So I was participating in #fitblog chat last night on Twitter and we started talking about mud runs. I remember that I had written about Obstacle Racing on The Broken Heel Diaries last July.
So it’s official I’m going to train and run the Warrior Dash in Barrie on July 21, 2012. The race is 3.24 miles so just a little over a 5k. This I like because I’m good with just training for 5Ks vs anything longer. The killer part is the “obstacles”. These include climbing through a ropes course, crawling through pitch black trenches, climbing over a wooden barricade, crawling over nets, climbing hay bales, stampeding through a scrapyard, rappeling down a ravine, sliding down a slope, climbing cargo nets, leaping over fire and then scrambling under barbed wire in the mud to the finish line. No Big D.
So here’s the plan for training. I compete at the end of April in my fitness competition for the year so I can move on in May, June & July to Warrior Dash training. I’m thinking the obvious running, spider man crawling on the gym floor and rock climbing for some super upper body strength. Other than that I’m pretty sure I’ll just wing it!
Right now I think I have a team of 5 including me that will run it together. I just want to complete the course! Anyone else in Toronto game?
