This weekend challenged me in ways I've not been tested before! A hardcore obstacle course laid out over a 30 mile distance in the beautiful woodlands surrounding Perth, Scotland.
I had expected it to be a step up from the usual Spartan Races, but the reality was a far greater trial than simply a double lap of the Beast!
Increased lengths on the Olympus Traverse, double the Sandbag Carry, double the Cinder Blocks, and a more challenging Slippery Wall were just some of the upgrades in store for us!
Once again, my perceptions of what I'm capable of are altered for the better.
Saying that, it's still debatable whether I'd have achieved what I did without the help and support of my friends, family and fellow Spartans.
My friend and fellow Ultra Competitor @gunslinger_life stayed at my side throughout the race, pushing me when I needed it, and holding me back when I was in danger of outpacing myself! Thanks, buddy: you're a champ!
And there's absolutely no way I could have succeeded without my parents' unwavering love and support. Diolch i chi'ch dau am drefnu popeth, fy mwydo i (a Freddie!) drwy'r penwythnos, a gyrru o gwmpas pan oddwn i methu hyd yn oed cerdded! Caru chi'ch dau. X
It's time to set my sights on my final challenge of #Epic2018: the Windsor Trifecta Weekend!
A Beast, Super and Sprint in just 2 days. Bring on the pain.
