Hiking adventures, Studying, and more training for #spartanrace
Bryce Boepple Journal – 5/1/2018
I had a great weekend going back home to Killdeer, North Dakota from Fargo this weekend. I saw my family and my dog, as well as many people from town. I went hiking, and in total I probably covered over 7 miles. Hopefully the hiking will prepare my joints and muscles for my upcoming Spartan race that is only 5 days away. While hiking, a massive thunderstorm ended up rolling through and I had to book it out of the badlands quickly before being overtaken by the storm. I took shelter under a rock that jutted out of a butte until the rain calmed down and the intense lightning passed. The hiking trip was a crazy, survivor-esque experience that time around.
The Spartan Race will take place in Glacier Park, Montana, around the Whitefish/Kalispell area. I am still super excited, albeit a bit anxious. I do not think I am as prepared for the race as I was last year. Despite not being as prepared physically, I am running it with my cousin so that should act as a mental toughness boost. Speaking of mental toughness boost, I took a second to admire the Rollo statue today while leaving class for some inspiration.
My gym session today was not nearly as strenuous as normal, due to having hiked quite a bit over the weekend, and because it’s dead/finals week so my attention is elsewhere.
· 3x5 OHP – 135 lbs
· 3x12 Bench Press – 135 lbs
· 15 Burpees
· 5 minutes treadmill
I have sold quite a bit of the items I listed earlier in April so I am thankful for that.
My task list for this week is as follows:
1. Work on and finish MIS group project
2. Finish Finance 470 Individual excel project
3. Make and corrections to Finance 430 paper
4. Study for exams
