WOD Saturday 08.03.14

workout of the day WOD

The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.
– Robert Frost

Because there aren’t many paved roads on a Spartan Race course, try trail running once a week if you can. Don’t obsess about miles – just enjoy logging time in nature while moving forward with an elevated heart rate. If there are no trails nearby, try leaving the asphalt as much as possible by running through parks and fields when you see them. Keep your runs fresh by improvising.

The more irregular the terrain you run the more you will develop your stabilizing muscles and agility for a successful race day. Go slow, be careful, but challenge yourself.

Trail running – 20 minutes to 5 hours, with 10-100 burpees at halfway point.

Don’t forget to stretch.

Why Spartan Race WOD?

Because they are committed. Because they are hungry not to just show up and get through a Spartan Race, but they are hungry to show up and dominate the clock with a peak performance. Spartan Race is here to help you achieve your fitness goals.

As always, take the WOD as a general outline to best meet your current fitness and goals. We can’t dial into every Spartan’s workout schedule. Use these suggested WOD’s as a starting point to develop your own Spartan training regiment.

Please, always consult a medical professional before beginning or performing any of these workouts.

Teamwork is the ability to work as a group toward a common vision, even if that vision becomes extremely blurry.
