Ok, last year I vowed to complete the Spartan Race Trifecta… this entailed running a Sprint, Super and Beast all within the 12 month window of opportunity. Well… I did it, starting with the 2012 Spartan Beast (all 13+ miles of it in South Carolina), followed by the Georgia Spartan Sprint (3+ miles) and ending with the Super Spartan at Wintergreen Resort in Virginia.
This year I am stepping WAY out of the comfort zone and heading for the CrossFit Open beginning in February… it is going to take a LOT of work and a lot of dedication to make up for some of the exercises I have not completed yet. You know, double unders, muscle ups and many pull-ups.
This is my goal this year… for a glimpse of the 2013 Open workouts click here. Here’s the deal – we don’t know what is coming! Just like the Spartan Race courses, there is no roadmap. You get the workout at 5:00 pm PST on Thursday and you have until Monday at 5:00 PST to complete it to your liking (oh yeah, and videotape it!).
Oh the fun I get myself into! You can’t stand on the sidelines and Monday morning quarterback everything…
