    What's up people from the old RWOL forum. Just found this forum.

     

    Signed up for a Tough Mudder in June and have started building up my mileage after piddling around just doing 4mi every now and again.

     

    Just got up to 6mi.

     

    Nice to see most of the usual suspects from RWOL here.

        Hey, welcome!


        Tough Mudder races scare the crap out of me.  Please be careful.  (Do I sound like somebody's mother?  Well, I am LOL)

        Slow and steady wins the....  wait a second! I've been lied to!

              For good reason. My youngest DD did a tough mudder a couple years ago and turned her knee backwards landing after jumping off the last obstacle into the mud... Did some damage to her knee which eventually healed, but it made me nearly pass out just hearing about it after the fact.

                Thanks, folks.  I had been concerned with injuries in the past.  I have a friend who has done 5-6 of them (obstacle races) with no issues.

                 

                So, I guess it's one of those "you never know until you do it" deals.

                 

                I'm just building mileage now. I work every other weekend, but I don't see I 10K in my area until may 25th anyway. I may very well do that race.

                  As a technical note, one is not a "usual suspect" if already proven guilty.  Joking

                  Short term goal: 17:59 5K

                  Mid term goal:  2:54:59 marathon

                  Long term goal: To say I've been a runner half my life.  (I started running at age 45).
