, but what fun. Definitely going to do it next year!!
It was an amazing time & we laughed all the way round, I am grateful for the generosity of my friends for their humour & patients in waiting for me to catch up. I'm now on a diet to lose a few stones before the next one!!.... Thanks guys xx
Footwear was a problem for the event, we all took boots with us as well, but decided on trainers & I'm happy to report I didn't get sucked off in a bog!!
One of the many tunnels we crawled through, they of course were pitch black when we did it!
Entrance to the 'smartie tubes'
The question is would I do it again, too bloody right & I'll be there again next year for more of the same!!! Come & join me should be a laugh!!
