So taking on these 24 events hasn’t been a worry free undertaking. So I thought I’d share some of my concerns with you about some of these events.
Eliminator Race – This is an unknown race, its new, now the promo video quite frankly terrifies me! Stuck in the mud comes to mind!
Nuts Challenge – This recently got voted the toughest course! Need I say anymore?!
Brighton Marathon – I have high hopes for this and I really hope I manage to do everyone proud and smash my PB. I’m praying I enjoy it more than I did Edinburgh, if not its going to make the following 2 even harder!
Dirty Dozen – I’m excited about this and also terrified. I’ve been watching all the videos that Doug makes on youtube and I know that many of these obstacles are going to really test me. But thats what this challenge is about! Pushing myself!
Tough Mudder- I know theres a number of obstacles that involve being submerged. I am not good at the whole submerged thing. It stems back from a bad memory when I was in year 6 at school. I’m even worse at being submerged and having to go underneath something. If anyone has suggestions for getting over this I’d love to hear them!
Dirty Weekender – I’m mega excited about this but also rather nervous about it, its going to be absolutely EXHAUSTING. 20 miles – 200 obstacles? Don’t get me wrong I’m pretty fit, but thats something else right?
Liverpool Marathon – This is only 8 weeks after Brighton Marathon, which means I won’t have been able to do a full training plan. I am quite worried how that will affect things. I’m also concious that after Edinburgh it took about a month before I recovered anyway!
Spartan Sprints x 2! – For these I really have to get practicing burpees! I know of a few obstacles that I can’t ever imagine being able to complete! The rope climb, how an earth do you practice that?! Monkey bars I am bound to fail at! I’ve heard so much about these races but I’m also terrified!
Zombie Race – Imagine the scene, a thorpe park horror maze, a terrified 18 year old and a poor chap in front of her being almost strangled by how tightly she was hugging onto his jacket! I HATE anything that makes me jump or jumps out at me, or is generally scary. Being chased by zombies is like my idea of HELL! I am expecting to scream!
The thing is with all these challenges is I can push myself and face these fears. But for families who have been affected by SIDS they wake up every day and their worst fear is a reality. Their baby died. Nothing will bring them back. The Lullaby Trust support those families as well as funding vital research into SIDS.
