Hey, next weekend I’m going to do a very intense training challenge. I’m going to do something similar to what the Army Rangers or Navy SEALs do. I want to write my plans on paper before doing it and then make it my goal to survive the weekend and STICK TO MY PLANS EXACTLY AS WRITTEN. I’m doing this to push the limits of my mental abilities, and to see what I’m made of. I’m mostly inspired to do this because of reading Pat Tillman’s story.
What I figure I’ll do is get about four hours of sleep over three full days. I’ll do almost nonstop running, walking, pushups, situps, but I’ll probably give myself a couple of 1 hour breaks per day. Sleeping won’t be allowed during the breaks… maybe reading the Bible or just sitting still. My diet will consist of no solid foods. Only protein drinks. I’ll be sure to stay well hydrated… I’m not stupid.
Now my question is this… how will this affect my body? Will most of the losses be muscle mass and water? Will it hurt my strength? Or, since its just three days, will my body recover pretty quick? Also, if anyone has done something like this before, any suggestions? Anyone want to take this challenge and do it with me? We can come up with a plan, and sometime during the weekend call each other and keep each other from quitting.
