Is running the Tough Guy in a wetsuit a good way to stay warm or a duff idea?
Hello again. 427 posts later after starting this thread.... I did Tough Guy, it was a doddle compared to wading through this lot.. For the record, it was a flippin FREEZING day, and I am glad to report that you lot who thought a wet-suit would be a duff idea were badly mistaken. I wore one (ok, I know that misses the point, but I am not very tough, more like a delicate spring flower than Spartacus), it was lovely and toasty warm and I felt pretty smug after all the enforced head-freezes that I didn't have hypothermia.So if you got it, wear it.THE END
I know this is an older thread but I wonder if you could tell me whay type of wetsuit you wore for the race?
I am not familiar with the TG race . I did the Tough Mudder in November at 42 degrees, it was 10 miles with water hazards about every 3/4 of a mile or so. Due to the number of runners, lines began to slow at the obstacles (40 of them) so time was spent waiting and turned what should have been a 1 1/2 hour or so run into 2 1/2 hours of exposure. In short it was damn cold. I suppose that that is the point though.I was considering the neoprene cap and gloves with the under standing that the glove will not likely survive the run.Thanks for the input.
