Today's post is my #MedalMonday. Hopefully people use it as #MotivationMonday to help push themselves, and #NeverMissAMonday to push through their workout to get wherre they need to be! Stay tuned for tomorrow as I dive in a little to how to run and build that ankle stability in those conditions!
I took on the Course Polar Hero Race Ottawa this past Saturday.
It was -10 when we started, and it was perfect. Since I was running unlimited laps, I was dressed for distance rather than speed. Kept the heat in and the cold out.
If I remember correctly there was 21 obstacles per lap. A few required more upper body strength than others, along with technique. And I can proudly say that I didn't fail anything!
Even though my quads cramped up on lap 4, I got them sorted out and completed 5 laps, finishing 3rd in unlimited.
Thank you to Gary Pillu and Kevin Pillu for putting on a great race. Thank you to Force5 Equipment for an awesome rig and toys for us to build our grip strength. Thank you to OCR Academy for helping us build our confidence and strength on these obstacles. Thank you to Reebok for keeping me warm. Thank you to Crossfuel for keeping me fuelled. Thank you to my Capital OCR Team teammates for cheering me on and encouraging everyone. Thank you to all of the volunteers who braved the cold.
Congrats to everyone who took on this awesome course. Can't wait to see you all at Ragnarok in March!!
