Getting ready for the challenge
Have you walked a lot already? How much? How long?
Less than a month ago I decided to stretch my limits and enroll in the Oxfam Trailwalk Challenge Australia. What does it mean? Check it out:
“We're taking part in Oxfam Trailwalker, a 100km endurance walk or run from Sydney Harbour to the Hawkesbury, overnight, in teams of four, through the Australian bush.
We're doing all this as a personal challenge and more importantly to raise money for Oxfam Australia, who work to fight poverty and injustice in 26 countries around the world, including Indigenous Australia.”
If you want to donate to our team, feel free. Just click http://www2.oxfam.org.au/trailwalker/Sydney/team/211 and make your donation on line.
Well, to be able to do 100km in less than 48 hours and without dying, your friend here needs a little bit of training. So we started last weekend, doing 30km. It was beautiful and – I need to confess – easier than I thought. Let’s see how I behave in August, when the 100km come all at once.
