ZombieFit -- Be Physically Prepared for a Zombie Attack

Being able to outrun and kill zombies in a video game has nothing to do with surviving a real-life zombie attack. That's why the people behind ZombieFit have developed a parkour-based physical fitness program that they claim will prepare users to stay mobile and safe during an actual zombie attack:

The keys to surviving Z-day are simple: Be able to lift and throw heavy things, run fast and for long distances, and be able to navigate obstacles and urban environments in an efficient manner. By following the ZombieFit WODs (workout of the day) and practicing parkour, you will achieve increased fitness through the performance of functional movements at high intensity and find within yourself the internal discipline and mental fortitude necessary to become a traceur.

One drill that I've been doing lately is to wear my bug-out pack and carry a 25 pound bag of dog food in my arms on a 2 mile off-trail run though a local state park. The dog food represents the weight of my toddler, whom I would have to carry during an evacuation. Running on a treadmill isn't bad, but there are better, more realistic ways of exercising.

What do you do to prepare your body to survive a zombie attack?
