Hopefully more experienced warriors will join the forum - this is going to be my first dash. I am a former college athlete so I'm starting 'in shape' more or less - joined spark about 3 weeks ago to try to get my nutrition on track and get serious again about being physical. My boyfriend and I plan to do the dash together - hoping to round up a few more friends to have a group go.
I'm thinking of keeping my regular workouts but with a longer running goal in mind - consistently running at least 4 miles during cardio sessions and continuing my mostly body weight strength training program: http://www.menshealth.com/spartacus/workouts/ thats a link for the Spartacus Workout. It is definitely a challenge but you feel AWESOME after you finish.
All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or weight or the wrong type to play this or achieve this. They will tell you no, a thousand times, no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly. AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES!
