Run as much as possible. Do some HIIT as well which will really condition you. Start lifting and focus on your core as much as possible. A strong core will help you tremendously because you will need to be able to have good balance doing a lot of the obstacles.
Squats, lunges, push ups and pull ups will also be some of the best things you can do.
You want to be able to keep your wind while running and exerting your different muscle groups.

I have already printed out and started that training program but I need something a little more in depth I guess. I don't want to start doing that every day and then get burnt out in a couple weeks. I'm just trying to figure everything out, I want to know that I'm in the best condition I can be when the day of the event comes.

There is an "official" Tough Mudder training program, prepared by the Tough Mudder folks. You could start here. They've posted a selection of different workouts for the following levels of fitness... mudderling.... maybe mudder.... tough mudder.

Start at the beginning and see how you do. I did a Spartan Sprint and I found some of their training workouts just a wee bit over the top. So, I did skip those.

One thing I would suggest is starting a good strength training program to start increasing your over all strength.

Don't worry... Tough Mudders are all about teamwork. everyone helps each other out when it comes to the obstacles.

On the tough mudder website, they have training plans

http://toughmudder.com/tough-mudder-boot
-camp-training/

I would start with the lowest one if you can, or if not work up to that level.

good luck!

I have chosen to do Tough Mudder on Oct 5 and I have no clue on how to start trainging. I work out 2-3 times a week but I have never done a marathon or anything like this. I just don't know where to start, does anyone have any ideas?
