HI,

I’m doing my 2nd TM in sept!  Since you spin you already must have pretty good endurance.  I would def. start lifting a bit.  You’ll need help getting over the 12 ft. walls (3 in a row) but your FI and others will apprecaite if you can help lift yourself a bit!!  They always try to incorporate some insane hills!!  Insane!  Their brutal for EVERYONE, but try to train for hills anyway, it’ll help… a little.  In my experience the quarter pipe is the hardest obstacle.  Let your FI go first.  You’ll need him and a random buddy to get you up.  Run as fast and as far up the ramp as you can and reach for the ledge not the hands reaching for you. 

Make sure you stay well hyderated the week before and idk if this applies to you but I wouldn’t participate in any extreme wedding dieting the week before hand.  

Good Luck!!  You’ll have a lot of fun!!

@Woodstock:  DH and I are signed up for the one in October! I’m super excited about it. For training we’ve been doing Crossfit and some cross-training classes at our regular gym.

For the last week or so I’ve been focused on learning how to climb a rope. We looked over the obstacles for our particualar event and a 15 foot rope was one of them. They do have a training schedule on the TM website as well.

My trainer was invited to do the World’s Toughest Mudder (a 24 hour running of the TM race) and he suggested that you at least be able to do the following:

Run at least 6 miles

5 pull ups

30 push ups (full push ups on your toes, not your knees)

Hold a plank (forearm or pushup position) for 3 minutes
