Just did a Warrior Dash this past weekend. Achieved better results during this race. I guess I did learn something from The Spartan Race back in June. Finished a 3 mile course in just over 35 minutes. Looking back, I think I would have done it under 30 minutes if I ran the same course again. That would have easily placed me in top 50 overall. But I placed 276 out of 4868.
This course was much easier than The Spartan Race, but hills were much steeper. Quads were doing all the work as I could feel lactic acid build up. Obstacles weren’t as challenging. I think this is where I made up all my time. Running earlier in the day also helped, 11:30am vs 4:30pm.
This is not a review of the race, or the course, but more like a note-to-self and a reminder that if I train hard and apply lessons learned from training or competitions, the results will follow.
