I signed myself up for a mud run in June. It has about 20 obstacles along the 5K course, and naturally all of them involve mud. While I have been running off and on and not getting to the gym as much as I would like…I’ve got six weeks. It’s go time. Hello push-ups…planks…wall holds…and so much more. What a great incentive to get moving and jump start this.
I completed this two years ago. I definitely was in better shape prior to that race, and took my time (I wasn’t doing it for speed) not to mention apprehension about jumping twelve feet into a giant mud pit…or climbing a giant pile of mud while dodging the people ahead of you who are losing their footing and sliding back down. Nevertheless, it’s fun and scary at the same time; pushing myself beyond my comfort zone. And when you cross the finish line, there’s no better feeling!
So today begins training. I stopped while I was out to explore a new (to me) trail. I love being outside. I love the woods. So it’s balls to the walls on training. No more excuses.
Now to kick some ass!
