Day 324 - Tough Mudder Training 2013
My training for this year's event is scheduled to begin on Monday March 11th. That gives me 7 weeks of training, followed by a lighter week prior to the May 11th race date. I have changed my training strategy this time around, to go for less runs, but longer runs, working on my aerobic metabolism.
I am coming off Body Beast, so I have been resistance training for the past 3 months. My strength and endurance levels are actually quite high, so I should be able to make a relatively efficient transition to perform better and increase stamina.
One of my primary objectives during my training, as it was last year, is to improve my core strength/stability while also increasing my upper body strength/endurance. There are a lot of obstacles requiring upper body strength in Tough Mudder, so I want to be ready for them. Let me know if you have any questions/comments/concerns. If so, you can e-mail me here.

Yoga and core days will be used as I see fit. I have a plethora of both yoga and core workouts to use, so I will be subbing in what I see fit.
