    Just found out I'm also doing a Warrior Dash with the wife in addition to the Tough Mudder.

    Be completely pain free, return to around previous (pre-injury) strength levels, pistol past parallel on both sides, strict 1 arm push up on both sides, pass the HKC

    A year and a half ago, I was basically told by my doctors that I would never be able to run again without experiencing debilitating neck pain and exacerbating strength and sensation loss in my arms. Thankfully, I kept asking for second opinions. Finally found a doctor that could help @ Walter Reed. After ONE surgery, it took me 4 weeks to work up to running. 6 Months later, my running is entirely pain free, and have regained virtually all of the strength, dexterity, and sensation in both of my arms. Forget the opiates, I haven't even needed NSAIDs since surgery.

    May 2012: Tough Mudder in DC. October 28, 2012: Marine Corps Marathon.

    **** you broken neck.

    Nice Cassius. And Props hitting up the MARCOR Marathon. I need to get into that one of these days, though I am getting into a Tough Mudder here in April.

    Way back in HS, my buddy broke his neck during a wrestling meet. A few months later we we placed third at state in track. Definitely cool to see people bounce back from those types of injuries. We actually just had a newer female student fracture her 3rd and 4th vertebrae, hopefully she has a good comeback as well.

    I came down with Glandular Fever/Mono a little before Christmas; I had been advised not to exercise for awhile, and certainly no contact sports. Sparring is out of the question, but I've come back for a bit of training after a month off. It was gut wrenching to see a year of hard work (6 training sessions a week, 3 at a boxing gym, and 3 out at a university boxing club, up from my previous 2 years of only 3 sessions a week) just go down the drain.

    My goal is to start running: I generally have great sparring fitness, but I don't do any running. I also eat like a pig, which is usually balanced out by my training. Unfortunately, I had nothing to do over the past month; my footwork feels sluggish, and my punches lost a lot of their snap. ****. Truly, though... running is probably the only exercise I'm allowed to do right now (aside from jump rope; the only difference is that I actually like ropework, but roadwork can eat a dick), and it's high time I got into some sort of regular roadwork.

    I refuse to go back to my regular gym until I can undo the damage from this month off.

    EDIT: For clarification, both my spleen and my liver were in a bad state, hence the no sparring. The amount of core work expected at the end of training at my proper gym would kill me, and as such I don't want to be a shamble of my former self when I train.

    Once your comfortable running a bit, I would urge varying up to more than just hitting the road and left-right-lefting it for a few miles. Hills, and speed work offer greater physical returns and help make running less mind numbing. Good luck with your training.

    Somehow reach level 11 in the BEEP test and not puke/faint/die immediately afterwards.

    For the record- I managed to get to 9.4 last Sunday before I retched back out half my breakfast.
