5 Days of Recovery Time

5 Days of Recovery Time

After a crazy few weeks of work I’m in recovery mode. Whether it be working or training for an event, recovery time is important. I’m in sleeping, eating and relaxing mode at the moment. I’ve taken the last 5 days off to recover and relax. Tomorrow the work starts again. Contacting potential team mates, researching the route and stepping up the search for a vehicle.

Yes Man Challenge – The Outdoor Adventurer

While I was on my South American trip in 2010/11 I lived by a simple rule. ‘While on my travels if anybody offers me the opportunity to do any outdoor/extreme adventure activity I will say YES’ In the spirit of this way of life, I plan to continue with this approach and follow the lead of the Yes Man, Mr Danny Wallace.
