4 x 4 x 48
This weekend, Marty and I decided to challenge ourselves. We both follow David Goggins (he is incredible, check him out!) on Instagram and he posted this challenge. Basically, we will run 4 miles, every 4 hours for 48 hours.
In David’s words, “While it doesn’t sound too difficult, after a while it becomes quite annoying! You are looking at 48 miles in 48 hours. The whole idea of doing this is to push yourself slightly outside of your normal routines and workout schedules, to challenge you mentally and physically, to experience a little bit of sleep deprivation, irritability, soreness and mild suffering.”
Marty and I both like to get outside our comfort zones whenever we have an opportunity so we decided to jump on this one. This will definitely be a challenge as far as blood glucose management goes considering the quick turnaround of the workouts and sleep deprivation. I have a feeling that lots of coffee is in my future!
Wish us luck & look for the follow up post to see how we did!
