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.
Comparing conventional road running to trail running is like comparing a night in a luxe hotel to one at a campground. Next time you’re thinking of hitting the pavement, try trading the smooth course route for that of a gritty, scenic, trail - you won’t be disappointed. Trail running, like a Tough Mudder, is an adventure.
Did you think that your pre-event training is all stiffing your upper lip without stuffing your face? Kevin Curry of Fitmencook.com is making us say “damn” with a few healthy and low-cal side dishes that can enhance your meal and infuse your taste buds with a powerful rush.
For some folks, hitting the gym alone is enjoyable, but for others, it’s a chore. Whether you fall into the former or latter, the key to taking your sweat sessions to the next level could lie in finding yourself a motivating workout buddy. Studies show working out with a friend or mate not only increases motivation, but can double results, and make you happier.
Prepping for Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet goes beyond a few bicep curls. You committed to a challenge, and to pushing your mental and physical limits, why halfass any of it? Beyond training, you should be fueling the machine that’ll get you to the finish line with a balanced diet so you can crush Mud Mile like a badass.
