Mud Run Training Plans
Mud runs, mud races, obstacle course runs and adventure racing are relatively new but very exciting running events. These high energy events inject some needed fun and variety into your normal running routine. You could continue with your typical training routine and still be fairly well prepared for the unusual requirements of mud run racing, but why not switch up your training routine just a bit. By engaging in a semi-custom mud run training program you will be fully prepared for the higher intensity movements of the mud run. You will perform better and even more importantly, avoid injury.
This series of mud run training schedules are designed to meet your obstacle run, mud run and adventure racing needs. Each mud run training plan includes specific running workouts and strength training routines to prepare you for your obstacle course event. Each mud run training plan includes the following components to help you meet your obstacle course running and racing goals. Each training component includes training schedules for 4, 5, 6 or 7 workouts per week so you can customize them to your training time.
You may or may not need this build up component. The build up schedule improves your fitness to a point that you can begin the main training schedule.
Six to Eight Week Training Schedule
The primary training plan is a 6 to 8 week schedule, depending upon the specific plan, that begins with a 2 mile long run and progresses to various distances depending upon the specific plan you choose.
Strength training is important for all distance running plans, but it is especially important for mud run racing due to the climbing, jumping and crawling demands. The strength training exercises included are specifically designed for mud run racing. All strength training and plyometrics exercises are body weight based are require no specialized equipment other than some common outdoor or indoor supports.
Drills and Flexibility
There are sections included for both agility drills and flexibility exercises. Agility drills are used as a warm up and also to improve your mud run agility conditioning. Post workout flexibility training is important to maintain muscle and joint range of motion.
Terrain training is a very specific type of training for mud run race, adventure racing and obstacle course racing. Terrain training will prepare you for the specific components of your race. Each race is different, so you will need to look at the events in your race and choose the terrain training exercises most appropriate for your specific obstacle course.
Some obstacles are easy to conquer while others can be a monster. We have included some easy strategies to help you overcome even the toughest obstacle.
