It was an early start at 4.15am to have breakfast and drive to Lake Dewar, to compete in a preparation obstacle event 'Spartan', a 14km obstacle course!! Which we just happened to do that little bit extra as we got lost... twice!!! Of course as soon as we realised this, we had to turn around and do certain parts again.
Spartan is always our top obstacle course, as it mainly about physical ability rather than doing some of the things required in Tough Mudder, but on this occasion the course layout was a massive fail. However, we both still loved it, and it also helped us to recognise the areas that we need to work on over the next three months.
Our friends Dave and Jean invited over for a Labour Day Weekend BBQ, at first we were not sure if we could make it, as we didn't know what time we got back, but we did.. Dave also a PT did a fantastic job on the BBQ and Jean, being the most amazing chef made the best food, including a mouth watering cake that it would have just been too rude to say NO too. We are so grateful that we can spend some time with these amazing people and at the same time get spoilt by food (you really can't say no when it tastes this good, but at least we did work it off in the morning, so a small treat was greatly deserved).
To have the pleasure to enjoy this little piece of luxury, was well worth doing Spartan.
