Tough Mudder Australia 2012 - Fitness challenge or mud apocalypse?

Half of my weekend consisted of plodding through cow paddocks and muddy fields as I watched an event that was the first of its kind in Australia, but quite popular around the world apparently.

Tough Mudder Australia was held in Phillip Island, just outside Melbourne and my husband was one of the enthusiastic hordes that couldn't wait to stretch on some lycra and dive head first into a mud pit.

As a spectator sport it ranks right up there in terms of excitement and the competitors also seemed like they were relatively happy, what with the mud, ice water, electroshock obstacles and other random physical feats they had to perform in order to earn a can of beer.

And if you think this looks fun in photos, wait till you check out my videos!
