Tough Mudder 2017 – I did it!

The world’s best mud run
10-12 miles & 20+ Obstacles

 

This weekend I took on one of my biggest challenges yet – Tough Mudder 2017!

The past year I’ve pushed myself in the gym – training at Trib3 bootcamps every weekend plus three 5k lake runs mid-week. But I don’t think any training can mentally prepare you for Tough Mudder.

Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile mud and obstacle course designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit.

 

MUD 1With no podiums, winners, or clocks to race against, it’s not about how fast you can cross the finish line.

Rather, it’s a challenge that emphasises teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are.

MUD 4

The ‘rat hole’ had to be one of the most challenging obstacles – squeezing through the underground pipes into a mud bath.

MUD 3

It took our full squad to get over these barriers! Being 5ft3 made this one tough!

MUD 2

There’s no escaping the mud!

I’m so proud to have survived my first Tough Mudder! What can I do next?
