In preparation for it, I am going to enter the Virginia Beach Rock & Roll Half Marathon over Labor Day weekend. This is something I have always wanted to do so I'm pretty excited about that also. I'm also going to incorporate a lot of trail running. Cherokee Park, Bernhiem Forest, and Iroquois Park are all on my agenda.
I was even thinking of getting in on the Urbanathlon in October but haven't decided. If you are interested in doing that, let me know and I'll head up. If I can't get anyone to run it with me, I'll just stick around here with my trails and strength training.
Speaking of strength training, I had a great workout today and one that I will build upon in preparation for the Tough Mudder. I went 1/2 mile, 30 pushups, 1/2 mile, 30 squats, 1/2 mile, 30 situps, 1/2 mile, 30 inverted rows. I was absolutely spent. Good stuff.
So if you have done a Tough Mudder, Urbanathlon, or anything like that in the past, let me know. I'd love to hear how you trained for it. I have an idea of how I'm going to train, but I'm definitely open to suggestions on how you did.
