Written by Deanna Cioppa, editorial intern There’s nothing like the feeling of accomplishment that comes at the end of an extra-tough workout. Whether the challenge is physical, mental or both, stepping outside of your comfort zone is always worth it in the end. We asked our Twitter followers what the toughest workout or race was that they've ever completed. From hiking trails in New Zealand, to the latest DVD crazes, our readers have been through the mill. Take a look at some of these tough girls below.
@ElPesoNuestro: Milford Track, 33 miles of trails!
@MichMich0404: Without a doubt the Spartan Sprint at Tuxedo Park, NY. But I finished and that is what's important!
@TreeStand_Wife: Insanity! I loved it.
Now you tell us: What’s the toughest workout or race you’ve completed?
