Tough Mudder

8 Apr

Ola friends!

So it’s been quite a while since I have used this blog. I’ve been trying to think of an excuse to start it up again, and I’ve found one. A few weeks ago, I signed up for the obstacle course of all obstacle courses… Tough Mudder! Check out the link & look at what I have (voluntarily) signed myself up for.

To sum it up it’s “probably the toughest event on the planet,” designed by British Special Forces, it’s a 10 – 12 mile (20KM) obstacle course to test overall stamina, strength and camaraderie! I have the pleasure of going through this crazy course with Danielle & Aurora.

We started training last week – here is what my week looked like:

Tuesday: run & kickboxing
Wednesday: Tough Mudder class
Thursday: run & bootcamp
Friday: run/weight circuit/run (this one included a hill of death, picture below)
Saturday: stairs/hot abs/kickboxing
Sunday: weight ciruit

This morning Aurora & I ran 12K – I’ve got kickboxing & volleyball tonight as well.

The official count down is 33 days. I’ve decided to commit myself to a clean eating challenge for these 33 days to make sure I get the most out of this training. I’ll be posting pictures of my meals and blogging about my workouts leading up to the big event!

      It’s on High Street – right before the water tower… it didn’t look steep at first, and then you get going and it was really tough!
