One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Tough Mudder Training
Week 8

8 Comments 1556 views

Just coming out and saying this because I’m proud of myself… I ROCKED last week. Seriously. I didn’t miss a day. I ran 5 miles on Friday, 9 miles on Sunday and these drills on Saturday with some short runs in between…

Notice all the weights stacked. The ones 20 lbs and lighter I did bicep curls and squat represses before the lunges and then stacks.

I went one way then did 5 assisted pull ups. Then went back and repeated the sequence before my short run.

Notice how much I’m struggling at the top. There was a 50lbs sandbag in there and it was wet. WAY harder then I anticipated. I guided it down and did it again before running.

I think there was one more drill but I can’t remember. That’s why I’m a little wishy washy on this training recap. Hopefully the videos give you a few ideas if you are looking.

I updated my training chart. Can’t believe how close it’s getting!

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.

    Amazing! You are doing so great! I don’t think I’d want to do a mudder, but you never know, right? I mean, I never thought I’d want to run a half-marathon, just completed my second on Sunday and have a 2012 goal of a full marathon. You, Roni, are a real inspiration!
