Accepting a Challenge | This Could Be Crazy

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Hmmm...tough one thrown at me the other day. A friend wants to do an Adventure race. Fantastic! I have been wanting to do one for a few years. Problem? It's in one month and I'm not in shape to be doing it.

Sure, a month is plenty of time, right? Well...I have never been a long distance runner, more of a sprinter. The race ends with a 5k...after a 14 mile bike ride...after 8 Miles of canoeing.

Is this crazy? Maybe. Most of the beginners 5k training deals I see are a minimum of 9 weeks. Not to mention the biking and canoeing.

The friend that wants me to do this happens to be someone I have tried to get more active for years...and I do have 25 lbs to shed. So I'm doing it. The goal is finishing, not winning the dang thing. Although not finishing last would be cool.
