Muddy? Tough! Gary!
The Challenge
Taking on the Tough Mudder challenge in Skipton, Yorkshire
The Charity
A friend passed away earlier this year who was a member of the club. He faced real challenges every day and didn't shirk from them, so I'm sure I can splash about in a few muddy puddles and jump over a couple of obstacles!
The Training
For the running part, I'm doing some marathon training (which will come in handy for a marathon I'm running later in the year). For the strength part, I'm doing pull ups, tyre tipping, swinging along a ladder laid flat at work, and lots of other stuff designed to knacker me out - which is working! And for good measure, I'm on course in my aim to row a million metres this indoor season.
