Jeep Momma in Beast Mode - Warrior Ready

Jeep Momma in Beast Mode  

I'm going straight from 'Mom workin' out in the gym mode' to 'Beast Mode' I'll be running, crawling, trudging, slogging and wading for 3.16 miles on May 10th. Yes, I signed up for the Warrior Dash. It will be three miles of twelve different obstacles scattered through out the course. I will be running through mud, wading through water, jumping over fire and a lot of climbing up walls. It will require endurance, balance, and a lot of upper body strength.

So as Emeril says, I'm going to need "to kick it up a notch". But at the same time I don't want to overdo it and re-injure my leg. I will continue to lift weights three days a week at the gym but increase the weights I'm pumping. Gotta build up that upper body strength. Then I will continue to run three days a week when I'm not at the gym. I will even add some core exercises and a couple of bike rides a week. If old man winter ever decides to leave! 





This is all hard to do on your own without a buddy. Since no one else I know seems up for the task I will look to one thing that motivates me -- pumps me up -- music!  
These are songs for a Warrior's workout. They bring back some great memories and help motivate me. 








As I look at this list there seems to be quite a few Heavy Metal Bands from the 70's & 80's that are my favorites. Does that make me a metal head?
