E. 139 Listener Q and A: Taper, Travel and First Race advice.


Welcome to Episode 139 of the Obstacle Order!

Spartan Race World Championship

In this Episode Philip and Elijah sit down to answer your questions! This episode is dedicated entirely to responding to listener questions. Philip and Elijah did not get completely caught up on the back log of questions so if you have asked one and it has not been covered, please be patient.

The first question is how to handle international travel bracketed by two races. The second ask for advice on how to taper for a beast. The third is for beginning racers. What to expect and how to go about preparing for the first race day.

Thanks for the support and please don’t forget to call our hotline to ask questions and leave us a review on iTunes.

In this episode Philip gets inside the meticulous mind of Evan Perperis. We last interviewed Evan in E. 95 and highly recommend listening to that episode to get more on his background.

Evan sheds light on training for the long haul. Preparing for endeavors longer than the usual distance such as Ultra Running, The World’s Toughest Mudder and The Spartan Ultra Beast!
Inside you’ll find coverage of when and how to fuel, what gear to bring and why your pit crew is so important. Also discussed… passing out under water! What? Yep.
