I’m not sure if anyone calls them “goolies” anymore, but mine were freezing after jumping into a container full of icy-water at the weekend.
Why was I jumping into ice-water?
…Tough Mudder of course.
An 11.5 mile trail run with lots of weird and wonderful obstacles, such as goolie shrinking ice-water.
You know what though?
It was great fun!
Myself and two of my boot camp members (Emma and Daisy) are now official “Mudders”.
A few of the other obstacles were…
– jumping through fire
– crawling through tunnels
– climbing 10ft walls
– wading through thick mud
– being kicked in the face (thanks Emma!)
I’m probably not doing a fantastic job of selling it to you, but trust me, it was a lot of fun.
I’ve done all sorts of running races in the past and I usually get bored stiff half way through.
But this event has a nice mix as it uses strength as well as cardiovascular fitness.
If you’re relatively “fit” you should give it a whirl.
If not, then we can sort that out by joining this site.
You’ll not only get fit, but you’ll lose weight too.
Give me a shout if you have any questions on Tough Mudder or exercise in general.
