Been doing lots of exercise lately, gym and classes etc but never been a runner, have started running the past few weeks and can do about 2k before I need to walk for a bit.
Do you think it would be possible le to do a 5k mud obstacle in 4 weeks time? Obviously will have 4 more weeks of running under my belt plus the run will only be about 0.5-1k at a time before having to stop and complete an obstacle.
Not sure if I signed up I would be setting f myself up to fail???
