“If you don’t want it, don’t take it. But if you don’t take it, don’t get mad at those that want to take it from you”MCB Notes– Dear Runners World Magazine, with regard to your “How to Train for a Tough Mudder or any other Adventure Race” article… Tough Mudder is not a fucking Adventure Race! See the following from wikipedia… Adventure racing (also called expedition racing) is a combination of two or more endurance disciplines, including orienteering (if an orienteering map is used) and/or navigation (when non-orienteering maps are used), cross-country running, mountain biking, paddling and climbing and related rope skills. An expedition event can span ten days or more while sprints can be completed in a matter of hours. There is typically no suspension of the clock during races, irrespective of length; elapsed competition time runs concurrently with real time, and competitors must choose if or when to rest.Want an adventure race? Check out http://www.thethunderrolls.org/ or anything from www.infiterrasports.com. The End.– This weeks training schedule’s been posted at jeffwatters.com. All group sessions must be confirmed for! Want to know where to meet for the 5:30 am spot tomorrow? Confirm with me that you’re coming and I’ll tell you where to go.– If you’ve not been to the blog lately, you’re missing out on some sport specific training sessions. I’ve been posting some pre race prep training routines to be done a few days out from your event. This week you’ll see some post event training. Event referring to anything lasting over 90 minutes. I say that because the recovery from a 5 or 10 K doesn’t necessitate much variation from what you’d normally do.
