Skill transfere - 
Running through water is perfect resistance and the skill and strength required will keep you in good form on the day when moving through mud, water etc. Double knee jumps and sit ups are a combination of strength and endurance activities and use muscle groups that will be needed on the day for any jumping, climbing and picking your self off the floor. Swimming will be involved so learn how to swim, squats for leg strength and endurance and burpees for high intensity efforts. Finally run because at the end of this very draining event you will have to find a way to keep moving adn ticking the legs over. This is a specific training day for the big event. every day has a purpose and i will try to inform you of the results you will get from participating in each day.
