I was so shocked when I found out I need to go to New York for my karate event on March 31!! I have been expecting this trip some time in June or even in July. Unfortunately, this is happening much sooner!
To me, it means change of plans: I can’t just randomly exercise. From now on I will have to TRAIN really HARD and basically push myself to the limit. I need to combine physical strength and conditioning exercises to get into the best shape of my life.
I’m going to continue my high knees challenge, however in addition, I’m going to add another cardio challenge. Here are my possibilities:
1) I’m going to hit a treadmill 2-3 times a week and do 1-2 miles walking/running and try to beat me time each time;
2) There is a hiking trail near my house, which is about 2 miles long, so I’m going to visit that 2-3 times a week and hike/ run it as fast as I can, and also I will try to beat my record each time.
This is just a beginning…
In other words, I will have to prepare my body for an enormous physical test. Within the next 3 weeks I will be training harder than ever, so keep checking if i’m still alive 🙂
