Chicago Spartan Sprint: June 11, 2017
Indiana Spartan Sprint: July 8, 2017
The Spartan Races are a series of obstacles courses, each one longer and more difficult than the last. I am starting on the easiest one and I’m still intimidated. I’m doing it twice next summer with two sets of friends. I’ll be inviting spectators on my second one, since I’ll know what to expect and wont look like a complete fool flailing around out there.
Training: Weightlifting; Upper Body and Grip strength. Need to be able to pull my own bodyweight regularly.
Fight Club: Ongoing
Fight Club is the advanced boxing class at my gym, and my goal next year is to be able to join them.
Training: Boxing, what else?
