GoRuck Update

So, just an update on the GoRuck stuff.

Last Saturday, my brother decided to put together a ruck out. As the photo up-top shows, four of us got together, strapped on our packs, and at just after 3pm we set out for our walk. (seriously, I have no idea why my mouth is all derk-a-der, but.. whatever)

This was my first outing with weight, and my knee wasn’t feeling all to swell, so I chose to go a bit lighter then the rest. I only used a 10lb weight in addition to the camel back.

However, 4.6 miles in 90+ degree weather, over a bridge (twice) with only 2 bowls of cereal and a few pretzels in you (oh, did I mention I am a diabetic?) with about 15 pounds on your back will wear you straight out. (Don’t let the smiles fool you… it was hot).

Over the bridge and through the woods, a rucking we will go!

By the time we were done, we have traversed 4.75 miles in just over an hour and 20 minutes. We ran a bit, but, as I said, my knee was hurting a bit and I have this burning sensation in my calf on the other leg… and I keep asking myself.. how did I get talked into this???

Anywho..

The weather has been a bit crazy, my schedule has been a bit nuts, and I haven’t really had a chance to do anything else this week as far as prepping for this upcoming weekends outing…
