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).
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???
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…
Ehh.. maybe I’ll just go watch
