  • Tough Mudder training

    Wow, these last few weeks have me feeling great!!! I've been running a lot. I've been doing moderate weight/high rep weights for strength and endurance. Lots of pullups on the pullup bar here at home. Lots of pushups. Eating better and smaller amounts.

    And, the toe is finally starting to feel better!!!! It's been three weeks since I jacked it up and I'm feeling less pain.

    If any of you are personal trainers I'm open to any and all suggestions. Today we're taking the kids to the park and my only request is that there are monkey bars!!!!!!

    The other night I was talking to the wifey about a Camelback and she says- "Well, let's got to REI." I put my shoes on and was ready and she says- "No, we're running there!" It's not too far, maybe a coupla miles round trip the back way over a trail and up a nice long hill. It was great! She's my biggest supporter.

    Anywho..... I'll keep ya'll posted. :thumb:

    Can't help you with the training.

    Just wanted to say that I'm glad your toe is getting better.

    I need to buy hubby steel-toed shoes. He is always hurting his toes.

    They turn all sorts of pretty colors.


    Looking forward to the updates.

      Thank you Peanut!! Twisted my left ankle yesterday playing a massive game of tag at the park with at least 10 kids... but this too will pass.

        Have you considered plyometrics? Thats what i was doing training for the tough mudder coming to denver until i sprained my acl playing football.

        Plyometrics will increase the power in your muscles, not just strength.

        Also, do you do your training with a heart rate monitor?

            You'll be ready for anything after that program, one of the most well-balanced training regimens out there

                David Tyree is in it for charity too.

                http://espn.go.com/espn/page2/index?id=6304451

                David Tyree is going to run through fire for charity.

                Literally.

                Then again, the former New York Giants wide receiver and Super Bowl XLI hero will also crawl under eight-inch-high wires, swing across monkey bars greased with butter, sprint through a field of live wires and navigate something called the "Ball Shrinker."

                It's all part of the nine-mile Tough Mudder endurance challenge event, self-dubbed as "probably the toughest event on the planet." And Tyree, along with trainer Brian Pabst, Christian artist Nelson Diaz and his son Michael Diaz, will climb 12-foot walls and stomp through sludge to raise money for former Rutgers University football player Eric LeGrand, who was paralyzed this past October during a game.

                "After the workouts, I'm thinking about the fact that Eric isn't able to walk, that he would die for the opportunity to do what I'm doing right now," Tyree said. "We're going to run through fire, we're going to swim through water, we're going to be some extravagant demonstrations to show how much we love Eric."

                Team Believe will compete this weekend in Allentown, Pennsylvania on a course that includes 18 stages, each with its own unique challenge. The final obstacle is a sprint through kerosene-soaked straw and four-foot-high flames. Just before that, racers must navigate live wires, some powered with a 10,000-volt shock.

                "It was like, OK nine miles, there was some crazy stuff, walking through the mud, doing some swimming," said Tyree, who announced his retirement from football on July 29, 2010. "I don't think I was really grasping the fire and the electric shocks and all this other crazy, crazy stuff. Truth be told, I'm not even a crazy workout junkie, so I was relaxing enjoying being retired for a while."

                Tyree, who said his biggest post-retirement workout before ramping up his training for Tough Mudder came from chasing his five kids around, just wants to complete the course. But the magnitude of the moment will be compounded by LeGrand's expected presence in Allentown.

                "I'm going to finish, I'll guarantee you that," said Tyree, who plans to continue "doing more extravagant things" until Team Believe raises its $52,000 goal. "If the average time is 2 hours and 15 minutes, put me somewhere behind the average.

                "But knowing Eric will be there with us will make it that much more special."

                    The family and I just started "Family Fitness Night". We tossed the kids on their bikes and wifey and I tossed out running shoes on. We went out for 2.48 miles(great app on my phone tracked it) and had a blast!!!

                    It's amazing to me the changes I'm see in myself. A month ago I'd have struggled for the distance, but right now? Nah. The wifey and I said to each other- "I felt like I could have gone farther easier".

                    We spent the day at a friends house and they have the Insanity workout videos. They showed us what it was. Looked like fun and kinda tough. So, methinks I may pick up a set on Craigslist and work it into my current workout. Wouldn't hurt, right???

                    Til next time... LET'S DO THIS!!!
