Tough Mudder is in five days. DID YOU HEAR ME?! Five days!!!!!!!!!! I don’t even know what the heck I am thinking even trying to attempt this. I thought I would have been a bit more prepared by now but I’m not. At all. The only thing I can say that I do have is my outfit. My amazing friend Quinton found these fabulous pants online (our team name is Animal Print Pants Outta Control):
I ordered #464 and cannot wait to rock them. That’s the part I am most excited about. I am depending on all of my teammates to drag me through each obstacle and yes, the pants might get ripped and dirty but it’s better that it happens to these (they were $7) than a pair of Lululemon tights. I am definitely not ready for this but I am still looking forward to it (a little). I won’t even read the emails that TM is sending me. I don’t want to know the order of the obstacles or anything. I am just going to go there and fight for my life.
This past week/weekend was so busy. Dean has family here from out of town, it was my cousin’s birthday, and Dean and I went condo shopping (!!!). I thought I’d be able to get all of my planned workouts in (especially my runs) but that didn’t happen. Here’s what went down:SUNDAY: 6 mile run MONDAY: REST TUESDAY: Crossfit + Insanity Fit test WEDNESDAY: Hill training (2 miles, 4 hills) + foam roll THURSDAY: Insanity Plyo Cardio FRIDAY: 3 miles + Insanity Cardio Power and Resistance SATURDAY: REST
This week I want to get in more runs and more foam rolling. Why can’t I ever foam roll??? I am on the right track with the running so far, got 7 miles in today:
Maybe I can foam roll during the commercials while I watch Bachelor Pad tonight.
Have you ever gone into a race or event unprepared?
What days do you usually take as rest days?
