Meet the Challenge!
Lifestyle, Physical, Nutritional and Event Challenges undertaken by resident TrueSapien Ben.
Spartan Racer, Ultra Runner, Challenger of Life. I got into sport later in life than some but I’ve never let that be an excuse. Swimming, skateboarding, powerlifting, cycling, running, Obstacle courses, endurance, boot camps, ultramarathons have all crossed my path and they all have one thing in common. They challenge me. Anyone that knows me will attest to the fact that I am a VERY competitive person but your toughest competition is always yourself. My goal is to push my limits to the breaking point, pick up the pieces and push them again. I will fail, probably more than I succeed, but I won’t stop.

Seeking challenges and facing challenge is critical if we want to successfully pursue our TRUE potential. If we want to live life to the best of our ability you must repeatedly challenge yourself. It plays a vital role in personal progress and growth. If you challenge yourself it forces you outside of your comfort zone and provides opportunities for learning, development, and self-improvement. Engaging in challenges can lead to numerous benefits, both in personal and professional aspects of life. Without challenge, how are we really going to discover what we are capable of?

Aligning your beliefs and values with and being part of a wider cause can have a significant, positive impact on motivation to achieve your physical challenges and your fitness goals in general . Virtual Running Clubs, Running Clubs, Lifestyle Movements and others offer a sense of camaraderie, community, support, and shared knowledge. In addition, the sense of belonging to a group pursuing a shared or very similar objective, can be highly empowering, uplifting and motivating. So why is this and how can you benefit from being a part of a community or movement with a common belief or interest? Benefits
Hi I’m Matt Wilkinson, (or @themightywilko on Insta). I’ve always loved a challenge, whether it was swimming for my town as a young teenager, racing mountain bikes at Uni (and smashing myself to pieces when I fell off!), or climbing Kilimanjaro. My History I’d never been much of a runner. I did it, but mainly in order to play other sports. That started to change when I went back to Uni in 2010/11 and signed up to run the London Marathon. My single goal there was to beat a friend of mine who had been in the Navy, a feat
Welcome to the third and final part of the account of my participation in the C19 Challenge. A way I thought I could put my personal challenges to some good use and help raise funds for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. The idea of these short, bite sized workouts, is to put everything into each and every one. They are as demanding as the effort you put into them, proving home workouts can be simple, short but still effective. Let’s see how the final 3 workouts went. Workout 5 (09/11) 20 minutes, as many rounds as possible 10 Leg
Part 2 of my participation in the C19 Challenge, having decided to put my personal challenges to good use by raising some money for Royal British Legion. Remember, the idea is to put everything into these simplified, mini workouts. They may be short but if you put it all in then they certainly are demanding! Let’s see how the next 2 days went… Workout 3 (07/11) ‘Chipper For Time’ 100 jumping lunges (each side), 80 butterfly sit ups, 60 burpees, 40 jack knives, 20 side to side press ups (each side). If I’d been fresh this workout would have been
I decided to support the C19 Challenge and put my personal challenges to good use by raising some money for Royal British Legion. These workouts are designed with simplicity in mind so they can be done at home. But don’t be fooled…..they are tough! The idea is to put everything into each one and leave nothing out there! So let’s see how it went. Workout 1 (05/11) 22 minutes, as many rounds as possible 20 Hollow Rocks, 5 Chest to floor, 20 Unweighted Thrusters, 5 Chest to floor. Overall this went well. Nice mixture of movements and the Hollow Rocks
The challenge was simple. To not eat or drink, other than coffee and water, for a 48 hour period. The thought behind it My 48 hour fast challenge isn’t about following any sort of trendy fad. It was nothing to do with ‘detox’ or anything to do with intermittent fasting. So why did I fast for 48 hours? Simply to see if I could do it. How it would make me feel, physically and psychologically and to test myself. The planning (or absence of it) 5pm on a Thursday evening. Finish my meal and decide to start the 48 hour
The challenge is simple. To set a 5K run PB. There are many conflicting opinions on PB’s and their relevance to achieving long term goals. That’s not for me to discuss here. There can be no argument though, that as an occasional and planned measure of progress, they do have their place. Background Having spent most of this year confined to the house with only occasional training runs outside my training hasn’t been ideal. Coupled with no races to really hone that running fitness, it’s left me flat and slightly bored of training. However this seemed like the perfect opportunity…...
