    No weight at all. Just controlled movements. No difference than taking a kneel. Just on one leg rather than both

    Try interval training instead of just running or jogging.

    Those two things are like polar oposites lol
    Pick one.

    Running is a lot like lifting in the sense weekly volume is key.

    Never posted in here before but I follow along.

    I do 5-10 OCRs a year from 3 miles to ~18 miles in length. Interval training for these types of events are the most bang for your buck. If you do a Spartan and are in an Open heat, you will be waiting at obstacles due to bottlenecks. That means you will be running at max a mile then waiting a few minutes to do the obstacle, rinse and repeat.

    For a 10 mile OCR you don't actually need to run more than 5 miles in training, if your goal is just to finish it. Now if your goals are certain times/places, then you really need to mix in interval training with a one or two longer (slower) endurance training sessions a week.

    When I'm training for Spartans my endurance sessions are typically 8-15 mile runs (depending on how long the event is) and at every mile marker I get down and do 60 burpees.

    Yes but marathons are 26.2 miles of straight running vs. shit like tough mudders are 13.1 miles of pure hell and obsticles. Different types of training.

    I get the endurance part I was just dropping the volume suggestion because a lot of runners forget about it.
    Volume is what makes the difference between finishing a race and enjoying the race haha.

    I’m trying to get back into running. I really miss it. Unsure if my foot can handle what I used to do.

    FWIW I hate cardio other than hitting the heavy bag and rowing.

    Walking for about an hour at a speed of 4.0MPH will burn roughly the same amount of calories you burned running for 20 mins.

    You lose some of the cardiovascular health benefits and “after burn” but it’s much easier on my joints and still is something.

    You are quite a beast.

    I can handle the runs but the burpees would put me to the test

    I question my sanity half through every one of those runs. Especially now in the New England winter. But something about those early morning trail runs keep dragging me back to them.

    I take my time with the burpees and watch my HR and do my best to avoid spikes. Since each failed obstacle at a Spartan is 30 burpees I like to make sure I can handle more than I will need to.

    I can't imagine. My mind loves carbs. They make me happy. My body loves them more. I don't perform well at all without them.

    I always wanted to do one and I had started getting out of shape. I was 24/25 and stopped lifting and wasn't running. I knew I had to make some changes in the way I was living, so I signed up for my first Tough Mudder. It was I think 11.5 miles and at a ski resort in Vermont. Didn't put the training I should have into it, but I finished and felt pretty damn good. I got the bug from the feeling at mile 10 during that race knowing that I was almost done and had accomplished something I felt proud of.

    I am 5ft 10inch and during that race was 190#. Right now I'm at 150# and starting to run 1 to 2 days less a week and lifting more on those days. I lost a good bit of fat, but now I need to start building more muscle and stop looking like one of those skelator runners.
