So we smashed the Men’s Health Survival of the Fittest 10k on Saturday! A team of 13 took part from work, tackling 10km and 50 obstacles to cross the finishing line on around two hours. I learned some very important lessons on the way around though, 90% of running is completely mental! I have never ran that sort of distance before, but the thought of getting over the finish line spurred me on no bounds. I also learned that upper body strength is a massive factor in running and so I’m going to have to take a dive into strength and resistance training to improve my speed and to get over those obstacles quicker!
So, well done guys – bring on next year!
