Viper 2 Four

It has taken a week to recover in order to be able to write this post…but last weekend Kim Hong, Hui Mei, Amanda and myself competed in the 24 hour Viper Challenge – #Viper2Four.

Viper 2 Four started at 8:30am Saturday 5th and finished at 8:30am Sunday 6th…10km laps in and around the Malaysian jungle mud with around 15 obstacles each lap…we ran as a team of 4 where 2 people had to be on the course at anyone time…the intent is to complete as many laps as possible in 24 hours.

The top individual completed 15 laps while the top team completed 11 laps…we were down at 4.5 laps…OK not great but given outside of myself the team have never done anything like this it was a monumental effort…neither of the girls had run more than a few km’s before and now they both completed over 20km’s.  With my personal effort I was happy as I did the first 3.5 laps back to back, which meant a solid 35km’s, and I managed to complete all obstacles.  The half a lap was because lightening caused a quick break and so Amanda and I had to start again!!!

For Amanda another first was to spend her first ever night camping in a tent…was funny to see all these first as they are experiences that I just take for granted living in Australia.

Throughout the 24 hours we all had to tackle personal challenges…Kim Hong did muscle damage early on and yet still competed 30km’s…Hui Mei had to concur a 5 meter drop into deep water which is amazing when you cannot swim…Amanda had to manage to go over 3 hours without eating…and I had to put up with Amanda talking about food constantly for 3 hours 🙂
