I work in marketing for a newspaper and since we’re sponsoring the upcoming mud and obstacle challenges put on by Sqwish Sqwash, we got a sweet deal on the registration for a team. So $12 later, I’m all signed up for a 5-mile obstacle race.
Last night was the first time I could make it out to training with our team. And ooohhhhh boy. I am out of shape. Running a 5K with several stops along the way to do some strength and agility exercises was not easy. In fact, I was the slowest one out of our group of 5.
What??? Seven months ago I could run a half marathon. Apparently throwing in a couple of runs and trips to yoga in those seven months was not enough to keep me in shape. But, I finished it. Tonight I’ll tackle some stairs in a local stadium with my team.
With two and a half weeks before race day, I know I won’t be in shape in time for the big event but I’ll finish it.
Do you have any stories of getting back to the workout grind to share?
