In 2010, my 39th year I tried to fit in as much physical challenge as I could.
Within 12 months, I completed two ironman, ran 4 marathon and swam the English channel.
However, I failed to achieve my full list of 010 goals because I didn’t do ironman WA.
(my body took several months to recover from the english channel swim and I took a break from training)
I turned 40 on January 10th.
For the past two years, I have secretly planned on climbing Mt. Everest my 40th year.
Only two people knew about this goal.
I didn’t share it because I knew people would tell me its too dangerous, and be negative about it.
I didnt tell people I was “gonna” climb Everest because I didn’t want to talk about it, I just wanted to do it.
Many people want to do something and talk about what they want to do…
but few people put their words into action and do what they talk about.
Over the Christmas holiday, Sophie asked me not to do this challenge in 2011 because I can’t be away from the office for up to 2 months — so I decided not to climb Mt. Everest in 011.
But as it’s my 40th year, and I am not going to achieve what I said I would do this year, I need to do a challenge which is Mt. Everestlike…
From tomorrow, I will start training for a physical challenge which is unlike any other, and much more difficult than anything I have even thought about doing.
Although it’s not potentionally hazardous like climbing a mountain, my challenge is going to be much more physically difficult than even climbing the worlds highest mountain.
I have 9 months to train and one month to taper in order to be able to achieve (complete) my challenge.
I will announce the challenge in April.
To help me focus and become consistent again with my training, I will re-start the training section of this blog tomorrow.
Surely, there is a reader of today’s blog who is not in as good of physical condition as they want to be…
Surely, there is a reader of today’s blog who is not living up to their potential.
Don’t just sit around and dream about what you are going to do…
Go out and make it happen.
