Ran half a mile with Wenda and then ran to the gym, did my usual workouts, I'm realizing more how large a part breathing and technique of doing some of these workouts for longer reps. So I will figure that out, monkey bars are easy though and that's probably the hardest Spartan workout, well the weird handle monkey bars, fortunately my gym has a good simulation for that. But I want running low 6 minute pace to be recovery over 8 miles by the time of the race, and I want to be good enough at the obstacles that I don't even feel them.
So training shall continue, and when I get back from Romania I'm going to increase the load to every day, maybe one rest day per week. In Romania I will concentrate on running and core, and burpees.
I also worked out with Wenda tonight and we did a 5 minute burpee challenge at the end, I did 77 and she did 55. Spartan burpees include a pushup so it's a good leg and arm workout, I guess. Certainly was pretty tough. On the list for males my age the categories go hire a coach, do more burpees, healthy, and Spartan fit. Healthy is 70 and Spartan fit is 85 so I got right in the middle for my first time. When I come back for Romania I will try again and so over 85, and the next time I do it I will get 100 in 5 minutes.
