You see, failing on my last challenge made me want to stop all of this! Just give up, it didn’t feel right (or fair) to fail at this part, at something that should be fun…
But after giving it some time and many thoughts, I remembered what I wrote for you all about how to do “it” the right way! And I came to realize that this is just a part of the grind that I will have to go through on this journey.
One more problem out of many that I need to solve.
So, with that in mind
I decided to jump back to the deep cold water and set myself a new challenge!
I think that just like me, you also want to reach a point in life that you can feel that you’ve accomplished something of a great value for yourself; to reach the mountaintop and put your flag on the highest point!
And my next challenge will be just that, but not in a metaphorical way, I’m going to physically put my flag up.
The Human Flag Challenge
This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, why? Well first it looks cool =) second, I really want to get back in the game and doing the human flag challenge, as difficult as it may be, will push me to train and work hard like never before.
So, it does not matter if I’d be able to get it perfectly right, it would be awesome, but, as long as I’m in the game and just doing stuff to move onward in my journey, I know I’m on the right way!
My goal for this one is to hold the flag position for at least 5 seconds with a good body position, my body should be in a parallel position to the ground.
I have 30 days to train hard and make it happen, as for this moment, I’m starting with only the technical understanding of what my body needs to perform.
My starting point is that I can’t lift my body with straight legs and most certainly can’t keep my arms extant, I have a lot to work on =)
Stay tuned for this challenge update on the 15th of Nov!
