Spartan Fun Run

On Thursday I hosted a Spartan Fun Run with some friends, old and new, of the FNRC.
Had to rep my Spartan headband

I know I've talked about Spartan before, but it is an obstacle course race with an added challenge. If there are obstacles that you're unable to complete, you must do 30 burpees. The plan was to run 3 miles with 10 burpees at each mile. (I didn't want to 30 burpees at each mile and scare everyone away!)

The group split up at the turn around as some folks were doing more miles but either way, it was fun to do the burpees together. I had found a Spotify playlist of the top 100 workout songs from Fitness Magazine that I had on full blast to keep us going during the run. 3 miles is the longest run I've completed since having Hank and I felt wonderful!

Burpee proof: mud on my face

After the 2nd round of burpees, I got some mud on my face; nothing better for Spartan training! I'll be participating in the Spartan Illinois Sprint event on Sunday, June 12. For Spartan training, I haven't been following a specific guide, but I have a few goals based on my previous Spartan experience.

1) I want to be able to run 5 miles comfortably
2) Practice burpees. I REALLY slacked off on this last time and it was painfully obvious during the Spartan
3) Work out that upper body. I've been trying to do some things around the house but I'm not really on a lifting program at the minute. I probably should start that...

Right now Spartan is having a deal for Mother's Day. Free kids entry with each adult entry. Also, 25% off gear with the use of the code SPARTANMOM.

If you're interested in finding out more, the Spartan creator is coming out with a second book, "Spartan Fit" as a follow up to "Spartan Up". The book is available on the Spartan website or Amazon.
