To Mudd or not to Mudd?
That is the question…
Well, ‘was’ the question when I was asked last week to fill in for a friend who had suddenly been sent on a work trip to China. Despite having not trained specifically for it, and only having two weeks notice, I chose to Mudd. I mean, why not?
I figure I’ve got enough residual fitness from my ultra and my return to base running, plus some upper body strength from pushups, pullups and burpees to get me through 12miles of obstacle course race. He says without actually having done an OCR before, let alone a Tough Mudder which is almost half-marathon in distance…
I may well end up eating my words alongside all the mud I’ll be ingesting come this Saturday, but hey, you don’t know what you can do unless you try, right?!?
Anyone got any tips for an OCR newbie?
Happy running everyone!
Get Going, Get Running!
