2) It may force you to do things you physically can’t do.
You know what scared me the most in this week’s episode of The Walking Dead? When poor Jerry got stuck in the tunnel as a trio of walkers started encroaching on him. Legit, I was saying “Oh no. NOT Jerry. If Jerry dies, I riot”, and, between that, and the poor guy having to hold up a huge frigging log to try to stop the mine from collapsing on everybody, it got me thinking: How many people would not be able, physically, to DO either of those things?
Seriously, could you squeeze yourself through a hole that narrow, Or, hold up a log that heavy? I hope so, because…the apocalypse may just ask you to do those things.
You see, you don’t know what you might encounter — What kind of situations you’ll be thrust into — in the apocalypse. Things you might think you’d never have to do, you may find yourself with no choice but to do them, or else get bitten (Or even eaten) by the undead.
This is why I’m always saying “Survival is both a marathon and a sprint. Train as such”, because, if you are in the best shape possible, you’ll have the best chance of physically doing whatever survival is requiring you to do.
Once you get into a zombie apocalypse, the idea of “impossible” kind of loses a little oomph. You might just see the impossible, and you might just be asked to do the impossible, too.
