That looks like one could get dirty and sweaty. No Thanks. Do they make a video game version? hehe

Like so many challenges of this type it looks like team-work is key. You "guys" must train to overcome obstacles.

For example, weaker members must hoist the stronger up on higher obstacles first...and let them pull everyone up. It does not work well the other way in most cases.

Train alone, but also train together to motivate and learn the strengths and weaknesses of the team.

This allows you to find a pace and cadence to the group and will prove beneficial.

Go with Z-TGLB-Ms so you can still maneuver...and the Z part would make them very easy to spot in the muck.

Josh, it's "TEAM BUSSEKIN", hence there's no individual training. You have to train with the ladies:

-5 minutes Yoga - 3 repetitions
-30 minutes shoe shopping - 3 separate shop
-5 minutes gossipping - 3 repetitions alternated with the yoga.

You can however choose to run by yourself to the Shopping Mall.

Enjoy!

I'll get me coat.



First rule of Yoga...the ladies take the front row...that is all. wink

Need2Know, I'll let the participants expose themselves. So far the announced list includes Josh, Pokey, and myself. Thanks for the input on training as well.

A GoPro is a great idea! I'll have to see if I can borrow one for the race! I'm sure that it won't be a problem since I know quite a few guys who use them whenever they wakeboard, so it'll already be water ready.

For training, I have a large barn that I've been building a loft ropes coarse in. Mix that with running (through the woods, metro-parks, and down the road), going to the gym, and boxing and I think I might be almost ready. wink

Dirty and sweaty is part of the fun. laugh

Seriously...anything I can suggest to help is my pleasure.

I was once very much into this type of stuff. And I cannot insist enough that teamwork is key. You guys already know each other very well, so you're ahead of the game.

I figured that since we know each other so well right now that we'd have a pretty decent advantage, but we do have a lot of work ahead of us. We've got to figure out what strengths and weaknesses we've got and which obstacles are going to be the ones that give us the most trouble. I'm sure that we would all be willing to take any advice that we can get.
