How much training is enough training? This is a good question. No one from Team Uppercut has run the Tough Mudder before. We have no way of gaging how much is truly enough. Personally, I don’t believe there is ever enough. There is always more you can do or should do. I don’t think you can ever be fully prepared for anything like this. That’s what excites me about Tough Mudder, the anticipation of the unknown.
How much muscle strength do we need? Do we have the mental fortitude to finish the race? Is our training helping to build a mentally strong team? How much pain will I endure before I quit? Where is that line? Have I ever crossed it in training? Should we be pushing each other to cross it to strengthen the team as a whole? I don’t know the answers to these questions. I have a good idea what we should be doing. My personal goals as a team member of Uppercut are this: to always encourage my team members, to never leave any of them behind and to never be last.
I have recently been viewing different videos of people training for Tough Mudder. I came across this video of a bunch of guys who ran the race last week in Georgia. The video shows a little bit of what they were doing to get ready for the race.
