Tire flipping

As if towing a tire wasn’t tough enough, I had to add in a tire flipping session.  The rules are you can only move the tire forward by flipping it end-over-end.  That’s it.  And move it 1km (0.6mi).  It took me 1 hr 39 min to complete.

It had to be one of the slowest ways to move forward ever.  Looking at a speed bump for 15 minutes in the distance seemingly getting no closer was both great physical and psychological training for the Antarctic experience.  There, mountains and objects in the distance will take days to get to, as the air is so clear.

It was a killer on the quadriceps and lower back.
