Insight into one first-time athlete’s training and preparation to get ready for a Spartan Trifecta.
A few people close to me gave me that typical “are you crazy” look when I told them my plan. I won’t lie, that same question crept into my mind once I got the confirmation email. The race is still a few months away, but once I got that email, pre-race jitters were already making themselves known.
Thanks to some advice from friends and family that do run regularly, along with some added insight thanks to the wonders and powers of Google, I put together a running schedule to complement my lifting schedule. The schedule gradually takes me from 2- to 3-mile runs to a respectable 13-mile run about halfway through.
