In July, we had the opportunity to participate in the Spartan "sprint" Race at AT&T ballpark. After blasting past steps among steps (which was no walk in the park), thankfully Lyon St. stairs made for a helpful component of our training regime. If we combine the tools at the gym plus increase the amount of cardio, preparation for our next challenge, the SF Urbanathlon, will be no sweat in the city!
This event has a Sprint (3 mile, 7 obstacle) or a Classic (11 mile, 14 obstacle) race looping just past Fort Mason. We believe everyone will enjoy putting themselves to the test. We plan to coordinate teams/waves of 5 according to individual running pace. We have approximately 3 months until race day so it's time to get crackin'.
Leading up to this exciting competition, we will start to increase our weekly running program and record of the average pace. Below is an example for "Long Run" Sundays:
September 6th - 1 mile
September 13th - 2 miles
September 20th - 3 miles
September 27th - 4 miles
October 4th - 5 miles
October 11th - 6 miles
October 18th - 7 miles
October 25th - 8 miles
November 1st - 9 miles
November 8th - 10 miles
November 15th - 11 miles
November 22nd - Race Day!!
Be sure to add a "short run" and "recovery run" during the week as well!
For example: October 27th - 5 miles & 29th - 4 miles.
Now take a deep breath and have fun because fitness is fun!

“The difference between having a goal and reaching your goal is YOU! Don’t stand in your own way”
Everything except for Barre/Ballet classes! I primarily strength train as well as run and cross-train via metabolic styled workouts. I do both yoga/pilates, and spin occasionally.
All of it!

“This life therefore is not righteousness but growth in righteousness; not health but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not what we shall be but we are growing toward it; the process is not yet finished but it is going on; this is not the end but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory but all is being purified.” -- MARTIN LUTHER
