The Twilight Run ‘N Gun 2018 – Part II is on the 27th, 15 days from the day this is published. My rifle is already set up. I know what gear I’m going to run. I know what I’m going to change and I think I know what to expect. My real concern is that I’m not giving this situation the gravity it deserves. I feel less stressed about it than I did at this point last time, and that concerns me.
In short: I’m worried that I’m not worrying enough.
My main fear is the same as last time: my conditioning. Last time I thought that my training schedule was messed up. I didn’t realize how stable it really was. I’ve had to really find new and novel ways to find time to train for this event. The gym I go to has an indoor olympic swimming pool that I’ve been making use of during my lunch break for about the past month or so. Swimming and running use completely different muscles, but I can get pretty winded swimming 300-400 meters. Conditioning is conditioning, but I’d still rather be running. I’ve got the next 6 nights free of excuses to not go and get my run on, and the following 8 should be easy to make. I wonder why I never thought to just go run at lunch, instead of swimming. I’m kind of an idiot some times.
I’m still hitting the range for a solid session (like this one) once a month, plus I’ve got a Practical Rifle competition (like this one) this weekend to use as a dry run/dress rehearsal. The gun stuff doesn’t worry me as much as the running aspect.
There are still a decent amount of spots left, so hop on and register here: https://practiscore.com/twilight-run-n-gun-1/register
See you next Friday
