Dancing in mud puddles ...

If you have read some of my posts over the last 6 months you may remember that I have not identified any specific "goal" that I would like to work towards this year.  In fact, I haven't mentioned anything! 

That could be because in an off handed way my goal was to just be consistent with my training and maintain my strength, my general fitness and to keep the balance between training, work and spending more time with the family. 

Now that I have digressed I will come straight back to what this post is about ...

I now have a training goal ...

In some crazy ass brain explosion well thought out process .. oh who am I kidding, it just sounds like fun .. well, I think it might be fun ... it's certainly going to test my fitness, strength, commitment, determination, ability to wear head to toe mud ...

I have registered a team of girls I work with and some clients to participate in the Brisbane event of ...




This is how The Stampede is advertised on the website ...

"The Stampede is more than just a race, The Stampede is an epic challenge that will push you to your limits.
Run wild through a gruelling 5km or 10km obstacle course. You’ll crawl through thick mud, climb up cargo nets, slide down the giant slip & slide, run through live wires charged with 10,000 volts and wash it all down with a beer on one crazy day."

Ok, so I'm not really fussed on the idea of the 10,000 volts but I'll deal with that one later.

Not sure what training I'm going to subject myself to over the next 3 months but I'm damn sure that I'm going to finish this "race" in one hell of a fashion! 

I'll definitely keep you updated on my training progress!

Now, I know that you are all going to want to rush in and join me on my new quest so check out the website above and get some folks together and I'll see you on the day!

Found your blog via bbeingcool - love this idea. I had originally wanted to do Tough Mudder but felt that was a bit much given my state of fitness but looking at this I think I would LOVE to give the 5km route a try. Do you have a team or are you doing it as an individual ?
Have a great weekend and good luck tomorrow with the kettle bell qualification.
