Day 122 - Tough Mudder Tactics: Kiss of Mud
Over the next several days, I am going to spend some time going through each of the obstacles that I completed at the Tough Mudder Toronto event. I will give some advice on how I handled the obstacle, as well as give any hints/tips that I may have learned from others doing the event as well.
The very first obstacle at Tough Mudder Toronto was Kiss of Mud.
Eat dirt as you crawl commando-style under barbed wire set 8 inches from the ground. This obstacle is true to it’s name – Mudders must belly-crawl through mud in order to avoid getting snagged by the barbed wire above. On some courses, the Kiss of Mud is set on an uphill, increasing the level of difficulty. To prepare for this obstacle, start crawling in any mud you come across, or, do our Tough plank series (alternating low & high planks – fast!).
