Regaining The Motivation  These are my feelings, but from the messages I have had over the year, it would appear that I am not alone. It seems a few of us have struggled recently with the motivation to train with intensity, consistently or with a purpose. Although 2020 probably gave most of us more time to train and many of us used this time positively to get out and about for daily walks, the motivation and goals to push ourselves hard may not have been there. If I am honest, Covid-19 did not sap my motivation or desire to push

MUUK-Adventures MUUK-Adventures Covid 19 Policy Introduction The long and short of it, Covid-19 caught us all with our pants down. When it struck and for the majority of 2020, We did not know what was happening and what was going to happen. And I think its fair to say that was from World Leaders down to the person on the street. For MUUK-Adventures, like every other small, medium, or large business in the tourism or Events industry it was worrying times and it still is. We had lots of prepaid bookings and lots of expenses already committed and it has

Well what a year!!! It has been 12 months of extreme, extremes. But we’ve had a real Wales Adventure, At times I was busier than ever before, then there were periods of mind-numbing inactivity. During these times, I experienced great highs and then there where days when I struggled to get out of bed and was void of any motivation and ideas. As a company, 2020 was our tenth year and to celebrate we had made lots of plans, with our group and event bookings full, the season was looking good. We had also planned to do our bit for

Events 2021 I want to stand alone in a crowd once more! In this day and age, we cannot be certain of anything, but I am pretty certain that come 2021 we won’t all be standing shoulder to shoulder belting out national anthems in sporting arenas. Or squashed onto a starting line of a mass participation event raring to go, which is all such a shame! Now I’m no expert and therefore might be wrong on that and there may be a huge U-turn around the corner and we are all taken back to carefree 2019. However, it would be

What to Do? We know that endurance sports test not only your character, but your ability to endure physical pain and mental doubt, they teach you a lot about yourself, and give people of all abilities and walks of life the chance to achieve something special and of course – overcome your limits! Now the beauty of “going long” is that there is no short cut to achieving your goals and no cheap way to earn a finishers medal or t-shirt. These mementos and accolades or even personal satisfaction are gained one way, by doing the hard yards. The training

2021 Muuk Ultra Running Series As we come out of lock down and the disaster that has been 2020. We want to be  positive and look forward to 2021. We want to give those that like to take challenges to the next level something to aim for and reignite any loss of interest, or even build on a any new sense of motivation that has crept in over these strange times with; The MUUK Ultra Running Series. It is our aim to create an Ultra Running Series in West Wales, That will see runners battle it out over a number

Covid-19 The Ultra Marathon It is a strange old time or unprecedented as they keep saying. Personally, I find it weird. Some days are good, positive, and full of ideas. Whilst others are bad, negative, and void of motivation. Luckily, the latter are in the minority but the longer this goes on the more stress and strain we are going to be put under as Covid-19 The ultra Marathon like no other runs its course. In my mindset, I am actually treating it a bit like an Ultra Marathon. Each announcement date is an aid station, just need to get

The FFS Podcast #1 We have teamed up with Sports Journalist Fraser Watson to create a regular Podcast. The FFS Podcast. Why FFS ? well the simple answer is the Fintan, Fraser Show. However in this currently climate we think the saying FFS fits the bill. The FFS Podcast will be aired once a week. We will be looking to discuss all things sport and endurance event related in Pembrokeshire and further afield. We have been planning or should I say talking about this Podcast for sometime. And what a time to start it. At the beginning of the Covid

What is beyond dangerous? To Cancel or not to cancel that is the question!!!! Do you remember when weekends were called Saturday and Sunday? but in this day and age, they seem to be called Ciara, Doris, Dennis and even Jorge as named by the Spanish Met Office (And I thought Brexit meant we could name our own storms!!) When we organise an event, its done anything from 9 to 12 months in advance, At this early stage all you can hope for is that the weather is going to be kind, for the sake of the competitors and marshals.
