Todd was unfortunately unable to join the other musketeers on their run as he has been nursing an injury for the past couple of months. Whilst it’s very nearly healed, he decided to exercise caution and sit out the run due to its terrain and distance. Injuries are a common part this sport, however if treated correctly and responsibly, one can ensure they are back into full flight in no time at all.
Not one to EVER miss a training session, Todd head out on Brenton’s brand new mountain bike and covered over 70km of muddy, technical tracks. At one point Todd was reaching speeds of up to 60km off road! Much to Brenton's relief, the bike (and Todd) came back in one piece.
Whilst the team had best of intentions for a swim in the lake, everyone was wet, freezing and hungry. So after a quick walk through the icy water to recover the legs, the Musketeers head back to HQ for some good food and rest.
Part of this rest included a DVD… its called ‘13’. Don’t get it.. particularly if your nerve endings are a little frayed after a days training. Quite a disturbing movie that did not aid in relaxation.
The Falls Creek weather has not failed to disappoint. Known for its extremities, the Musketeers awoke this morning to snow!! The temperature is 0 degrees, however the ‘feels like’ factor is -6!
Not to be put off, the Musketeers will be wrapping up in their winter goodies and heading out on the mountain bikes for a session, ending up at the base of mount beauty where it is a more civilised 21 degrees. From here they will do around 3-4km in the outdoor pool down there, followed by a 15km run.
For the record, next week in Falls Creek (once the Musketeers have left) will be 35 degrees.
All for one!
