In this episode I talk to Faye Stenning. Faye took 3rd at Spartan Race World Championships in a talked about burpee race at the end with Lindsay Webster. Following her outstanding podium at Spartan Race World Championships, she had a to make a tough decision to walk away from the race at Obstacle Course Racing World Championships (OCRWC).
We talk in detail about how she took a leave of absence from work to dedicate a full 4 months to training which ultimately allowed her to make it to the podium at SRWC. She breaks down the race for us, sharing a breakdown of some of the obstacles, how she felt during the race and how she was able to make it through some of the “dark places” that she was in when she felt like she couldn’t finish in the top group.
We also talk about what happened at OCRWC that led to her walking off the course. She tells us about what obstacles she likes, and what obstacles she didn’t like. Faye talks a lot about obstacles that don’t test you physically, but ultimate are more dangerous then they are worth and what its like when you come to an obstacle like that.
