“You’ll know at the Finish line.” —The Spartan Race
When I ran the Super Spartan Race last month, my goal wasn’t to win. I just wanted to be sure I would be able to finish while not killing myself. That meant I had to prepare.
The Spartan Race publishes daily WOD (Workout of the Day) routines via email. Anyone can subscribe. They offer suggested routines to help prepare for the race and to stay fit. I often get ideas from these and incorporate them into my own. Here’s one of my favorites – I call it, the Spartan Fox:
1). Run 2.5 miles, preferably to a park.
2). Max-out on each of the following:
3). Run 0.25 miles
4). Repeat 2-3 one to three times.
5). Run 1 – 2.5 miles.
Think you can finish? Lol.
