    Physical endurance inspiration


    Looking for it. What have you done? What do you do now? I'd like to run a marathon again. I'd like to include biking and swimming.
    Biking I'd kill it on the gym and swap around the levels but would slam it full blast then off....then full blast then off...and so on. I have a road bike and have used it for a good season. Swimming I managed to freestyle for 1 hour straight. After that I'd just do 1/2 hour sessions. This is all past and looking to get that fire back! Inspiration is the most awesome tool!

    You're in luck! These exist! They are called triathlons!

    Me? I lift things up and put them down.

    Competitive eating for me. I’m probably still a year away from kicking Joey Chestnut’s ass but I’m on a mission.

    Re: Physical endurance inspiration

    I was thinking that the shooting is inspirational to the skiing

    I know that based on most competitive nordic skiers I know, they also cross country run year round to practice

    another inspirational physical endurance is trail running.....Long Trail, in VT, sections of the Appalachian Trail, etc.

    Trail running is serious shit. A runner can't battle anything harder than a hill.

    Follow Ken Roczen on Instagram. You'll either be inspired, or feel like a giant piece of shit. I fall into the latter camp...

    I'm not completely sure, but I think loudbeard thinks maybe battling with a pit bull is harder than harder than battling with a hill, so he said...

    *shruggs* we are talking about being physically fit. A pit bull has nothing to do with it. I’m trying so hard to be nice here.

    Try downing 75 lava-hot chicken wings in less than three minutes. That’s a real battle. A pit bull is a walk in the park in comparison.
