What a Week So Far!

It actually started last week on Saturday. I had an amazing time at my first Spartan Race. It was a 4 mile sprint at the Tuxedo Ridge Ski Resort in New York.



 I had to run up and down the mountain at least four times. Carrying, dragging, lifting, climbing, pulling, and crawling.

It was an awesome experience!

After, a SPARTAN!

The result?  

Spartan Sprint Stats

I was super sore after that race and utterly exhausted. I took a few day off to recover.

After that on Wednesday I went for a run. I was shooting for 4.5 miles but was feeling inspired so I went for 5. I went a little later than I normally do and it was a nice change.


I felt really good and I think it showed in my times.

5 June 13 Run

My next runs are on Friday and Saturday. Not sure if the weather will support but if not, I’m hitting the dreaded treadmill AND getting back into my morning workouts!

  3. Lee A Jackson

    Wow, all power to you! Great achievement!

  4. Congratulations! Hopefully, I’ll see you at an event some day. How’s the fatigue issue? I know last time I commented that it might be a product of not-enough water.

    • Also, let me know if there’s anything I can write about to help you in the future.

  5. Looks like a lot of fun! 🙂
