One word describes Tough Mudder and that is “SAVAGE”. This 12 mile onslaught was the most testing event I have ever took part in – the good news is Tim, Dan and myself managed to complete the whole course. Leading up to the event both Tim and I were a little nervous being it our first time; Dan was kind enough to give words of advice, the months leading up to the event as he had already took part in a Tough Mudder back in May.
After the 12 miles I could hardly lift my legs, this was due to one of the obstacles called the “Mud Mile”, in fact it turned out to the “500ft high 3 mile, mud mile (I know that sounds odd). The worst part was the Artic Enema which is so cold that when you hit the water its like being punch all over and kicked in the sweets at the same time. Sodding bloke who made sure nobody died told Tim and I to lower ourselves in slowly, this was a fail and a complete lie as once we were out we noticed other chucking themselves in as far as possible.
Equally as painful but much more terrifying was being electrocuted by both the “Electric Eel and “Electric Shock Therapy” which I thought was going to be a nasty static shock! OH HOW I WAS WRONG! This was like being plugged into the national grid, nearly took my arm off.
