I have committed to learn and compete in a new sport next month: Highland/Strongman
That’s right…at 5’3″ and 135lbs I’ve been talked into rocking the kilt and throwing, holding and picking up heavy things. OH BOY…. As a warmup I’m heading down to Durniat Strength next Sunday to learn the events. Nothing like learning a sport on the fly. ha!
So what are the events?
Log Press for reps
Weight for Distance
Farmer Walk/Tire Flip Medley
Weight for Height
Specific weights for women have not yet been announced, but I’m sure they’ll be heavy. After all this event is a strength biased sport. Regardless of the weight or my outcome it’s going to be fun to get outside my comfort zone, meet a new community of people and throw heavy things.
