Spartan training update: ED recovery  & Spark

As I continue on my journey to recovery I find myself having many less binge episodes. In fact, I have been able to focus on training for the Spartan sprint in May and have had very little urge to binge.  I’ve been following a macro based plan, pretty well – but not 100% – which…
