Oh, I definitely think technique was a large factor. My guess:

60% form
20% conditioning
10% old injury on same foot
10% shoes

The shoes are Asics, but they're a little over a year old, and my foot started to feel like it was bigger than the shoe after a few miles. Going running with a marathon-running buddy next week to get his input on my form. Hope to learn something.

But as far as Mudder is concerned, I'm not worried about the running. There are so many obstacles that you're never running more than a mile or so at a time.
It's the cold, muscle fatigue, and cold that are on my mind.


This was what I thought going in as well, but is probably the wrong approach. It is a lot of running and a lot of really tough running. I would suggest finding yourself a hilly trail and working up so you can run about 10 miles comfortably. Once you get out there and your shoes are soaked, you're weighed down by mud and you're trying to run uphill and side hill on uneven ground, you'll understand why the running preparation was so necessary.

Did the Mudder on Saturday. Total blast.

I think I'm addicted. I can't wait to do the April Mudder in St. Louis.

Yep, good time. I'm doing the one next summer in Minneapolis. Last time it was a bit chilly, should be a different beast in the heat.

cool. What were your times and did you see any serious injuries?
I've wanted to do one for a number of years now but the one in Ontario is always too close to marathon season. The one in Toronto next year is in May so I may do it.

I was on a 3-hour pace before I cramped up in the 8th mile. Finished around 3:30.

Times really aren't something to go in worried about, though. There are so many people on the course that some obstacles will back up quite a bit. It's best to just go in trying to push yourself as much as possible when uou have the chance and have fun with the people who go with you.
