So how do you train for the Tough Mudder race in July? Why, enter a slightly shorter version of course!
Bertrams‘ Derri Evans took part in the Gladi8or race at the weekend, an 8 mile cross-country trail run with obstacles through Thetford Forest. She says:
“There was a lot of water and mud involved. It was gruelling trying to wade through the mud and rivers – especially since it was pretty windy and chilly in general. I am very bruised and battered but feeling like I can now up my training ready for the Tough Mudder.
I managed to finish the 8 miles in 1 hour and 13 minutes and I was the 4th girl to cross the finish line – so I am pretty proud of myself, my training is obviously paying off. I am proud of my time – especially knowing that I beat some of the guys in my team which was a great feeling – girl power! Haha.
Bring on the Tough Mudder in July 🙂 “
Not content with just one training run of this type, Derri has a few more obstacle races to do over the next few months in preparation, so look out for further updates. Here’s her fundraising page again.
