I am actually in lousy shape. I may very well have to crawl my way through my first TM. We were also planning on doing Kansas City and St.Louis, those are close to us. We would love to do Scotland in August as well, but that's a budget concern, again. All I know for sure is that I'm going to want to do more than one. JasonZ, speedy recovery for you and your knee. Don't do too much too soon.

Of every 100 men, 10 shouldn't even be there, 80 are nothing but targets, 9 are real fighters, we are lucky to have them, they the battle make. Ah, but the one. one of them is a warrior, and he will bring the others back. --Heraclitus,500 BC

Recovering from a knee scope myself. I just pre-registered for the St. Louis mudder in September. That ought to get me motivated to get back into shape quickly. Can't wait until the knee recovers enough to try the burpee challenge.

Recovering from surgery, but tentatively looking at a season pass. Would be so amazing to do a kind of Tough Mudder world tour. Eyeing 7 dates, hoping to be in good enough shape to start with Chicago, mid-May. If we can afford it, want to do South London, UK, in early June. Health and budget determining factors. I've had to put the TM off twice. I will get one done this year no matter what.

I recommend mixing it in with other stuff. There are some good ideas on YouTube. It isn't too cosmic. Work on your upper body strength, do some core strengthening, and have a good cardio base.

You don't have to be a superstar athlete, but you will want to be in reasonable shape if you want to tackle each obstacle and not be completely miserable throughout the race.

Just like the TM website says...

...if you can run 5-6 miles without dying, do 30-50 good pushups and around 5 pullups, you will be able to do any obstacle and get through the whole course without being miserable.

I am also doing the Columbus Ohio Mudder in April. This will be my first. I'm excited but a little nervous about it too. What sort of training plan do you all recommend?

Minnesota - Although, last year it was in Somerset, WI, which isn't too far from the MN border, so I'm going to guess that it will be there again.

Looking at buying a season pass ... is anyone already signed up for any next year? I want to do one in FL or GA or CA next year.

JUSTLIKEALICE: I am signed up for the one in Minnesota-area next July as well! (I'm guessing they'll actually do it in Somerset again as Somerset is set up to deal with that many people.)

I'm terrified. I am signed up with a group who just want to finish and I prefer that than the other group that I was offered who were going for a time under 3 hours. I'm worried about the distance as I've never run more than 4 miles. And some of the obstacles on the website look KILLER!! Am hoping this team can help me prepare as well as I can!

My chiropractor was doing the TM that day - I haven't heard from him yet as to if he made it through before the storm or not. Congrats on you and your team making it through!!

I was in 9:00 wave on Saturday's MidAtlantic Tough Mudder. At a few days shy of age 54, I was the old lady on the course and apologize if I stepped on anyones face! Before and after photos posted on blog.

My small team of three speed walked the course in 4 hours ... finishing just before the storm of all storms hit! The cold showers felt warm compared to the frigid rain. And, trying to walk up a steep hill and then down again to our SUV was almost worse than the course itself. (Flip flops and mud do not mix). Then it was a "battle royale" in the parking areas because people were getting stuck everywhere ... or sliding into parked vehicles. Very dangerous.

Sadly the infrastructure of the venue did not match up to 24000 people running the TM. I was one of the lucky few ... who started and completed the course before the cancellation.

I plan on doing it again next year.

I did So Cal in early July (and it kicked my butt - much different than Nor Cal last year). That is some motivation to get on it for Nor Cal this year - 6 weeks away.
