Living Dangerously

I have just been watching a load of programmes on catch up and just finished Bear Grylls Mission Survive and The Island. Both programmes showing extreme challenges from the raft building, climbing, abseiling, trekking which I think I could do quite well at, however I am not so sure about the sleep deprivation, lack of water and food. Anybody that knows me well knows I have to eat regularly otherwise hangry Gemma appears.

So going on this week is all about extremes have any of you seen the Snowboarder being chased by the bear? I posted it on my Facebook page earlier on in the week. Now I was listening to Sam and Amy on Gem106 this morning and they weren't sure if it was a trick or not, but either way, I would want to be getting well out of the way of the bear.

This then got me thinking about other sports where animals have got in the way and added a danger element to them.

When I was in Australia and surfing you saw the shark planes flying overhead and it wasn't long ago that Mick Fanning punched a shark as he was in a competition. Certainly will make me think twice about going back into the water.

Now what would you do when it comes to living life for you next adventure?

How much are you willing to push yourself to achieve what you want to?

I love an adrenaline rush and would make sure that I am fully trained and prepared for my event whatever that maybe.

So keep in mind the next time you are training, what you could be facing when you go out into the real world for your activities.
