The Spartan Stadium Race at Citizen's Bank Park was slated as the last race of my 2015 OCR Season. I was planning to crush this race. However, things did not unfold as expected. Five weeks prior to CBP I started my taper for the OCR World Championships. That race destroyed my body and my training plans for the next two weeks. Then I did the GORUCK Tough in NYC after that which trashed the next two weeks of workouts. This unexpectedly became my off season and recovery period. A week out from CBP I realized I was going into the race with 5 weeks of no training. I cleaned up my diet and sleep habits for the week and hoped for the best.
