Spartan Race would like to welcome you to a new feature that we will run every week. We invite you to write a letter to Joe and ask him whatever you like. Questions, praise, suggestions, advice… whatever the case may be, Joe is here to help you!

This week, Discouraged In Downey has got in touch.

Dear Joe,

Last year I managed to get in great shape and was right where I wanted to be until I came down with an unexpected medical setback. Once I rebounded from that and was given the “all clear” from my physician to start exercising again, after over a month off, I was knocked down by this monster flu everyone is sharing with everyone else.

Now, I am finally on the road to recovery from that, but find my motivation is absolutely gone at this point. I have nothing to work toward or look forward to. How can I get myself back on track, without an event in mind, but rather, get my mind back on just being healthy and staying there?

My past life as a couch potato is lurking!
