September Over…Hello October!
Phew, September was crazy. Positives were that I got a bunch accomplished this month: a number of big talks, filmed a new memory video for Fusion IO, did a TEDx talk, competed in a Crossfit competition – the negatives were that it was hard to keep all my memory training in order because of being so busy. From now until December 14th though (the World Memory Champion), I’ll be free to train again like I used to. Finally I’ll have a lot of uninterrupted time.
I’ve been upping my training for my Everest climb this past month. Almost 6-7 times a week I’m in the gym lifting, running, sprinting, pushing, pulling, jumping, everything. I’m feeling VERY strong. Honestly, stronger than I’ve ever felt in my whole life. I can’t wait to throw my body at Everest and see how it fares. 2 years ago my training consisted of just running 4 miles 5-6 times a week and doing some meager lifting 3-4 times a week. I still did pretty well on Everest as a result, but I can only imagine how I’ll do now.
The World Memory Championships are in 2.5 months from now and that is my main focus. Stay tuned….I’ll be going over what the whole competition is like and the events that make it up.
