Didn't want to put this up on the main forum yet but wanted to keep a bit of a log of it for myself and anyone else that is interested down the line.
I've decided to enter this Tough Mudder - Probably the Toughest Event on the Planet in Autumn this year (2013)
I'm going to do it for a few reasons, firstly because I'd had a drink so my judgement was impaired when a friend asked me to; but secondly because it's IMHO a good thing to do for charity.
Third and final reason is that my Great Granddad passed away in 2012, he was a top bloke and the one thing that always stood out to me was that he never once in all the time I can remember whined or complained about anything... Even towards the end.
That's kind of the aim of the game in the tough mudder and I think he would have liked that.
It's not a fun run, it's going to be difficult considering I'm pretty unfit at present and I'm going to have to stick with it so I don't show myself up
I'm getting in early with the training in the hope that I can build it up over the next 9 months and do it well
