Good luck CJ. I cannot offer but wanted to wish you all the best!
maybe some upper body weights..............normally runners wouldn't use their top half much.but to push the wheelchair it would involve quite a bit..........
you haven't got time to adjust so i imagine its going to be hard...........pushing all three kids around ion a shopping trolley might be closer to the weight than a pushcahair....not that i'm advising this........
For those that want to read...or are curious...
I've started telling the story about pushing my uncle.
Well I've done 5ks pushing a pram...which is obviously easier than what you intend to do. One thing I would say though is that you tend to lean forwards QUITE a bit more. So I think a few training runs are required with the wheelchair if only to see if you can run in that 'position' for so long. GOOD LUCK.
I have just started training pushing my disabled stepson in a wheelchair and could really use the voice of experience. Would you be willing to give me some advice please?
I have now completed my first race pushing Owen in a Sports wheelchair and although it was only 15K it was an awesome experience!
