#wtm2016 World's Toughest Mudder - Day 1

I am planning to use this website to track my training and preparation for the Worlds Toughest Mudder on November 12 and 13, 2016.

As a little background - I am a 39 year old that I would consider to be a fairly good shape. I have history of middle and long distance running - having run a marathon in 2011 but nothing more than a 10K since then. In addition, I am a former wrestler and current youth wrestling coach. I generally workout at the gym approximately 3 times a week for about an hour each time, which varies on scheduling. Sometimes I do 5 and sometimes 0. I generally compete in 1 or 2 obstacle races a year, either Spartan or ToughMudder or both over the past 3 years so I have done 5 so far (3 mudders, 2 Spartans) I will compete in 9 days in the Tough Mudder (Rockford).

Today's workout - ran on a treadmill for 1 hour, ran 7 miles at a 8:27 pace throughout the entire time.
