Long endurance run for spartan race training

This week’s obstacle racing workout highlights come from English countryside. To recharge and escape the metropolitan routine we decided to hit the trails every single day.

The best run was the long steady pace endurance effort:

  • Running 6-8 miles out in the wilderness, where no cars go…
  • Running back exploring new footpaths and trails
  • All at a steady 145-150 BPM HRM
  • Timed at 1h 27mins + a good 10 mins of cool down


Resulting calorie deficit:



This is how we do it: Run out as far as you can and simply run back – this is the easiest way to forcer yourself to complete those longer runs.
