    I have found that c210k helps a lot. I’ve also heard from other people that it helps too. Also fitocracy is also good for finding other people who are training and they can give some insight on how to train. Spartan uses a lot of arm strength so you are definitely going to want to do weight lifting.

    Have you done the Spartan or Tough Mudder? I can say that even with your size people will be so nice and help you through the race. I did the Spartan Sprint in April this year and I was able to do quite a bit thanks to the generosity of other racers and I weight 285 lbs. Although I was almost dead at the end since I hadn’t been working out at all before hand. If you haven’t done the race yet I would start out with a smaller mud run like the warrior dash. It is a lot more big person friendly and I can do all but one or two of the obstacles.

    • Hi Amy! Thanks for the note. That’s awesome you did a sprint. I did Mudderella last year and had a blast. Everyone there was awesome and helpful with some of the more challenging obstacles (especially the ladies who helped me dig out my sneaker in a deep mud pit). I’m planning on a spartan sprint late 2017. I do want to do a few events before like some 10k and a warrior dash and Mudderella again. My doctor just gave me the all clear to start exercising but I have to go slow since I’m still healing from surgery. I’m hoping I can start training for my 10k in October but I have to get my sea legs back with some long walks first.
