In this mini episode I talk about a short review of the L.A. Spartan Sprint at Lake Castaic. This is a quick episode with a few strategies to help you with your training. My big tip for this week is how to approach his during the race. There is a very important difference between training on hills and how you attack them during a race.
One of the biggest mistakes I saw at the Lake Castaic Sprint was Spartans sprinting up hills and then just destroying themselves for the rest of the race. In this episode I discuss how you want to approach hills correctly and some things to focus on while you are heading up the mountain.
