Interesting you put this on your training log. That might be unique on AP. Also noted that you did not put the gps trace on so we couldn't checkout your pace. Are you planning on putting up supermarket shopping as well - or do you sub-contract that out?

Not really unique. MessEngineer a former AP contributor used to log what her termed Mega Gardening. It routinely involved removing tree trunks and lopping branches etc. It was a way of keeping track of when he did what on his property and also his mum could see 'what he was doing'. At Easter 2014 he won his class and Blair was presenting the medals. Blair had a few words with MessEngineer on dias/haybale then with a huge laugh and smile Mess Eng returned to the group. He told me later that Blair had commented that the Mega Gardening must have paid off - oh and congratulations! MessEngineer knew who Blair was but was astounded that Blair made the connection and commented.

@BB I know in your household Liz does it all so not much scope for you to log

I've seen gardening on AP too (may have been Mess Engineer) and wondered what sport it was training for. Possible scope for a new reality television show, given the tripe we already get on there.

The mega gardening entries seemed to dry up around the time that someone who works in the field (not me) noted that some of the activities described therein may possibly have been in breach of various federal and state environmental laws.

Like any new sport - I am sure there will be growing pains in order to yield the fruits of our labours.
