THERE ARE LESS than three weeks to go until Tough Mudder arrives in Ireland for the first time.

With that in mind, here’s a suggested training schedule for the event, which takes place at Punchestown Racecourse on 4 and 5 October, from personal trainer Pat Divilly.

Training three weeks out (to be done three times over a week):

  • Begin with a warm up
  • 5km run to start: Go at your own pace and to be done on soft ground
  • Plank and leg raises: 30 seconds of each repeated for 4 sets of each
  • Five-minute circuit: One-minute squats, one-minute push ups, one-minute lunges, one-minute plank push ups, one-minute burpees
  • Pull Ups: 5 sets of 5 or 3 x 60-second hold.
  • Ice bath: For two minutes 
  • And to finish… a full body stretch and some foam rolling
