workout wednesday :: tough mudder

I say TOUGH, you say MUDDER!!!



That's right folks, this girl is running a Tough Mudder on Sunday because she's such a bad ass crazy.

If that video doesn't get you jacked up and pump your face off, then you're doing it wrong.

Here are 31 reasons Tough Mudders are for crazy people.

Watch this video from Time Magazine to learn more about how the race came about and what it is like to partake in the event. 

My dad asked me once, 'Why in the hell would you spend money on putting yourself in pain?!' and to be honest the guy makes a valid point... especially for a second time!!!!! Yes, this is going to be my second Tough Mudder race. I blogged about the last one here. Really though, he could have easily asked the same question every time I did the heptathlon in college track too, but for some reason I just love it. I love having something to train for. I love pushing myself in events I wouldn't normally do, and I love getting to say 'yeah, I did that and it was pretty bad ass of me.' 

My friend Jessi (who ran it with us last year) and her boyfriend Dan will also be joining Bradley and I and I am pretty excited about it! Especially because it is supposed to be 80 degrees for it instead of the 32 degrees and snow we had for the last one up in Whistler, BC. 

Wish me luck!

So in honor of my race on Sunday, I'll leave you with a Tough Mudder inspired workout:

5 Rounds For Time: 
::10 burpees
::20 push-ups
::15 thrusters (65lbs bar)

That sounds like so much fun! I just signed up for a triathlon in September and I still can't decide if I've lost my mind yet. All of the tough mudder events seem to be so far away from us, but I still want to do one, one day.
