123 Days Until Killington Ultra Beast 2016

With only 123 days left until the Killington Ultra Beast, I decided to create a series of posts detailing my preparedness plan, thoughts, and feelings. Although it may seem like 123 days is plenty of time to prepare, I feel like there is a lot of work to do in little time.

Yes, I did complete the 2016 Spartan Ultra Beast NJ two weeks ago. Although I am not upset with my performance (37th overall), I felt I could have done better. With that in mind, I am going to put the work in. Please keep in mind, I am an average athlete with elite willpower and determination.

Ultra Beast Training

Having not trained since the week before the NJ UB, it is difficult to get back into the groove. The week after was a recovery week in preparation for Ohio Sprint and Beast. Last week was again a recovery week. That is 3 weeks without training! I hit the gym the other day and had a hard time finding the motivation to work out. Today’s run was a bit of a chore, but I powered through it the best I could.

Getting a late start on this week's countdown. The week was action packed with me getting back on the horse. I ramped up the activities a bit during the week in preparation for my first ever Hurricane Heat in Barre, MA (HH-088). Running has become far easier than it has been over the last few weeks, it seems my body is starting to heal a bit.
