Long time no see...

I am currently about 9 weeks out from my first mud run. My husband and I are doing a local one that is a beginner type run. A friend of ours did it last year and said I could certainly do it. I'm really trying to put myself out there this year. Not just physically but to help myself mentally with my social anxieties. I'm noticing the more I get out there and do stuff out of the norm it is getting easier.

Currently I'm 3 days into the Couch 2 5K app program from Run Double. I should finish the program with a week to spare provided I keep exercise a priority from now until April. I am also following a free Mud Run Training guide I found online. It mixes running with days of body weight exercises.

I'm pretty excited, yet scared about the whole thing. I'm not a huge social bug and I know these are pretty social events. I'm not embarrassed to run in front of people or anything I just know how my anxieties can get to me so I figure the more prepared I am for this (even if it is an easier race) the better I will feel about the entire adventure.

    I really want to try a mud run someday soon. I did the C25K program last year, and it jump-started my running. :) So glad you're finding it helpful as well. emoticon

    I'm so excited for you! I've not done a mud run yet, but I'd like my next (only my second) 5K to be one of those. I am 7 weeks into my Couch to 5K program and it's really getting so much easier. And I discovered I love to run outdoors and not on the treadmill. Good luck with your training and be sure to let us know how the mud run goes!
