Spartan WOD for Saturday, 11.3.12

By Jason Jaksetic


We can’t plan life.  All we can do is be available for it.

—Lauryn Hill

Strength:  4  Endurance:  3  Speed:  3

Exercising keeps you ready for whatever may confront you.  It’s all about persistence in the face of adversity.  Fitness is both physical and mental in nature.  Training is about systematically accomplishing objectives that you once held as beyond your capabilities.

How did Spartan develop the Spartan Pancake at HQ?  There were all these sandbags laying around after hurricane Irene.  Not knowing what to do with them, we started lugging them around on our mountain trail runs.

The results have been remarkable.

Get outside and run with a sandbag.

The key word for this Spartan WOD is HUSTLE.

Maybe you have some serious storm clean-up?  Forget the sandbag and start running to an hurricane impacted friend’s home or business, roll up your sleeves and get to work! Keep your heart rate up. 2 hours minimum!
