I once read about Ryojun Shionuma, a Shugendo Buddhist priest who achieved two grueling feats of physical endurance.

First, for nine years during the May-September trekking season, he hiked 30 miles daily, navigating an elevation change of 4,000 feet. Every night, he would wake at 11:30 pm, shower in an ice-cold waterfall, dress in white robes, and hike from his base on Mount Yoshino to the summit of Mount Omine by 8:30am.
