In 170 days from now I will be taking part in my first Spartan Race. I recently read Joe De Sena’s book Spartan Up!: A Take-No-Prisoners Guide to Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Peak Performance in Life. After completing the book I instantly went to spartan.com and signed up for the race.
I recently crossed the five year mark of starting my journey. Every year of my journey I tried to push myself to new levels. To date the hardest thing I have ever accomplished was my first marathon and that was in 2012.
If I can be honest, after completing the marathon I was burned out. I started to lose focus and old habits started to creep back into the picture. I still had progress to make, but I became stagnant.
But that season has come to an end. The fire is reignited and I am ready to fight.
Here are my goals to achieve by March 7th 2015, the date of Spartan Sprint Race Atlanta:
- Lose 57 Pounds
- Cycle 75 miles.
- Be able to complete 10 unassisted pull-ups.
- Run a 5K in under 35 minutes.
- Complete my Spartan Race.
So here is to the next 170 days, it is time to do work!
