From now till the day of the race I will post information, training tips, nutritional tips and much more to get you ready for the big day.
The race is 10km so depending on your fitness levels I would recommend to run 5km twice a week at least 2 to 4 weeks prior to the race, this would allow efficient time, recovery & adaption for running a 5km. You can progress to a 7km run and eventually a 10km run but to be honest a 5km will suffice, for those of you that have never run a 10km don't worry because when you have obstacles in between and the experience of the atmosphere your adrenaline gets pumping and that will push you through more than know!!!
To combat each obstacle it's all about your body's ability to overcome it, so what better training than body weight training! That's exactly what we do in our bootcamps from squats, lunges, presses, pulls, crawling, jumping and loads more to increase your strength & stamina in moving your body with ease, so keep up with your bootcamps.
Personally I would recommend once to twice a week because I'm sure many have a busy schedule but if you can do more then better!
By the way there is a reward at the end of the race not only the feeling of accomplishment for completing it but they have a massive beer garden so when we've all finished we can enjoy a good (well deserved) pint of beer together!
Right guys lets get training for it.
