Getting fit for the apocalypse

About a year ago I took a long hard look at myself in the mirror and said “Gosh Darn it, LN, there is NO WAY you’d be able to physically survive a zombie apocalypse! Look at you! You’re obese! You can’t run! You have charisma–but that won’t last you long among the walking dead… What are you going to do about this?”

So I decided that getting in shape is KEY for zombie survival! So I joined Crossfit and fixed my diet and I’m now on the path of semi-success. (I can out-run some people in a 5K!)

Yesterday I did a little too much. Working out in the morning (partner wod!) jumping on a trampoline, hiking through completely wild terrain in the Seattle rain. I woke up this morning feeling like I got hit by a train.

I figure this was my experience:
1) practice at jumping high distances
2) running with weights in hands (don’t know how much a gun weighs– but I could probably run with one now).
3) Sandbag carries (I plan on getting better at this so I can lift a person fireman style)
4) Traversing through rough terrain quickly and nimbly!

Dan (travel partner) is really big into “StrongMan” exercises. Some of these include loading up a sled with a crap-ton of weights and dragging it to a different location. Obviously, all of these are very useful in the real-world during apocalypse time. I’m glad he’ll be traveling with me during Dec 21, 2012.
