Gonna Get Dirty!

Yes indeed, this HMB is going to get down and dirty! My husband and I have entered a Mud Run on August 31st (click here for an explanation). We're just doing the 1-mile since I'm not up to running 3 miles just yet, plus we're not sure what the obstacles will be. I've informed him if there are walls to scale or ropes to climb, he will have to help me. He said "that's why we're doing this together, so we can help eachother." Awwww, isn't he sweet?! I'm looking forward to it even though we have NO idea what we're getting ourselves into, other than a lot of sticky mud! =)

The run is at a winery near here and afterwards we get 5 free tastings of there you go...I'm going to earn activity points to spend on booze! LOL.... Great fun!

By the way, I did Day 1 of Week 5 last night. It was just three 5-minute runs with a 3-minute walk in between. My "I am an olympian" mantra paid off once again! Tomorrow night will be two 8-minute runs with a 5-minute walk in between. I really think it will be fine because last night was great! Sunday's run might be a different story; it's 20 minutes of straight running with no walking. It could be the death of me, so if I don't post again after that day, you'll know why! ; )

Ooooh, that looks messy- and fun. Are you going to wear a costume? Ha ha.

Way to go on your run. I knew you could do it! Doesn't it feel good? Your 8-min run will be awesome, too. And you can totally do 20-min. Just don't psych yourself out. = )

Husband here. I was thinking about dressing up as a politician, since they are always getting dragged through the mud. Anyone know where I can get a Bill Clinton mask?

One of my patients was actually telling me about a run she does that's also a mud run. You'll have to tell me how it goes, it sounds like a LOT of fun!

LOL at the politician idea... very very nice. I'm glad we're at the same point in the C25K runs! It'll be nice to follow your progress. I did the 8 minutes today, not so bad!
