That feeling when you wake up Monday, go to work, and realize you missed your weekend post!
Keeping that in mind, my Spartan race is this Saturday. I have no idea what to expect or how I will do but there’s only one thing left for me to do to prepare.
Rest! If you’re training for anything physically intense, train early and often. However, as the date approaches, you have to slow down. The last thing you want is to be sore or risking injury to yourself on the big day. You want to be rested, comfortable, and loose. Sleep well, eat right, and take it easy. You want to be feeling 100% for the event.
So what’s the plan? Making sure I eat good food that you don’t prepare in the microwave for several minutes. Go to bed a little earlier each night so I can make sure I get enough sleep. Lastly, just enough exercise to move blood around- easy walks, light weights, lots of stretching. Keeping these things in my plan, I’ll be as ready as possible. Wait a second, I can check youtube to learn about the obstacles and see the type of things I can expect.
I’m betting this race is going to be super fun even though I’m nervous and a bit anxious as the day approaches. It’s one of those things that is pushing me out of my comfort zone into new experiences. I hope you’re looking for something new to try out. In fact, hit the Contact Wuffles link to the left and let me know what sort of new experience you’re after. I could always use new ideas!
