Now that my treadmill is no longer being held hostage by the Christmas tree I have resumed my mental health running. I must be honest, after my first couple of runs my legs were cursing me, but now I’m back into a groove.
Last September I ran my first 5K. It was something I had been wanting to do for years and never did. I then ran another one in October. Now I sort of have a 5K bug. I want to plan a few for this year. I have no desire to bump it up to a 10K or a half marathon. I’m comfortable with my 5Ks. However, I am toying with the idea of doing one of those obstacle course type races. Tough Mudder, Tough Scrambler, Bold R Dash. I’m just not totally sure yet. I guess I’m just looking for an extra push. I’ve looked at the websites, I’ve heard horror stories, but I also hear how fun they are.
I’m definitely doing two 5Ks in the fall. There are obstacle course races in spring and fall in my neck of the woods. I just can’t decide if I should go for it, and if so, when? Please help me decide.
Have you participated in a muddy obstacle course race? Please share what you thought about it.
