Today we are highlighting Outlaw OCR athlete Pierre. You can follow his journey at @pfiliatrault .

He is our oldest athlete at 59 years young. He is also a father of 3 and is an international businessman, flying up to 50-60 times per year across the world. Rather than make excuses due to a busy schedule, he always finds time to get his training in, even if that means in small hotel gyms, late at night after working all day.

To date he has completed 4 full marathons and has been running obstacle course for the last year and a half. Last year he completed his first Spartan trifecta and has also competed both at OCRWC and NorAm in the Journeyman division. Despite a recurring shoulder injury, he hopes to get healthy and qualify Age Group next season.

Abonnerer du ikke på Runners World? Vil du bli bedre kjent med meg? Løp og kjøp hvis du er nyskjerrig på hvordan jeg klarer å være så aktiv hele tiden! Sannheten er at det er det jeg gjør, stort set. Jeg er ikke på jobb klokken 8.00 uten balanserer dagens energi så at jeg faktisk klarer å få trent da det er viktig for helsen min og står øverst på min prioriteringsliste. Å gjøre det jeg gjør med Addisons sykdom er et litet mirakel i seg selv, jeg har jobbet beinhardt siden 2013 og at jeg elsker det er bare en stor bonus. Men fy søren så tøffe år det har varet, nå nyter jeg. Og jobber videre. Jeg starter Team Nordic Trail i Norge fordi jeg selv har savnet et lavterskel tilbud til å løpe ute i naturen sammen med andre, det som jeg funnet har kjents «way over my ability», for å si det slik. Når man nesten ikke klarer å bevege seg, veier alt for mye, og ikke er sikker på at man faktisk (sant) overlever økten er det greit å være et sted hvor det er rom for alle. Det fine er at det fungerer like fint for meg i dag, selv om jeg er en hel annen løpere nå. Alle kan være med og yte etter evne, og oppleve fellesskap og løpeglede!
I morgen er det #østmarkatrailchallenge som står for tur og jeg gleder meg sykt masse til en dag i skogen! Takk @skarabot og @runnersworldnor for at jeg fikk dele min løperhistorie, jeg har fått mange tilbakemeldinger om at det har betydd mye å få lest den. #sharingiscaring #lovetorun #gratitude #ultratraining #eunningwithafdisonsdisease #cortisondependent #invisibleillness #binyrebarksvik #nullstress #addisonssykdom #morbusaddisons #løpingpåtrossav #medlivetsominnsats @teamnordictrailno @teamnordictrail #teamnordictrailno #teamnordictrail #runnersofinstagram #runnersofnorway @icebugxperience @aclima_norway #icebug @icebugofficial #ivarformosminneløp #hauern #lommedalenrundt #lillotrail #icebugwestcoast #nordmarkstravern 📷 @elin.ke ❤️❤️❤️⛰️🏃‍♀️

Mista tid av at Storm absolutt MÅTTE 💩 underveis (selv etter iherdige forsøk fra min side, til å få han til å gjøre fra seg før løpet) og at jeg fikk tidenes vannblemme allerede under første runde 😆 Men strålende fornøyd likevel! Takk til @vomdogrun for bra arrangement og takk til alle sponsorer av løpet 😊😁 ( bilde 1 fotokreds til @doglife.in.norway 😘)

En helt vanlig onsdagskväll och skön luft. Lika skön känsla var kvällens pass. En sån där dag jag kunnat mata kilometer efter kilometer. Det var längesedan jag hade den känslan.🙏
Sprang till en början med @larsakekvist och Svanholm.
Men dom hamnade bakom mig så jag körde solo största delen.

Today we are highlighting Outlaw athlete Brett. A father and full time chef, Brett makes time for his training despite a hectic personal schedule. You can follow his journey at @brettles2011

Brett started with Outlaw OCR nearly 6 months ago. Here are his stats to date after 2 races: .
.
◾️7th place elite, Mud Hero Ultra 10km, Ottawa 2018 (qualified OCR World Championships)
◾️20th place elite, Spartan Race Sprint, Ottawa 2018 (qualified NorAm and OCR World Championships). He will be running @xmanrace this coming Saturday and is looking for a top 10-15 elite finish.

Brett's "A" race this year will be OCR World Championships in London, England, this October.

Got a surprise in the mail today!

The letter states "as you prepare for the World Championships, remember to share you journey in every way to help inspire other Spartans. You might talk about your training, your mental game, or what drive you in life. Whatever your message is, the power you have as a Spartan can and will drive incredible change in other people's lives..." If you're looking to reach your goals and attain new levels, the best way to do so (aside from proper training) is to work on your mental toughness. I saw results nearly overnight by doing so.

How many times have you thought this during a race.... .
◾️"Great, another hill. When will this end?"
◾️"My legs hurt, it's hard to breathe, my training didn't pay off." If you want to reach new levels, you need to rewire your thinking because these thoughts DO hinder performance..
.
.
◽️Instead of thinking "when will this end?" Keep your head down, keep pushing, and accept that everyone is suffering just as bad.
◽️Instead of thinking how uncomfortable you are, accept that it is normal (and expected) to be feeling uncomfortable during a race and that everything else feels the same.

There is a misconception that because you are in better shape the race wont hurt. In fact that, the race always hurts, especially when you are moving at PR/PB pace (Matt Fitzgerald, "How bad do you want it?"). Accept it and anticipate it.

