    Did this after reclaiming headstand crunch record. One legged balance will have to wait for tomorrow. Going out for a 12 mile run.


    Comment on this entry:

    AndyWeaver: It hurts but compared to running 101 miles around a track in a day to win a bet, this is a piece of cake.
    AndyWeaver: Good job, had to add 5 seconds more because you are gaining.
    Worthster: nice one
