Rainy Friday night = gym time!

I just love watching The Biggest Loser on Sunday morning, while having an omelette and a cup of java. Now, off to the gym.
I started playing the guitar back in October. Making progress with the guitar; the vocals still need a bit of work (going to a singing lesson taster session in four weeks!)
No. 53 of 1372 in Survival of the Fittest
I ran Men’s Health - Survival of the Fittest 2012 today, coming in at number 53 of 1,372 overall!
I’ve always considered myself a long distance runner, favouring the full marathon over its shorter brothers and sisters, but with results like these I am tempted to switch up my routine!
Survival is a 5k adventure race, i.e. an obstacle course. Obstacles include: crawling through ice cubes, climbing through a car, scaling an 8 feet wall, carrying beer kegs and sand bags, crawling in mud under wire (luckily not barbed), jumping in and out of containers, running through and jumping through tyres, and a lot of jumping and climbing! And it was a hell of a workout! Is this what crossfit is like? I want more!
Kate’s my soon-to-be new guitar, a white Epiphone Les Paul Junior with a paintjob based on banksy’s rendition of Kate Moss hugging a teddybear.
This is just a mockup - I’ll have to post a proper photo once it’s all come together. I need to find someone to do the paint job, alternatively a vinyl to start.
I have been looking for a new hobby for a while, and I have landed on the guitar, after playing around with an acoustic a friend left at my place a couple of weeks ago. I am having so much fun with it! Then I discovered Rocksmith (which I have yet to order), which requires an electric guitar, so I figured why not. I’m really excited about learning a new instrument, I can’t wait till I get everything set up!
Oslo Marathon completed in 3:26:48. Whoop whoop!

From my hike to Gaustatoppen on Tuesday. Gaustatoppen is where Norseman Xtreme Triathlon finishes after a marathon to the top of the mountain.
I went to scout the location, hoping to some day participate in the race, but mostly to enjoy the view and have a great day out.
