So today was an off day for INSANITY and I decided to try to simulate the Warrior Dash. Crystal and I are running the race April 21 in Jackson, Mississippi. It’s a charitable race benefiting St. Jude’s Children Hospital. Its 3.4 miles interrupted by 14 obstacles. Check it out here.
So here was my workout today:
Ran 1.4 miles in 14:30 minutes
10 Push Presses of 95 pounds
.5 miles in 5 minutes
10 pull-ups (5 wide and 5 narrow)
.5 miles in 5:40 minutes
Dumbbell Bench plus 25 push ups and 5 plyo pushups
.6 miles in 7:50 (I was really wiped by this point plus the Lebatard show was on — havent seen that much, but it is funny.)
10 pull-up (5 wide and 5 narrow) (I did two sets because I am just excited I can do any!! Thank you P90X2 and Beachbody bands!))
.4 miles in 5:30
So I did the 3.4 miles in about (times are approximate from memory, I looked but didnt write them down) 38:40. Not too bad. I jogged most of the way and ran a portion, but walked more than I ran. I imagine I will be doing about the same in a couple of weeks. I know those obstacles (crawling through mud, under barbed wire, climbing walls, running through tires, and jumping over fire, to name a few) will be tougher than what I did. Check out the obstacles here. I hope P90X2 and INSANITY have me ready for those!!
What exercises should I do to help me prepare for these obstacles? Any ideas??
