Spartan Paris Spin Mix

This week’s spin workout is named Spartan Paris as I recently learned that there will be a Spartan Race in Paris, France on Saturday September 13, 2014 with the first wave starting at 9:00am.  The Spartan Super obstacle course is 13km long, consists of 25 obstacles, and participants are expected to finish as quick as 1 hr 20minutes to as long  as 3hours+.  On Saturday September 13 there was also be a Junior Spartan for those who might be interested in a shorter course.  For more information check out the Spartan France Race Page as it should be a great event.

This week’s cycling mix consists of steep, intense hill climbs alternating with speed work incorporating both jumps and sprints to keep you on your toes similar to what you might expect from the variety of obstacles in the Spartan Race.
