Alex’s Tough Mudder Journal #6 – Getting Very Real

Well, week to go and all the training is over.
Some yoga, swimming, and climbing to keep me loose as we head into the last few days.


How has the training gone? Well getting to the end of the training programme and seeing the words primal movements as a circuit and having been doing that all month fills me with some confidence. Just need to keep my feet moving on the day.

Big thanks to the Meadowhall Help for Heroes Store, for putting up my poster and being a constant reminder of why I’m going to be putting myself through hell next weekend. Huge thanks to Sweatshop Meadowhall for their advice and support and not forgetting John and David over at Football America, old friends, good friends and the Phoenix Rising shirts should look incredible on the day. Most importantly a HUGE thank you to everyone who has sponsored me, from LARP friends, my brothers in Football from the Tamworth Phoenix to family and neighbours. Most importantly I’d like to thank my wife for her unswerving love and support.


I’ve had commitments for almost Β£1400 in sponsorship but with time ticking I’m not resting on my laurels, there’s still time left to get some extra fundraising in. If you haven’t sponsored me yet, or said you would and haven’t, hit the donation link and make it happen. Help for Heroes is a great cause and deserves your help. πŸ™‚


I’ll be hoping to publish some video of the event plus some reviews of the equipment I’ve been using. The journey isn’t over. Thank you for walking it with me. πŸ™‚
