Motor City Bootcamp training schedule for the week of 8/10

“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 or anything from The End.
– This weeks training schedule’s been posted at 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.

  1. Well said! Runners World should know the difference between “Adventure” races and “Obstacle Course” races.

    Details matter.
