I’ve been adding in Spartan Training slowly with everything else I’ve been doing, and last month I started working on the official Spartan Elements Training Program. It starts of super easy with light jogging and bodyweight squats and planks. Not too hard, right?
Not hard, but still requires dedication. I found that with each week being so ‘simple’, I wanted to procrastinate and ‘save’ it all for one go, which just ended up being annoying when I realized I was on the last day of the week and I hadn’t done them yet. This month I’m breaking it down early to have smaller daily sections to work through instead.

This second month is all about push ups and lunges. I might slip a few days, with my half marathon training being at an all time high, but we’ll see how much I get through.
