So this weekend the girls and I are heading to Boston to participate in the Spartan Race at Fenway Park. I am in no way prepared to do this. No bleachers have been run, no burpees have been done, not strength training whatsoever. My lower back is still bothering me (you'd think I'd go have it check out), but it leaves me wondering how I'm going to deal with the obstacles and crazy amount of stairs to run. Honestly, I'm not really worried about it. There is no time limit and who cares if it takes us over two hours to complete a 5K?
I'm taking today off from running to rest and will probably do any easy run on Thursday as a test. I am looking forward to really working on strengthening my core after this "race" as I'm pretty sure that being weak in this area is what caused my back to freak out in the first place. I won't be racing again until the Mid-Winter Classic 10-Miler in February, so that will be plenty of time for rehab and to work toward my goal of PR-ing the crap out of that race.
I am really excited for this weekend though. I mean, a night out with my favorite ladies in Boston?!? Yes, please! And the fact that the Red Sox won the World Series last month and we get to run around in the stadium where it all happened is so cool!
