Hey Team, a big shout out to everyone that showed up today !! Its a pity the weather wasn't great for a workout but it just shows that we're as tough as nails and determined to get fit and train. I hope you all used the early morning to do your own workout in the gym or just relax and re-energize yourself for the following weeks to come ! We made a sensible decision today not to train but you better be ready come the next sess ! See you all tomorrow !

Hey guys - just got an email from Tough Mudder and they in it I found the Tough Mudder pledge. It's a good one, and something I think we all need memorise, and say over and over. Here it is:
"As a Tough Mudder I pledge that I understand that Tough Mudder is not a race, but a challenge. I put teamwork and camaraderie before my course time. I do not whine – kids whine. I help my fellow Mudders complete the course. I overcome all fears!"
I think it does a really good job of capturing exactly what the Tough Mudder is about. It's about challenging yourself, it's about teamwork and helping others, but ultimitely it's about being courageous and conquering that little voice inside you that tells you that you aren't good enough.
I know there are a couple of people in the group who are still unsure if they are even going to do it, because they don't think they can. I hope this helps to change their mind. Not trying at all, is a bigger failure than having a go, and falling short.
