Be comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Sunday morning I got a little taste of what my up coming adventure will be like. I know it won't be easy and after Sunday's training session I can say it will be really tough.

But I'm really excited and can't wait to get going with the training and planing of my trip.

It's a lot of job to do before February. But with hard work I will get there.

I have lots of people around me who have given me a lot of advices and helped me into the right direction. I have got a lot of help from David Erixon and Niclas Bentzler ( )

They have done similar trips and knows the area very good.

Here in Australia I have Pat Farmer to help me with my training and everything else around the adventure.

It is very helpful to have somebody with that much experience to help me.


On Sunday morning we met at Maroubra beach at 5;30 in the morning.

Sunday have been my only sleep morning as I work 6 days a week at 4 am every day, But from this week i will have Wednesdays off as well.

I was very excited to get down there and start the training, at 6 am we had the tyres ready.

Wasn't sure what to expect of the morning but I thought that me maybe be doing 4 laps (4km) up and down, How wrong I were. 10 km, it is 10 laps up and down Maroubra beach. It took us 3 hours. It was so hard. Toughest part was the harness. It fitted me so badly, the harness was squeezing into my stomach just below my ribs and it was pulling from there. So painful.

But it wasn't any excuses, the workout had to be down and as Pat said it is not going to be any easy ways to get through this journey, it will be hard and uncomfortable out there.

- You have to be comfortable with being uncomfortable .

It is so true. I just had to ignore the harness and my sore stomach that is so bruised today.
