If you’re going to train for a Tough Mudder, you need to train three hours a day, give up your social life and consume protein shakes and protein shakes only, right? No, no and, you’re catching on now, no.
Event after event, Mudders of all ages, shapes and sizes discover that Tough Mudder is more mental than anything else. Don’t believe us? You will soon.
The only thing stopping you, is you.
3 unconventional ways to mentally prepare for Tough Mudder
1. Breakup with your significant other. The next morning say you were just kidding.
2. Watch every Lifetime movie ever made with that neighbor who watches you rake leaves.
3. Go to the Post Office and wait in line. When you get to the front, go to the back. Repeat four times.
