Tough Mudder
« Topic Start: April 20, 2012, 11:13:13 PM »
Has anyone ever done one of the "Tough Mudder" events?  Some friends I work with talked me into signing up with them.  It's next weekend in Pennsylvania.  Apparently it's a course designed by British Special Forces - 11 miles with obstacles ranging from walls to swims through ice cold water to running through wires with 10,000 volts of electricity :shock:  It looks daunting, but at the same time it looks like a lot of fun.  These types of events seem to be hugely popular these days.  To stay in shape, I swim regularly.  I've added some running on the treadmill to my regime, and some strength training too.  I consider myself to be in decent shape, but if anyone has any first-hand experience, I'd appreciate any tips...

Thanks!

One of my nephews did one last year. The pix are astounding! He wants to do more. (Note- he's also slight;y wacko).

A coworker has done similar.  I don't know about the electricity thing though!

10000V with very few amps is not as bad as it sounds

good point. its like when a car has an "X horsepower engine". doest mean much if the car is heavy or inefficient at delivering the power to the wheels. lots of variables involved
