... should have done the thrusters with a lighter weight but did it with 25 kg and did it in 3 rounds of 5 reps. Come the last rep I was crying actual tears. Everyone was around me counting them down and I was just dying. Anyway, we managed to do two rounds plus a few extra wall balls. Atrocious yet amazing would be the best way to describe that workout. But it's done me good before the weekend. Now to kick back, relax and watch Downton! Happy Friday everyone. Ero Tergum ...
... is the world’s largest swing, it comprises of a 70m free-fall from a hanging platform which is the start of a 300m swing across the Nevis valley. We were feeling a bit apprehensive as we sat in the minibus on our way to the site, but kept reminding ourselves that this is where such sports began, with the best safety records worldwide.
