Now that the evenings are getting lighter, and the worst of winter is behind us, a lot of the lads in our Facebook group are dusting off their running shoes and signing up to local races to keep themselves accountable.
However, a lot of lads haven’t run that much in the past, or have tried but ended up injured or in pain.
You might see the words “Tough Mudder” and think it’s way out of reach.
But it doesn’t have to be.
Here’s what some of the 30+ Men’s Fitness lads have tackled recently.
We did the 10 mile Tough Mudder last year and it’s really worth committing to something I joined the 30+ Essex Bootcamp in July 2018 with no intentions to even thinking of doing it. After completing the 12 weeks boot camp there was so many people in the group doing marathons and other OCRs so thought why not give it a go. It was bloody hard and I faced a few fears and overcome them , all with the help of my over 30 brothers and sister Simone. In my head, I was nowhere near fit enough and was very apprehensive when I turned up up But one thing was made very clear to me when I arrived it’s not a race it’s about being part of a team and helping others. Believe me give it a go!

Did Tough Guy at the end of January 2019, did Tough Mudder and 2 Spartan in 2018, Tough Mudder and 3 Spartan in 2017 – all because of 30+, would never have considered anything like it before joining the Tregs Train, now I’m hooked!

I completed my first 10k (muddy woody) ever in February this year, alongside my fellow Hereford lads and foxes. I started with 30+ Men’s Fitness last June, and during my first session I couldn’t run 200mtrs without stopping, I remember feeling embarrassed/ashamed at the end of the session at how unfit I had become. However Shaun and the lads, gave me loads of encouragement and support which made feel good so i went back again and again, the benefit is remarkable, training and making new friends, in a non judgemental setting, whilst having a laugh and getting fit suits me just fine. I’ve got another 10k mud runner booked for April and there’s more in the pipeline. Happy days! 👍

None of these lads were born with running shoes on. They just followed the 30+ methods to drop weight and increase strength and stamina.
You can do the same.
If you’ve always fancied tackling a Tough Mudder, but felt it’s out of reach, then I have the perfect training plan for you.
Check out our Tough Runner plan. This includes the 6 week Running Man plan, and entry to the London Tough Mudder on the 4th May. We’ve got over 100 30+ lads already booked and paid, so you’ll be running with a massive group of supportive lads. No one gets left behind!
