Eeeek, I was just sent a blog about the Tough Mudder race. Sure, there was talk about skipping obstacles and some happy-go-lucky
“I would encourage anyone to try this out. … I loved the spirit present in the race. … I loved this race…and you might too!”
talk at the end, but there was also talk of water with ice in, tiny tunnels, smoke filled obstacles and such. I am more skeered than ever. Let’s just be glad I met, in fact exceeded (woo!!) all my goals this week. I am assuming that my traning schedule is on point with my fitness and nutrition:
Complete 2 any of 3:
1. Improve 5K time below 30 mins (29.5 mins)
2. Walk for less of the 6 mile jog (HUGE improvement; almost no walking)
3. Complete more of the 8 mile slow and steady / HIIT mix-up. (did it all. Oh yes baby, I sprinted back to my house. And collapsed. But I sprinted none the less).
and to work in some weights for my legs. (DONE!) Ha!
My training went like this:
Thursday: 45 min kickboxing
Friday – am: Timed 5K. Goal: Speed Pm: 20 minutes weights (DAMY workout)
Saturday – light biking
Sunday – 6 mile run. Goal: Endurance
Monday: am: 4 miles HIIT. Pm: Weights (20 min DAMY workout)
Tues: More rest.
Weds: am: 4 mile jog; 4 mile HIIT Pm: Weights (DAMY leg work out)
Goal next week:
Maintain all my times, and turn that 6 miler into a 7 miler (or more?). I (and Gabe, Andrea and Andrew) CAN AND WILL DO THIS!!!!
