Anyone done one? Talk to me. Thinking about doing the Miami or Atlanta one.
I heard it is a lot harder than most people thought it was going to be. Don't do one in the fall or spring because the water they make you run through is too cold. I know a girl that had to be rescued because she was so cold she couldn't swim and started locking up.
I have thought of that. Doing Miami in February or Atlanta in April. Prefer Miami. Watching some of the videos there is a lot more standing around than I thought. Waiting in line for obstacles etc. At first I thought I might be crazy for doing this but after watching videos I feel I can do this no problem.
I was invited to do the one in Frederick last month but was out of town. Had several friends do and liked it. As of now I am planning to do one in April (I assume it is mid-Atlantic).
Tough Mudder is ridiculous. Never done it, but a 10-12 mile obstacle course has to suck. Look into Warrior Dash if you don't want that distance - same idea but its only a 5k.
My feeling is if I do it I am going to go big. Of course I am an idiot.
I did the one in Wintergreen last year, skipped the Mid-Atlantic this year since I didn't have a lot of my buddies doing it. A college friend had her brother paralyzed serving overseas and wanted to put together a team so of course I joined.
It was no joke. 10.5 Miles on a ski slope with obstacles. They just had you running up and down black diamonds for the half the time, which are impossible to actually run up. It turned into a face pace hike that killed your back more than anything. It was rough but overall a great experience and can probably say it's one of the harder things I've done. I had some friends that did the local one a couple months ago and said it was 100x easier. It was 2 miles longer, but not on a damn ski resort. If you are interested i'll be happy to share some training tips... It's not something you can roll out of bed and finish with ease.
i just signed up for the one in West Virginia. Anyone else doing this? For those that have completed it please share any tips.
I am such a pussy. Self diagnosed torn rotator cuff, haven't been to gym in three months. Planning on going back next week.
Main thing is to lift legs and train on hills. The flat ground stuff is easy but there are so many hills, just be prepared.
Hello mudda. Hello fadda.
I've never done one, but I think I'm signing up for one this summer when I turn 50.
I'm glad for some of the training tips I'm reading in here. A few years ago I entered a geezer wrestling tournament, thinking I wouldn't be sucking air because I ran my ass off to train. Wrong. I learned that sometimes "training" isn't the "right training."
Can we use this thread to talk about our post-SB party bowel movements, too? I'm pretty sure mine are going to be longer and more brutal than any obstacle course.
Just another reason why I don't do Super Bowls unless the Skins are it. I have enough problems...
More like Super bowels, amirite?
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
It's not as hard as some of the other extreme races. I did both the Tough Mudder and Super Spartan race last year. The Spartan race was far more challenging.
I had to come into the office today. I've hit the mens room three times, and every time I've been in there the stalls have been doing a lot of business. Most of the time there's that guy who barrels in and gets the pants down just in time...
I've heard its very dependent on which TM you do. I did the one in Vermont 2 years ago and it absolutely sucked. Literally on a ski slope with snow on the ground and the snow blowers on. The course was up and down the mountain for 12 miles, in the snow. Took us 3 hours as a group.
The rest of my group did the one in Wintergreen last year and said it was a complete joke - it was on a golf course more or less.
