Spartan Super: Chon Buri, Thailand – The Good, The Ridiculous, The “Come On, Man”

The Race – A Debacle of Astronomical Proportions

This is a very infuriating situation that was BECAUSE OF ME.  I couldn’t believe out FAT and out-of-shape I was for this race.  Did I feel fat? Well, the extra fat on my stomach is absolutely noticeable.  However, I think a lot of it had to do with the people I ran with.

The situation was much worse  this time because it was just a walk-a-thon.  In the first four KM, I wanted to quit.  I’ve never felt that before in my life.  I think 60% of it was because I kept looking back and never got into a rhythm in terms of running.  Two, I honestly have done only a few classes at my gym in one month.  That’s a recipe for disaster.  Normally I do two classes a week, but three classes are better.  I didn’t have anywhere near the amount of strength I had in the past.

This was a very sad reality.

When you’re able to Face What Isn’t Working, you’re able to think clearly about situations.  A day after the race, I’ve cleaned up everything.  Yes, I had that sugar craving and wanted my gummy bears, but I didn’t because I have a nasty image of what I’m becoming engraved into my head, and that’s the most terrifying part about all of it.  So, I just keep asking myself, “if I buy those bags of candy, I won’t be proving a god damn thing to myself.”
