Training for Spartan Races and the 2103 Spartan Events
In the months prior to the 2012 Spartan Sprint in Tuxedo, most of my training was done at Eisenhower Park. A local park with one of those fitness trails and exercise stations every so often. Turns out, that those layouts area a pretty decent facsimile for a Spartan race. A lot of running with some obstacles (stations) mixed in. Of course these stations were about as close to the Spartan obstacles as juggling tennis balls is to juggling chainsaws....but let's not quibble. Even though the race was brutal...and well documented in a previous post...I did manage to improve my splits by around 5 minutes a mile. Ok, so I had massive room for improvement from 2011 but still...better is not worse!
