Tough Mudder Training Week 4

17 Comments 2141 views

Fourth week of Tough Mudder Training complete! I’m feeling good but not great. Honestly, it doesn’t feel like I’m making any progress. I guess I am. The runs are getting a little easier and I’m able to transition from run to drill pretty seamlessly but time seems to moving faster then I am. If that makes sense.

Anyway, just letting you know what I’m feeling. On to this week’s mudder workout…

  1. ~1/3 mile Run
  2. 3 sets of squat presses and bicep curls with calf raises.
  3. ~1/3 mile Run
  4. Sand bag flipping in seated position and a jump back (like the second half of a burpee) (not sure I’m explaining this one correctly)
  5. ~1/3 mile Run
  6. Straight Leg Dead Lifts with 35lb kettle bell and then sprint in place (repeat 3 times)
  7. ~1/3 mile Run
  8. The tires! Repeat this..


    5 times and then flip tire back to starting position.
  9. ~1/3 mile Run
  10. Repeat this…


    3 times
  11. ~1/3 mile Run

Now that I wrote all that out I’m reconsidering. Maybe I am making progress afterall. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    You’re right handed, aren’t you? It isn’t very noticable (your form is BEAUTIFUL!) but when you’re in plank with the hand weights, your movements are much more deliberate on the left side; like you have to concentrate more on that. I only noticed it because I’m the same way. I’m a leftie. I have to really focus on the right side. I’m certain I don’t look nearly as awesome as you!!!
    In case I haven’t said it lately, I wanna be bad-a$$ like you when I grow up!! I planned to start Warrior Dash training tonite but instead, I’m writing a paper and slacking on FB. Almost done with my MAED so I can focus on my body and give the brain a break! lol

    Awesome! Don’t forget how far you’ve come and give yourself credit! A 35 lb kettlebell. OMG! That’s a guy’s weight. I was proud of 15 :)

    Keep it up!

    The run course is ten miles-you should be doing that and at least one run of over 10 before the race- or it’s going to take you hours and hours. The run is the “thing” you should be focusing on. Forget all this tire pushing B.S. or get in the weight room and do bench, squats, pull-ups and dead lift.

    I can run 10 miles now. I ran a half a few months ago. That’s not a big deal for me. I want to be overall stronger and more versatile for the obstacles. You train your way and I’ll train mine.

    So inspiring Roni! I recently read an article about adding power to your workouts which made me realize how much I held back for fear I would need it in the end. Your post is asking me to consider that I am still not pushing as hard as I could. I will do an all out tomorrow and see!

    Oh my gosh! You are so strong! I work out every day and you made me tired just reading what the workout consisted of. I think I need to bump up the intensity of my exercise. You rock!

    That’s a very creative way to work out with the tire. Look forward to watching more of your workout videos!
