Goodmorning Everyone, and happy Sunday to you all.
It’s 7:19 AM right now and I feel great! Normally during the week my wake up times read: 6 AM, 4:30 AM, 6 AM, 4:30 AM, 6 AM, and 6AM, so on Sunday when I finally get to sleep in (that whole extra hour) it seems to make the world of a difference.
This Sunday means that I am only 6 days away from my second Spartan Race. If you saw my previous post’s video, you know that I’m pretty excited. I have been waiting for this race since the day after last years race. I cannot believe how close we are to it now.
I love it so much for a few reasons. One, my entire gym races in it as a team. This year, we have 50 people running as one. In my opinion, this is awesome. We drive up there together, we stretch out and enjoy pre-race festivities, race in the same heat, and finally party on after the race. Not only that, but our environment and workouts the weeks leading up to the race is on another level. This week alone, almost everyone of our WOD’s included high volume burpees. No lie, counting Monday-Friday’s WODs, we did well over 700 burpees total. And that’s not just me, that’s each gym member did 700+. I love it, it just creates for such a fun time.
Another reason why I love this race, the actual course is great. The race is held at the Amesbury Sports Park which has a beautiful lay out. It has the perfect mixture of hills, flat land, wooded area and dry land. Spartan does an excellent job setting this course up. Also, the barbecue after is a blast as well. They have so many games and photo opportunities, you can’t help but enjoy yourself 🙂
So there it is, my Sunday Confessional. I cannot wait till Spartan. I hope my team and I dominate this years event. Enough about me though, how is your Sunday going? What’s on your mind??
Keep setting the bar high
CHASING THE TOP!
