    Becoming a Tough Mudder! - From now til April '11


    Hey Everyone, thanks for dropping by! This is a personal training log that i'm going to be running from now until April because I am competing in the Tough Mudder. For anyone who doesn't know what that is, I am posting a youtube video at the bottom here, but its basically just a sick race with a ton of obstacles.

    I wont be doing TOO much commentary, but i'll post each day's session in my progress towards reaching my physical fitness needs to compete. I could really use your support in here

    skip to about 2:45 in the video to start seeing the action!

    I'll be running it as well!! Glad to see other people into adventure races. I'm assuming you are up in PA if you are running that one. Did you get in on the Warrior Dash? It was a couple wks ago in PA, but only 3.11 miles. Still fun though. Did I see you are projecting 2.5 hrs for completion? That's beastly man! The course is 18 miles up and down the mountain with obstacles... leaving you to maintain a sub 8.5 minute mile throughout.

    Just some basic stretches and such. I got hired for a new job (thank god) and I took kind of a leave of absence from real working out for a few days with all the interviews and tours and such i've had to take....its been wild. I had to get A LOT of blood testing and immunizations and such also because i'm joining the culinary team for our local hospital.

    Action - in a funny twist, I decided to whip out my honey's "tae-bo" video and follow along with that. When you havent done a workout similar to that in a while, it really kicks your arse lol

    Never did the P90X thing but my girl did buy the INSANITY dvd's. It's not just a clever name either as the pace that the dude goes at is crazy, I'll admit that I couldn't keep up to it, wasn't even close.... unbelievable cardiovascular work, in fact I should start doing them again...

    I discontinued this log because by the time I got a paycheck that I could spare the money to sign up for the mudder, both event days were sold out . Looks like I have to delay my participation sadly. I may try for warrior dash in June i believe it is.

    Yeah, I started catching up on your other log. Besides tough mudder and warrior dash, you can look into spartanrace.com as well.

    ok, now i'll let this thread lay and will continue any further discussion in your other one.
