I started with the Rugged Maniac 5-week training program. Tried the mudder training program on the TM site but it did not hold my attention longer than a week. Just started the MH program you mentioned below.

Hey I am doing the mudder this May 2013. I am following the mudder boot camp located on the site where u sign up. I do that 3 days a week plus two days of 60min cardio with 15mins abs. Once i get to one month post time i will switch to the tough mudder training plan that Menshealth posted online a simple google search will bring it right up! Good luck!! totaly freaking out!
I would suggest running (or walking) hills!! Other than that, a simple strength training plan that incorporates overall fitness; dead lifts, bench press, pull ups, shoulder press, core work. I lost 100 lbs before doing my first Tough Mudder last September, spent 8 months sweating my a$$ off on the stair master doing intervals so I thought I was ready for the distance of the TM. The first hill almost killed me! Tons of people dropped out on that first hill. Luckily, my friend helped me regain my focus and I trudged on. 11 miles later I finished the course. I did skip several obstacles because my energy level was so low that it was all I could to keep my feet moving forward and making it to the end was the most important thing for me. Best of luck and enjoy the course!

I'm starting training for a Mudder in April. Does anyone have any recommended training plans that have worked well for you? I want to make sure I'm on a good track to start and finish strong for my event. Thanks in advance!
