Warrior Dash

We, along with some friends, are going to be competing in the Warrior Dash on April 21, 2012.  The Warrior Dash is a 5K interspersed with obstacles... like a wooden fence to climb... and a field of "mines" to weave through... and a waterfall that beats you down as you swim under it... and a mud pit where you have to crawl under barbed wire... all culminating in a pile of hot coals you have to run over followed by a crazy fella with a sword who tries to knock you down. 
Needless to say, we are going to need to train for this.  Unlike the 1/2 marathon in 2010 which we were COMPLETELY unprepared for, we want to be prepared for this event because Chris and I are looking at it as my birthday present (my birthday is April 26). 
Our training plan is this: get into shape.  We plan to do this in the following ways: on days we are both at home before nightfall (a difficult feat these early-evening days) we will go walk/jog/run in the neighborhood; on days we are home after nightfall we will work on our muscles for the obstacles (P90X, weights, tower, yoga, etc...); we will also eat SUPER healthy (vegetables at every meal, fruits, and minimal to no sweets). 
I am posting this on the blog because hopefully if people know our plans, we will be forced to follow through for fear of embarassing ourselves.
Hopefully a positive update-post will be coming up!
