My Activity Tracking
My target 42kms
The 24 Hour Challenge White Ribbon Fundraiser has begun
In a 24 hour period I will be taxing three dramatically different systems in one day to raise awareness of violence against women and children in our society.
500lb (226kg) Squat
The squat is my first physical task of the 24 hour challenge & is my strongest event. For context squatting 226kgs is like me lifting three averaged size friends on my back.
The Sub 5 Minute Mile
With a 4:58 mile already under my belt I am close to achieving this part of the challenge & yet only 2 seconds off from missing it altogether. This is one part of the challenge which will truly come right down to the wire.
Having not run a marathon in over a decade & weighing almost 20kgs heavier this final leg of the challenge will be as much mental as it will be physical.
Sunday 10th October 07:00 - 14:00

Half way to goal
Feeling pretty invincible at the moment.
12 days straight of training; 16 hours of gym work & 45kms in the legs already for the month of April.
The body is embracing the load well & backing it up daily.
We will see how tomorrow’s 4am gym session goes 🤢
Even more importantly the fundraiser is going from strength to strength thanks to so many kind & incredibly generous people.
I can assure you it is this support & kindness that keeps me pushing through the training sessions when the hurt sets in.
Consistency is Key
Preparation for this challenge isn’t all just squats, sprints & kms in the legs.
It is also recovery, sleep, nutrition & stress management.
A fundamental & integral part of any challenge or exercise regime is ensuring you get ample sleep & plenty of nutritious foods.
I have been tracking these four integral elements for the same length of time as I have been training for this challenge.
Remember consistency is key.
Huge month of training finished off with a solid week of work & effort.
220kg squat this week, 5min 12sec mile & a 90 min 15kms.
I put 102kms into the legs for the month of March & 26hrs of gym work.
Mile Sprint Training
Solid track session this week.
Over shot lap #1 which ruined each lap after that.
Not like me to go to hard to early hahah
1.14 is the magic number on each lap for a sub-5 minute mile.
Training Update 💪🏻🏃🏻5 months into consistent training for this challenge & although the individual components are all there I’m starting to feel beat up & sore.
