Cardio, strength, core training, leg training….all of these things were done in bulk and now it’s time to put it to the test.
How do I feel going into the Spartan Super in Chon Buri, Thailand? I wouldn’t say nervous, but not really sure what to expect. Have I trained like crazy since my Spartan Spartan Sprint in KL? Nope. Honestly, I have done maybe two hard training sessions since mid-April. Either I’ve grossly underestimated this race and I’m in for a grueling 13km, or I took a chance and knew what I was going to be up against.
Spartans in Thailand are far different from Malaysia. In Malaysia, if you’re going to do a Sprint, you need to train for a Super. If you’re going to do a Super, you need to train for a Beast. That’s how difficult it is because the organizers set up the race on hills, rivers, gorges and so many other things. It’s ridiculously tough. So between now and July 28th, I will SURELY sign up with a gym and hit it hard.
Tomorrow is going to be not a test of will, but a test with the people I’m running with. I will warn them in advance that if in the event one person begins to walk, I told them that I would meet them at the finish line. I did not pay 66$ to walk. I can walk at home for free.
2) It’s 13km, but I have my energy gels and everything ready to go (oh, and just by writing this blog, I just reminded myself that I need to buy some armguards for the race. YES!).
3) Now that I think of it, I think I’m seriously underestimating this race and could be in huge trouble.
