What I learned when I challenged a world record

What I learned when I challenged a world record

But at my lowest point, I learn that the human spirit can endure more than you’d think. After the initial feelings of foolishness and self-admonishment subside I find myself slowly renewing my determination. After all, I’d trained through injury before and got out the other side okay. Tearing my Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) in 2009; I took a risk to go through 15 and a half months of Royal Marines Commando training less than 5 months afterwards. With a highly unstable leg, there was a huge risk that it could be exacerbated, or at worse, really hammered to the point of needing permanent walking aides.
