#011: 🙌 Pushing Past Limits: My Journey to the Spartan Super 10K

I just started training for a Spartan Super 10k race (that’s 6.2 miles if you’re not into racing).

Training for this race has been challenging because I’m not a runner. The longest I’ve ever run without stopping is just one mile.

But I really want to push myself out of my comfort zone and achieve this goal.

To keep myself accountable, I joined a group of friends doing the race.

I paid for the event upfront and told them I was in, so there’s no backing out now.

Admittedly, I’ve thought about backing out several times over the past few weeks. I was stressed because I didn’t have a training plan tailored specifically for this race.

So, I did some research and created a training routine using the resources on Spartan.com.

After finding a routine that worked for me, I made some modifications based on my personal preferences and needs.

My training plan includes long-distance running, cross-training, speed and agility drills, and bodyweight strength exercises.

It’s been tough, but I’m excited to see my progress in the coming weeks.

A few takeaways worth mentioning:

  • Accountability: Committing to a challenge and having people hold me accountable is one hell of a motivator
  • Preparation: Tailor my training specifically for the event has reduced my stress levels & increased my confidence levels
