As mentioned previously on Day 6, obstacle course racing is an endurance sport. Unlike Ninja Warrior or similar short-form obstacle courses, OCR courses typically take an hour or more to complete. And you’re typically wet and dirty while doing it. For today’s advent challenge, get up and grind. Go for a run, hike, bike, swim… anything that elevates your heart rate and keeps it there for 50 minutes minimum. Tomorrow’s advent calendar challenge is a fun active-recovery challenge.
Obstacle Racers NZ Advent Calendar!
Each day in December, leading up to Christmas, we’ll reveal a daily challenge to get in mud shape. This advent calendar doesn’t involve chocolate (you can click here for some great chocolate recipes), but it does involve mud. We present the 2017 ORNZ Advent Calendar: 24 Days to Obstacle Racing.
