Goodbye 20s! Hello Super Spartan Race!!!
"But Metallman, you're crazy. January is next year. What are you doing training now?"
Yeah, well... Have you seen these races? Mud, fire, barb wire... These races can be brutal!!! They have some insane obstacle courses and are they definitely a physical challenge! Check out this vid to see how intense this can be!
As of today, I hold about 170 lbs on a 5'8 frame. Yup. I'm not a very big guy. But that doesn't deter me from getting it done! I need to start lifting some weights and get a little more muscle on this frame of mine. But not only that, I need to increase this endurance of mine too. I am good to run about an hour or so before I start to feel the fatigue set in. The Super Spartan race is a grueling 8 mile obstacle course. The website clearly says that the fastest time that one would complete the course would be about an hour and the longest one would take could be over 5 hours. Oh man... I'm shooting for anywhere between 1 and 2 hours. Is it possible? Don't know. But we'll see what happens when I'm there and ready to tackle the obstacle course.
What a way to usher in my 30th year, huh. So... who's going to join me?!?! lol Later!
