Dot to Trot

My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking!

Tough Mudder Clock Is Ticking

I’m so excited about tying my 5K training to an actual date that I’ve decided its time to do the same for Tough Mudder. Once I hit 200 pounds I promised myself I’d start training for a mudder. Well I’m 12 pounds shy of hitting that mark. Why wait? Besides, starting now will keep me focus on eating healthy.

Because of the difficulty level, I decided that if I’m going to do a mudder it should be in a fun place so I can get in a little R&R afterwards. So I’m circling the June 20 & 21 on my calendar. That gives me two options – British Columbia or Scotland!

Registering is the easy part. I need to save up for plane tickets and a hotel room. I’m hoping by December 1 I’ll save enough know which one I can go to.

Of course there is a rumor that my gym is organizing a team and training program for a 2015 mudder. Hmmmm…if so, then I may do that instead. I’ll have a better chance at crossing the finish line on a team than flying solo.

In any event, I’ve given myself a year to prepare myself. I downloaded the Tough Mudder training guide and it’s looking like lots of pull-ups, sit ups, planks, burpees, squats, mountain climbers and lunges are in my future.

Sigh…pull-ups and burpees are my natural enemy. But I will conquer them.
