Screen Shot 2012-02-27 at 7 42 58 PMSpartan friend and blogger Margaret Schlachter recently won a Bloggie for Best Sports Blog after a worldwide vote.   Margaret is a regular on the Spartan racing circuit and one of the original members of Spartan Chicked, a movement that began at last year’s Spartan Beast, where Margaret took third place female! 

On this Spartan Chicked Tuesday, we thought we’d give her some love and let her choose a WOD for Spartan Nation.  True to her Spartan core, she chose one that dirt in your skirt 2.cdrinvolves a workout partner… a rock. 

Congratulations Margo and here’s your WOD Sparta, brought to you by none other than Ms. Dirt in Your Skirt herself, Margaret Schlachter! 

117-Margaret-1561This is a WOD I came up with right after Hurricane Irene hit Vermont and left my town an island. I couldn’t go on the trails and I had to stay off the road due to construction. When life throws a kink in the chain, you work it out. Choose a rock or weight that is manageable for multiple sets. Live in snowy climates?  Do it with snowshoes on!
