27 days to absolute insanity…

24 02 2012

Here begins a whole new count down. Starting from today, and including today, I have 26 days to train and prepare for a 10km run. I have never run before, well not races or fun runs so this is really stepping out of my comfort zone. I know I can do this, I am the master of doing crazy shit, and of all the crazy shit I have done in my life this is by far the… umm…  sanest, I guess.  I am also naturally suited to endurance tests, and have often walked many kms.  Sure, this is different, this is running, and there will be a time allocation to finish said kms in.  I am going to do this come hell or high water, because I have, now, told everyone I know, and I can’t back down on a challenge, question is; A) will I finish???  B)will I be alive afterward??? Probably not for a few days anyway.  Any volunteers to help me recover?  But beside my stubborn nature and silly pride, I am doing this to prove that anyone can achieve anything if they commit body, mind and soul.  I need to also prove this to myself.

Tonight I hit the treadmill running, mainly to establish what my current ability is so I can pace my 26 days of training from that, then I will be hitting butt and tummy with a vengeance, and as always… reward myself for working so damned hard with a leisurely 30 laps in the pool.

Any tips on training and diet welcome, and of course support and words of encouragement always appreciated.

Live Strong, Live Healthy, Keep the Faith!
