    Correct Answer
    C. Baseline fitness
    The first phase of a safe and effective obstacle race training program is baseline fitness. This phase focuses on building a foundation of overall fitness and strength before moving on to more specific race-related skills and training. It involves activities such as cardiovascular exercises, strength training, and flexibility exercises to improve overall endurance, strength, and mobility. By establishing a solid baseline fitness level, individuals can reduce the risk of injury and improve their performance in obstacle races.

    Correct Answer
    D. Times or social run
    To establish baseline cardiovascular conditioning, the best approach would be to focus on times or social runs. This means tracking the time it takes to complete a run or participating in group runs with others. This approach allows for consistent training and monitoring progress over time. Tempo runs, speed work, and interval training are more advanced techniques that are typically used to improve cardiovascular fitness once a baseline level has been established.
