WOD – totally ready for the Spartan Race

I’ve decided to post two weeks in a row (I think it’s been two weeks at least) .

It’s amazing how productive one can be while bored at work.

Not only am I being creatively productive, but I am risking everything being on this website during work hours.I know. I know, I’m so dangerous.

Speaking of dangerous, I have been going to the gym regularly. Now I know what your thinking, “Rikki, how is that dangerous.”Well it’s not, I am just lacking a creative transition

As promised, I said I would try a recommended workout provided by the Spartan Race WOD emails. Below is the most recent WOD I tried. This is what I was supposed to do:

Main Set
Run 1/2 mile
20 Burpees
50 lunges (each leg)
3 min. plank

Run 1/2 mile
40-40jumping jacks (total of 80)
40-40 pushups (total of 80)
80 air squats
1 min. side plank (each side)

Repeat 5x if signed up for the Beast race

Below is what I actually did:

Main Set
Jogged 1/4 mile
20 Burpees
50 lunges (each leg)
1 min plank

Jogged 1/4 mile
40-40 jumping jacks (this was my rest)
40 push-ups (screw the other 40)
80 air squats
Made executive decision to forgo the side planks



Needless to say, I was a little overly ambitious with this weeks WOD choice.
In my defense I do work until 7:00pm and then have to commute 35 miles, so I just wasn’t in the mood to stay late at the gym. My version of this WOD still took 45 min.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m totally ready for this race.

So my new goal is to actually do this WOD by the end of next week. I don’t care if it takes me all day; I will get it done. Maybe not the 80 pushups; that’s just over kill, and my arms don’t need to get any bigger than they already are (because, you know, I’m so buff).

Til next week my friends!
