Talk about jelly legs!!!
I thought it was about time to complete the beat the Olympian challenge at the gym, Steve Parry 8:05 for a 500m row, 1 mile cycle and then a half mile run
I know the individual times I wanted but hadn't factored in fatigue fully so the 500m row 1:36.... Blowing steam stepping off.... Onto the bike half way through I'm dripping in sweat the fatigue is kicking in and my predicted time getting longer..... Step off doing 2:34 I'm now really struggling, walking like I'm in rehab after a spinal injury, the head and legs aren't talking to each other, imagine having pins and needles in both legs numb as anything and waking...... So now I've got to do the half mile run in under 3 minutes 55..... I'm bearly walking camp hits the thighs I'm stretching out thinking f#%k!!!
I step on and blowing steam, check behind me in case I come off that the floor is clear..... This is tough I can normally get it for 3 minutes but I'm now a new born child walking for the first time and haven't any idea of my times on the events before....... ...... 3 minutes 40 seconds later I'm there blowing steam, cobwebs blow out the system and now a wreck... Dripping in sweat waiting to be told my time....... 7 minutes 50!!!! I done it!!!! But the part behind this story is more about support and how much do you desire to complete something.
I want to thank Collette Spinner for pushing me along the way as I've often found the case of someone shouting and pushing you along the way really really helps. I knew despite the jelly legs the run was going to do completed now matter what time. It was the case of completing what I set out to do.
So anyone there reading this with the will to get down the gym I want you to use this Wednesday as a time for me to shout at you and get that arse moving its world fitness day and you'll find me in Watford Leisure Centre Woodside
