I registered for the Camp Pendleton World Famous Mud Run 10k. Thanks to a Living Social deal for half off this race, Matt and I both signed up for the race June 9th. It’s 6.2 miles of obstacles and mud and marines. Basically, I’m really excited yet so scared. Here’s the video they have on their site if you want to check it out:
I’m really excited to have another race to look forward to but oh man—this looks pretty crazy. Guess that means I need to start running a bit more!
That means today I’m going to start “training” for the freaktastic event by doing a longer run outside after work. Four miles is the minimum mileage I plan to do—6 would be ideal. I say “training” because I feel the best way to train for the muddy obstacle course is to go roll around in the mud, jump over fences, and crawl under cars.
You know how Friday’s post was all about how I’m going to start eating healthy? Well, I think I subconsciously challenged myself to eat worse. I haven’t eaten as badly as I did this past weekend in a long time. The problem was the fact that we were out and about so much, meaning we ate out a lot. Delicious burgers, burritos, pizza, ice cream, and beer were my downfall.
Oh well. Starting fresh on the don’t-eat-so-much-crap thing today!
The out-and-aboutness that happened included burgers on Friday night and a baseball game Saturday to see the Padres vs. the SF Giants.
It was a beautiful day to chill at the ballpark. Plus, we were in a section with a lot of kids, so that was entertaining. I get pretty bored watching sports (because I’d rather just play them). Therefore, people watching kept me busy.
Sunday was the usual productive day we make it, what with groceries and such. Does anyone else feel the need to carry in as much as humanly possible?
I always end up with about 75% of the bags, and Matt takes the last few. It’s a bit ridic, but I guess I inflict the pain upon myself. I just can’t accept taking two trips. That’s all.
Questions for you:
Have you ever done a mud run before? Do you want to?
Are you registered for any races coming up?
