    Helen, you are tough. And kudos to you for completing this all alone. I have never done anything like this and not sure if I could. Swimming in the dark – not something I think I would enjoy.

    Thanks. I appreciate all your comments. The whole team spirit of the event made it very enjoyable so whilst you may not be thinking "ooh swimming in ice water sounds fun", the sense of achievement after makes it so worth it.

    It's definitely a team event and you can do it if you put your mind to it. On YouTube there are videos of people doing all the obstacles with missing limbs and a few weeks ago a lady did it in a wheelchair. Truly inspirational!

      I will check out the Youtube videos. Thanks.
      And maybe I might also gather some courage and do this someday.

      It was the most grueling thing I've ever, ever done and can't wait to do it again. You should look into it. There are loads of similar ones too like Warrior Adrenaline Race and Mud Runner.

    I only found out about Tough Mudder a few months ago and I'd love to do it! I'm not a fan of running but i like the idea of the obstacles. However that ice pool sounds awful, i hate being underwater, argh!! I think I'd need to do it a team for the moral support, well done you! xx

      There are loads of similar events. Zest magazine do an annual 'zest girls bog adventure' a nice obstacle race that's only a few miles and not quite as extreme but still a fun team event.

    WOAH. This is incredible! I'd heard of Tough Mudder but was never really sure what it entailed.
    What an achievement, congratulations!!!

      There are very few feelings better than a bubble bath after a lot of exercise!
