|I feel like this belongs here more than the sports sub.|
Recently I've put on a few more pounds than I would have liked due to being put on steroids. I am by no means fat, but eh, I'm not exactly babe body, which like everyone is where I want to be. I'm talking to an ex Olympian and now a big Marathon runner, and more than anything I just want a body to "compete" with his. He loves my body, but because I'm not a fan of it he always offers to help out.. But yeah, I'm not feeling him seeing just how out of shape I truly am and I want to do this for and by myself. But that is where I f**ked up. I signed up for a Tough Mudder, having NO idea how to do any of this on my own. For those of you who don't know what that is, it's a 10-12 mile run with a ton of obstacles, including but not limited to jumping into pools of ice, running through live electrics wires, barbwire mud crawls, ect. On a really low self confidence morning about two months ago I saw the ad on Facebook and just paid the $150 to do it before I could change my mind. I've already started training for it, but mainly just with "running" every morning. I haven't done jack shit outside of cardio, and I haven't touched upper body at all. I've already cut about 10 pounds off, woo, but really I just want to train to actually finish the tough mudder. I don't really know how. Any recommendations or tips?
The event is in about three and a half months. I don't really eat much meat, I was a vegetarian for years and haven't gone back to being a big meat eater. I do fish a lot, and I eat chicken every once in awhile. I'm not big on sugars either, really but I LOVE carbs. I know that I have to do shit outside of decent eating and cardio, but I don't know how or what. So yeah, both diet and workout tips would be incredible for me to become a little badass. I did take a "before" picture but I don't want to post it until I have an after to feel good about haha. Thanks guys!
