SET YOURSELF A CHALLENGE, AND THEN SMASH IT
This was an excellent day. On Jan 28th me and 3 other clients took part in the Brutal Run near Newbury.
It was tough, and very, very muddy. Whether you think you can do something like this or not, the answer is always yes. My clients completed this in an excellent time; and at the end of the day you could always walk.
This run was pretty tough – it’s not called Brutal for no reason. There was waist high water to wade through, swamp to get stuck in, hills to climb; but it was well organised and we got battle oats at the end to make it all worth it. It is simply a massive rush as you cross the finish line, and everyone enjoyed it.
THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS, I HAD TO KEEP UP WITH THEM
Running is something that is considered a good indicator of fitness but it can be one of the most challenging forms of exercise available. Something i’ve always said is this:
Running does not make you fit, you have to be fit to run.
I openly tell my clients that I am not a runner. I take part in these myself because I find them a challenge. The biggest thing about this kind of event that motivates me, and my clients, is that we as a team are taking part.
I am very sure that right after this photo was taken I went back to my pained expression as I had to wade through the waist high mud and water. I spotted the cameraman early.
Over the course of the year there will be plenty of events organised for my clients that require a team entry. The first of these is the Rough Runner in April. Anyone reading this blog who wants to join, remember this:
WE WILL TRAIN FOR IT.
See you in the studio!
