So I lied.

“If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.”

ISpartan Running_PregnantRunner_Noexcuses caved. I signed up for a Spartan Sprint. In my defence, it is in two weeks… and my doctor told me it was okay to continue my regular exercise. While I haven’t been doing a ton of weight training, I’ve been keeping up with my cardio. I must say, it has been a while since I’ve done hills so I suppose I need to get at least a couple hill training sessions in before this thing. Ultimately my goal is to finish the darn thing, I know I’m not winning any awards!

Apparently it was my 76th fastest session (according to RunKeeper) now, keep in mind that doesn’t sound impressive but in the 3+ years I’ve had the RK app, I’ve had a LOT of sessions, so I’m pretty good with that!  What I love about running is Fish Creek is that it’s shaded and it doesn’t feel like you’re in the middle of a city. There are many ups and downs, but overall it is one of my favourite places to run!

Anyway – this is a quick post. Looks like I’ll be posting a little bit more leading up to the Spartan Race (just to stay on track!)

If there are any ‘expecting moms’ out there who have run Spartan, please, please, please get in touch. I’d love to pick your brain!

Happy Trails!
