I asked for advice. Within 60 seconds of posting, Patrick Mahoney challenged me to "Do a 50 mile Saturday (or Sunday, or weekend; whatever the right day/goal is). Any combination of biking running walking up to 50 miles."
I called him a bad word that I wouldn't say in front of my kids, then accepted.
As any Hollywood exec would tell you, the "weekend" is Friday - Sunday. So, from this minute (early Friday morning) until I lay my sweaty head on the pillow Sunday night, I will walk, run and cycle a total of 50 miles.
|I have the bike. I have the gear. I have the "killer" attitude.|
To give you some perspective, I have never ridden my bike longer than 35 miles. And I didn't ride 15 miles the day before or after either. So, this is a SCARY NUMBER for this Clydesdale.
This post hits Friday morning. I'll post again Sunday night, letting you know that this got done. Barring a car accident or a life/death tragedy, this WILL get done.
Who's with me? Pick a scary number of workout minutes or mileage, post it below and circle back on Sunday night to let us know how you did.
P.S. If I am doing this, you'd better believe that Samson is going to get in some mileage this weekend too! Saddle up, Son!
P.P.S. Between now and Monday morning, let's use one of the ideas below for a short term challenge. I see a lot of 100 Day chatter out there, which takes us to year-end. I may jump on soon, but for now, I still need some near-term challenge to fire me up over the next two weeks.
