Yesterday, I survived going up that mountain and back down for the Asheville Super Spartan. I ran in the open heat and it was difficult, but really fun with beautiful views. Due to rain, the whole festival area and trails were muddy and slippery so you pretty much follow in single file till you get an opening to break out and do your own thing.
I really enjoyed the few moments I had to jog down hill! It is so fun to just go with it and so much easier than going up. Your glutes and hamstrings get sore going up, but that goes away on the down as you use your quads and knees, but if you just go with the flow and try not to break with your knees you won't feel any pain.
I have to say, Spartan races are not for anyone. I highly recommend doing some research and training for the race so you can enjoy it. Enjoy, testing your physical fitness surrounded by nature.
Also, super proud of my little man for completing his first 1mi Spartan kids race! Now, all 3 of us will be getting our trifecta this year!
