Top 10 training tips for obstacle race and mud run success
Prior to starting any training, it is recommended you have a medical examination to ensure it is safe for you to do so.
1, Have Fun
Our mud runs and obstacle races are all about having fun and doing something different with your mates, so recruiting your friends and start to train together. Make it fun and enjoy yourselves. If your new to running your local running club is a great way to start.
2. Make sure you run
Sounds simple but 5k or 10k when you’re wet and muddy can take a long time, so start to build your runs up; this will help you enjoy it rather than spending it with your back to the floor in agony with cramp.
What to do: Increase your weekly distance by 10 percent each week and avoid over or under doing it.
If you’re completely new to running, start with five minutes jogging followed by five minutes walking and work on increasing this to reduce the walking.beginnersguide
