Yea, they are about the most disgusting thing you can eat. I do a lot of survival training, so I usually end up eating stuff other people would never think is food. your would be surprised what you could eat that's actually good for you but you would never consider eating. Once got dared to eat a praying mantis, one word of advice, always tear off the head and pinchers otherwise its a rough ride down haha.
The conditioning is nothing, it's hard at first but after a while you just learn not to care, its a means to an end. It's gonna burn, it's gonna hurt, your gonna be tired, it's gonna suck no way around it, just "embrace the suck". Running, just like calathenics, is a mental game. When your mind tells you your to tired, your to hot, your running to fast, you just tell your mind to shut the heck up. The human body can take just about anything, it's the mind that is weak. Control the mind, and you control the body. Don't set limits, that only limits your potential, I've seen a 180lbs man out lift 300lbs+ strongman, heck they go to him to train with, I train with him also. The first day I went he toke me outside to these tires and said "here, flip this 550lbs tire to the other side of the parking lot" I didn't know how I was gonna get that thing flipped. Now, I weigh between 137-140, I can flip that thing across the parking lot and back all day. I got a little saying I live by, it's taught me a ton:
"When your hope's gone, when you have nothing left, not one ounce of strength, not one ounce of energy. When there's no chance of winning, when no one would blame you for just laying down and dieing, when you don't "have to" keep going, that's when you find out who you are."
And also "That that doesn't kill you, only makes your harder". Oh and the word with the peanut butter, its made with no hydrogenated oils I'm told that's good, and makes it taste better or something. I guess the slugs are made with a lot of hydogenated oils. I'll post my workout later when I get done with it, gonna be kinda a light day.
