How about the challenges?
The challenges along the way were, the heat and subsequent dehydration issues, lots of sunscreen wide hats and lots of drinks, our supporters all dressed in Shake It Up Shirts, kept the public informed of what we were doing and why,
The other challenge was getting 3 reps done by about 7am after a 5am start. this ensured that we had a finish time of 12.30pm for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in which we did 9 reps each day.
Thursday we did 8 reps and Friday 7, the last few on Friday were challenging, it was hot, we were tired, and thankfully Kerri and Clair joined us the help us through. very sore legs, feet, hips, sunburnt, but very happy to have gotten through, the last few reps really were a trudge
Difficulties were a lot of fatigue, muscle soreness, and keeping up our hydration.
We took each day as a goal, rather than look at the 42 and be freaked out, so today we have 9 or 8 or the last day at 7, we kept moving knowing that each step got us closer to the end
