Dr. Stuart Weiss is the worldwide Medical Director for Tough Mudder. World's Toughest Mudder 2018 looks to be one of the coldest WTM's in several years. We talk about what every runner should do to prevent hypothermia and to avoid injury while cold and tired.
Dr. Weiss advises every runner: Listen to your body. Athletes are more likely to get injured when they get tired. Pay attention to your musculoskeletal fatigue, your fueling, and your hydration to give yourself the best chance of success on course.
Dr. Weiss works with Intelligent Crowd Solutions. If you have medical training and would be interested in helping elite athletes at events like World's Toughest Mudder go to icrowd.com. There you will receive more information about how to join their team.
