5 tips to boost your Warrior Dash training

Last week, I ran the Warrior Dash for the first time with a group of friends. I’m not a runner, so the thought of doing a 5K obstacle course seemed a bit daunting. I decided I needed to prepare myself. Since running the Dash, I’ve also included a few other tips to help future warriors. […]

The final countdown: 6 days until the Warrior Dash

We are just six days away from the Warrior Dash. And my training wasn’t up to the level it was last week. On the positive side, I ran three times. I clocked 3 miles and 3.5 miles continuously on separate days. Between those runs, I tried to run at the time our race is, though […]

Week 1: Training for the Warrior Dash

School is basically done. And that means it’s time for two things: blogging and working out. For this post, I’ll combine the two. In six weeks, I’ll be doing the Warrior Dash for the first time. The concept is one of the damndest things I’ve ever heard of – a 5K obstacle course where you […]
