Hundreds of years from now, it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... But the world may be different because I did something so bafflingly crazy that my ruins become a tourist attraction.
I just saw that. Unbelievable. There are an infinite number of planks with varying degrees of difficulty, but doing any of them for that long is just incredible.
Hood said the phases of prolonged planking are similar to the walls one encounters while running a marathon.
"The burning will set in those elbows. The skin will break and they will bleed," Hood said. "When that happens, (my coach) talks me through it and I take lots of water and eventually they go numb. When the numbness sets in, I'm generally pretty good. It's just a matter of being tired and wanting to stop."
It's not an adventure until something goes wrong. - Yvon Chouinard