It doesn't get easier, you get better.

Had a great time this weekend at the Spartan season opener at Owls Head, QC. Last year I had set a 2 year long term goal for myself and have been training towards this season since the end of last year's racing season. Unfortunately I had to pull the plug on racing the second day after rolling my ankle 2x during the Sprint.

This year had I set a goal of breaking into the top 15 which I did at the Sprint, finishing 14th overall against a solid field of runners. Had I opted to run age group I would have been on the podium. Not bad considering I finished 75th at this same race last year. Also qualified for both NorAm and OCR world championships, a good goal to get out of the way early. I'm on track to accomplishing my 2 year plan.

The race itself went well. Getting to run alongside the top 10 gave me a great opportunity to observe and learn from them. You don't learn and improve by hanging around with your equals, you learn by testing yourself against the best. I now have many things to think of that I can use to improve.

Otherwise I ran a solid race and my extensive grip work ensured no rig, rope, or monkey bar failures despite the rain. However, I did have an extremely pathetic spear throw which earned me 30 burpees...oh well, get it done and move forward 😂

I also want to give some shoutouts to Outlaw OCR athletes @hendrysarah who committed to improvement and qualified for both NorAm and OCR World Championships in her first race weekend as well as @pfiliatrault who has worked on incline running all winter and ran this race at a pace of 20 minutes per mile faster than last year!

This is proof that if you want to improve you need to stop exercising randomly and start training scientifically and specifically to the demands of the race you will face. Remember, "a goal without a plan is just a wish." If you're tired of lackluster results (as I was) and feel youre capable.of more, contact me right now to learn the Outlaw OCR method.

And the Outlaw strikes again. 14th overall elite at today's Spartan Sprint in Montreal (not pictured here, it was rainy as hell) which puts me on track for my 2 year plan. Not bad considering I finished 75th at this same race last year 😂.

If you have been following my page for the last year then you know my story. You know that after being frustrated with mediocre race results I took matters into my own hands...I did research and I tested ideas on myself. In a very short amount of time I saw a drastic difference in performance and results due to the changes I made.
As I continue to work on myself and improve my own performances, I have decided after much thought to share what I have learned with anyone else who is also tired of lackluster race results.
I present to you Outlaw OCR: personalized obstacle course racing and running training plans. These plans incorporate running, resistance work, military inspired HIIT workouts as well as OCR specific workouts designed to mimic the stress experienced in an Obstacle Course Race.

If you're tired of finishing at the back of the pack check out the website below as well as the link in my bio for more information on Outlaw:

Wishing we were back in the sun instead of being 100 feet under snow...

2017 season officially over after 5 long months.
As I've written many times before, this year I really took a chance on changing my entire training style. The last two years of OCR gave very mediocre results (it was more learning than racing) and I wanted to try something else as I felt the results didn't reflect what I thought I was capable of. As I've said before: leave bodybuilding to the bodybuilders and focus on high intensity.

Had alot of fun this season running with new and old friends who I have been able to learn from by observing and racing. I hope to see you all again next season @ocr_fm @ocra_james_sgx @hendrysarah @jer870 @n_bidin13 @spartan_yeti @beej_fitness_ocr @alexander_rekitsanov_ @stevietrailracer @brettles2011 if I missed anyone else it is totally by accident, you know you belong in this list.

Highlights this season: -Setting the goal of top 25 to qualify for Spartan Canadian Championships and attaining it
-Earning my coin and qualifying for Spartan Race World Championships
-Qualifying again for OCRWC
-Keeping my band for the first time at OCRWC
-Setting new PR's in the 10km and 21.1km distance
-Earning my first running podium and victory
-Getting to visit new places with family and see family I had not seen in years

There's still alot of time until next season to review what did and didn't work, but as they say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." It's not one or two workouts that will make the difference, but it is the consistent workouts over a long period of time that will yield greater results. However, first it's time for a bit of time off....and a long overdue beer... #spartanrace #spartanracecanada #spartanraceworldchampionship #spartan #ocr #ocrwc #ocrworldchampionships #savagerace #bonefrog #toughmudderx #toughmudder #runner #running #marathon #halfmarathon #garmin #icebug #mountains #ocrtraining #spartansprint #spartansuper #spartanbeast #spartanracetraining #aroo #spartantraining #spartantrifecta #obstaclerace #ocrrunner #spartanwc2018 #noram

Had fun in Sunday competing for the first time in the OCRWC team event as the "speed" specialist with team "What the hill!?"
We agreed to run open for fun but I wasn't sure how things were going to go for me: woke up feeling like I had been run over by a truck and still had both hands ripped up from the 15km. Ended up making fighter inspired hand wraps and threw on some gloves, which I never do. Had a feeling I would probably lose my band on the monkey bars (ridiculous) because of the gloves, but wasn't willing to rip open my hands more than they already were for a fun run.

Overall it was really enjoyable in the relay format. For the most part I ran "alright" despite feeling like my legs were made of lead. Lost alot of time on the last two downhills which, in my opinion, became too dangerous to bother risking injury (again, for a fun run). My two teammates killed it at their specialties and we demolished the major slip wall at the end in a matter of a minute-two minutes (estimated). Definitely would like to do this race again with the boys in the future!
