  • Official 2014 Mud Run Thread!!!

    We haven't picked an event yet, probably Tahoe in the fall again like this past year. Ideally, we'd like to travel for one and see if we can pull off two events next year!

    (edit; this thread has morphed into a general Mud Run Thread, hence the title change. Share your stories.. pictures.. let's finish the back half of 2014 strong and muddy!!!)

    This year whooped my arse!! Badly damaged, possibly cracked a rib on my left side on the first wall event less then a mile in. Then at about a mile in I further injured my already bad right knee so that every step sent a shock of pain along the right side. By about mile 5-6 I couldn't run, but I refused to stop, so I hobbled my way to the end!!

    It's now been two weeks, the knee still hurts, but it's getting better. I still can't lay on my stomach or left side because of the rib and my girlfriend HATES that she can't squeeze me when she hugs me because of the pain in the rib area. I'm telling you... Big Mudder may have hurt me this year, but Big Mudder didn't break me!!!! I got my third orange headband and free beer.

    Big Mudder, I'm already back in the gym(8600 meters on a row machine today, tell me that didn't hurt the rib area!!!), pain and all! Bring it!!!!

    Here's the official video for the July Tahoe event, I'll post the fall one when it's posted.

            I'm trying to heal, but on the 26th I have another mud/obstacle/run thing. It's called Mud Factor. Only a 5k, so about 1/4 the distance of Tough Mudder and much easier obstacles. We have a team of about 8ish for that one. Should be fun!!!

                            Dang! Almost forgot about this thread.

                            The end of last year found me kinda lazy. Since about the last week of December I've been refocused. Mainly hitting the cardio. Carzy thing is, I've picked up about three pounds. But then I've also been taking a creatine supplement and doing a lot of push ups, sit ups, squats and calf raises.

                            I'm going to spend Feb off the creatine to cut down a few pounds to take some stress of the knees. But already I'm seeing huge endurance gains over the last five weeks.

                            Also went to check and Spartan hasn't set a date up here yet. But it's not the big 12+ miler, it's only the 8+ miler...

                            Oh well, it's all to get ready for Tough Mudder!!!!

                              October 25th, that's Spartan in Sacto. Gotta go register!!!!!!

                              Workouts are going well. Sometime this weekend I'll post the "stats" of Jan and Feb's workouts. I've been on top of bieng cosistant. Feeling good. Even had a aday a few weeks ago I went and worked out even with a migraine, beccause there is NO excuse for missing the workout.

                              CHEERS!!
