On Thursday I managed to obtain a free ticket for the ANT MIDDLETON MIND OVER MUSCLE FESTIVE on Saturday... I COULDN'T GO
It was an incredible experience and as it was near where my parents live I cycled up at 8am and cracked on all the way to 10pm. 8am Had a look around to see what was in store 9am We were greeted by Jay (the organiser) and introduced Ant Middleton on the stage where he announce his first SICKENER was at 10am 9.30am Had a try at shot putting and Hammer Throw at the Wounded Highlanders (soldiers injured in battle) area. Got a good chuck with a pretty hefty rock there's a good action shot on their instagram page (@wounded_highlanders) 10am Took on the SICKENER and ti was Awesome! BRUTAL! But Awesome! It involved having to quickly line up from shortest to tallest and then spilting into teams and remembering colour cones for different exercises. Somehow, don't know how 90% of the time we had the green cone which was hill sprints ALOT OF HILL SPRINTS!
Managed to get my cap signed (came with the goodie bag)smooch sweat on it now though (eww!) 11am Had to run into the woods, just in time to start bushcraft which was incredibly fascinating on how to start a fire using vaseline and a make up pad (also used birch bark and use a rock cake fungus as fuel).
12pm I then tried out on Krav Maga which taught us how to defend ourselves against knife attacks which is incredibly helpful
1pm - 3pm Tried out archery tag where I twisted my ankle on a tree stump (really wasn't bad just a little twinge) 4pm I took on the final SICKENER which was so much worse than the first this on involved carrying sandbags for the ENTIRE WORKOUT! 5.30pm This was the highlight of the day (besides meeting Ant and doing the Sickeners) I tired out 'First Man In' using BB Assault Rifles we were taught how to operate a raid in a building using all the marines codes and techniques. THAT WAS FUN! 6pm The Main Stage Party Commenced! 10pm Cycled Home while clouds of midges smacked me in the face. Got into bed where our dog hogged the entire thing. Blinked and it was 9am the next day!
