and sooooo, week 5 is gone. it has been a relatively uneventful week with only 2 somewhat major events.
i'm happy i managed to break the 10 minute barrier finally. 9:47 for 2.4km. a personal achievement that i'm proud of. thursday was quite shit. but all's good.
next week will be spent on an island where i stayed for the first 2 months of my ns life. wish me luck.
it has been a forgettable night
field camp week is over! while it has been tough, i'm just glad its over and done with. halfway mark reached. lets see how long more i can sustain.
three months in and i can safely say im still not entirely used to my loss of freedom. nevertheless, the thought that everyone else is going through the same thing as me brings some sort of comfort to me. knowing that i'm not alone in all of these brings strength when the chips are down.
3 weeks down, with field camp up next and i would have reached the halfway mark. i have no idea whether to push on after that. many before me have done so and survived. if any one doesn't know, i'm actually a pretty proud person. the knowledge that so many have gone through what i may go through in the future only serves to act as a reluctant motivation. but part of me is calling out, wanting to give it up.
its only 2 years they say, but 2 years can be a long time.
for now, i'll just have to suck my thumb and hope things turn out smoothly.
