Training for an event to help you reach your goals

Mudderella?……Mudderella…..MUDDERELLA!!

Working as a personal trainer for many years, I encouraged individuals to train towards an event. It gave a tangible goal to work towards and one that was achievable.  It gave many people a direction for their training.

Coming off of a 6 week recovery from surgery – which I might add is awful – I needed a new goal…so what did I decided to do? Mudderella!  Having done many different style of events (from running 10k up to 1/2 marathons, adventure challenges, triathalons, cycling events) I felt I needed a new challenge.

I had never done a get-down-and-dirty obstacle course event so I looked into Mudderella.

SOOOOOO, what would training for this type of event look like?

Run lots of hills – EEEEK!

Crawl around in a push-up postition – AAAHH!
