Being a Mudder℠ is all about taking on the obstacles in your life and the enormous sense of accomplishment that you feel when you overcome them.
Wir müssen alle essen, und hangry sein macht ja auch keinen Spaß. Aber oft kommt es leider doch dazu, denn wer plant schon akribisch jede Mahlzeit vor und hält dies dann auch ein? Wir glauben sogar daran, dass wenn du diesen Artikel liest, du spätestens in zwei Stunden wieder Hunger haben wirst – oder? Außer du hast dich gerade durch ein riesiges Mittagessen in das berühmt-berüchtigt dämmrige Nachmittagstief katapultiert.
Sorry, Mudder Nation: Even if you’re training hard for a 5K, Classic, or Toughest Mudder and expending loads of energy on the regular, you probably still can't eat anything you want. But because there are more eating plans than there are ways to get over Everest (read: lots), it can be hard to figure out which eating plan is best for you.
Protein is a crucial part of any Mudder’s nutrition, and most people think “meat” when they think of protein. But there are plenty of plant-forward ways to work protein into your diet. These meals and snacks are the perfect options for meat-free Tough Mudders to get the vegetarian protein they need to crush it on course.
Muscle cramps are every Mudders’ worst nightmare. You’re out there killing it, running through the muddy course, climbing up Mudderhorn, sliding under Tight Squeeze, and then wham-o! You feel that first twinge of a muscle seizing up and before you know it, you’re in a full-blown, swear-inducing, body-clutching cramp.
From smoothies to plant-based burgers and pizza, getting your vegetarian protein fix has never been easier or more delicious. After completing a Tough Mudder, your body needs to refuel with a protein-packed meal, and these eight vegetarian protein options offer the perfect combination of flavor and nutrition.

It’s hot out there, and there’s nothing quite like a refreshing dip in the pool, the ocean, or even an alpine stream for lowering your core temperature. But what about getting really cool by taking an ice bath or spending a few minutes in a cryotherapy chamber? Some athletes are devoted to ice baths, touting enhanced muscle recovery and decreased soreness after hard efforts. Scientists, on the other hand, are a little more skeptical.
While pushing your body to its limits training for a Tough Mudder, proper nutrition and hydration are super important. But in these sweltering dog days of summer training, an ice-cold cocktail sounds almost necessary to survival. All the sugar and calories in a handmixed libation, however, could derail your carefully crafted fueling plan.
