TMT: Tough Mudder Training
So I have worked HARD at motivation. I've kept myself relatively fit but not has fit as I would like.
I had an idea.
I HATE spending money. Almost as much as I hate wasting it. One of my friends at school was looking for a team to run next year's Tough Mudder with. Let's see. $70. That's a lot of money (for a grad student). Let's do it.
So here I am. I've already run this morning (I know, right? Who ever thought I would be a morning exerciser?) Tomorrow I have my circuit training reps. I also have the motivational boost that came from seeing my interval paces this morning. I've got the muscle and I've got the stamina, I just don't have the cardio. :P
I'm going to be working on that and strength training. I've "only got" ten months to train for this thing, but I've got to be able to run 10 miles and complete an obstacle course. But I can do it!
