And I was told that of the three races held so far, I had joined the toughest!
I believe that. This is probably twice the difficulty of Viper Challenge. 20 kilometers with 30 obstacles, with a lot of windy uphill and unforgiving terrain. Rain made an already tough challenge, tougher. This made VP look like a walk in the park, really.
Starting the race with a 80% healed lower back injury, I was careful not to injure myself when attempting each obstacle, and when doing burpees for penalty I took my time to cautiously do the routine as to avoid the sharp pain on my lower back.
I had failed at a lot of the obstacles and half way through the race, legs were giving in – and I consider myself someone with good walking and jogging stamina.
In all, it took me around 6 hours to complete everything. Crossing the finishing line to get the medal felt really good, and I thought it would take nearly forever to get there!
Not sure if I want to do it again. Right now I feel like getting a shower to wash off cakes of mud, treat myself to a solo pizza party and sleep for a century.
