Not sure exactly what Tough Mudder is (and I can't access many websites at work to look it up) but it sounds like a mud run with obstacles?

I did my first 5K mud run last year which was put on by a local sheriff's department. I would just note don't forget about training your upper body - it is what helps get you up and over obstacles. Also, mine involved a lot of hills, so I would definitely do more hill running if I attempt it again.

I had a blast, was slow as heck, but I finished and didn't get stuck or lose a shoe like 80% of the other people seemed to.

My husband did an similar extreme race last fall. He didn't train for it, but he works out every day and runs quite a bit. He said that he thinks that all of his boxing (hitting the heavy bag,etc) gave him enough strength and stamina to get him through the race.

I know this race isn't the same as training for a 10k or half marathon, but I'm wondering if anyone has done an endurance run and has any training suggestions.
