Well the 2014 OCR season concluded at the end of October with me finishing my trifecta at the South Carolina Super. I also couldn't walk for two weeks after that. No, literally. I tried to play soccer two days after the race and re-aggravated a ten year old bulged disc. I was on steroids and then rehabbed for a month or so. Then we were mid-holiday season and things were crazy. I packed on a few pounds and eased back into training. As January rolled around I started kicking it up a notch. I started doing Sunday morning trail runs no matter the weather, training in a 20 pound weight vest, and extending workouts to at least 2 hours long. I also bought a spear off of Matt “The Bear” (Spartan Pro Team Member) and practiced that until the cold and weather interfered. Will be starting that again soon.
