My Tough Mudder Training Week One

So, this was my first official training week for the Tough Mudder in June near Whistler, B.C. Here is what I did and how it went.

Monday- did 1 set of the Tough Mudder Exercise card (see other post) 30 seconds on all- 60 on several others- plank and single arm Kettle Bell Swings.

Tuesday- Ran 3 miles

Saturday- Ran 3.2 miles and then 1 round of exercises listed below (however after a run I did less so 4 sets of Mountain Climbers and only to 7 on the Med Ball Slams)

Sunday- Ran 3.5 miles and then 5 of the Mountain Climber sets and 40 sit ups with a 25 lb medicine ball.

Here is my workout card for the week supplied by Belton Lubas of Element 5 Fitness in Kirkland, Wa. I will be doing this workout tomorrow with no run beforehand- see if I can make it all the way through.
