I competed in a Warrior Dash this last weekend, and it was a lot of fun. I can say that none of the obstacles in that race should be a challenge for anybody who has been doing SF on a regular basis. It was actually kind of easy to be honest. The fun part was blowing by people who didnt have such an easy time on the obstacles. That being said, I didnt get the opportunity to really put in the pace I could have cause I was running with a friend, and he wasnt as prepared. If I worked harder on my running, I think I could actually be competitive. I am interested in doing the same type event again, but I will be looking for more of a challenge next time (in obstacles, not running. I hate running). So I am thinking about doing a Spartan or a Conquer the Gauntlet, and I am almost for sure going to do an Alpha Warrior event. Their motto is "no mud, no miles" because its all obstacles all the way through, and a lot more upper body.
The last couple weeks I've been off SF because of travel and such, but I've been keeping up with some other conditioning drills and greasing the groove. Hopefully it wont hurt me too bad when I get back to this next week. I admit, I almost talked myself into changing programs, but I love this system so much. So I think I'm going to compromise. I feel that I need to work my lower back and shoulder more, so I think i'm going to add a couple moves in at the end of my workout. I just want to be a little better rounded. I might, just might also slightly modify day 2 to be more strength focused, but I dont know. Any thoughts?
