Week 1 Recap: Off a strong start - made most of my progress over the weekend, but I'll take it!  Felt strong on my 4 mile run with about 1.5 weeks left to train.  Getting excited for the Sprint with high hopes of beating my time from last year.  Also time to get focused on my Mastering Leadership book - long way to go there before class on the 20th!

Week 2 Recap: Woof... this past week feels like a blur.  Definitely not in the position I wanted to be in leading up to my Spartan Sprint at the end of this week.  My fitness is definitely out of whack as of late, as I'm not able to balance work and family time to sneak in the runs and weight training sessions that I've been targeting.  Regardless, I'm still getting myself fired up for this weekend's race.  I'm ready for some adventure while pushing my limits.  AROO!

This week may not have been where you wanted, but you've put in the training before, and hopefully this week will be a little less hectic. Enjoy the race on Saturday.

Week 3 Recap: This past weekend I embarked on some fun and adventure and conquered the 2nd of 3 races towards my 2018 Spartan Trifecta.  The entire race was a blast, and I would have to say my favorite moment was successfully completing the rope climb and ringing that bell for the first time in my life and during a Spartan Race.  I am sore as hell right not and loving it.  Looking forward to recovering and getting back to the gym and getting after it.  AROO!

Week 4 Recap: Well, I can't say I wrapped this challenge up as I would like following my Spartan Sprint success.  I've been recovering from a nagging pain in my neck and shoulder from the Sprint, and decided to not push it for the sake of challenge stats.  Admittedly, I could have fit more runs in but wasn't able to get it done.  I did end the challenge on a high note as I completed my last module of my Leadership Coaching for Organizational Well-Being program.  It's tough to close the door on such an impactful period in my life, however it creates an exciting new beginning to explore.  Looking forward healing up my aches and pains so I can get back after it.

Good call on listening to your body. Keeping the longer picture in mind and giving your body the rest you need will make you stronger for the next Spartan.
