DON’T WORRY ABOUT WEIGHTS

You can get all the strength you need from body­weight ex­er­cises. Dur­ing train­ing runs for Tough Mud­ders, do ten burpees ev­ery 2km to pre­pare for the stop-start na­ture of the race.

RECORD YOUR TRAIN­ING

Down­load so­cial train­ing app Strava to mon­i­tor your ses­sions. It’ll let you share your run­ning and cy­cling routes on­line as well as see other peo­ple’s so you can see how you mea­sure up by com­par­i­son.

GO RUN­NING

Don’t just fo­cus on the ob­sta­cles. Go hill run­ning – a 2010 study in MedicineAndS­cienceIn Sport­sAndEx­er­cise found that run­ners who var­ied their pace on dif­fer­ent gra­di­ents had a more con­sis­tent level of oxy­gen con­sump­tion, al­low­ing them to keep go­ing for longer.
