Sunday Ruck. PR and new standard

Strong walk today. Pack weight the same as last time, 32.5 lbs.  Twelve laps in 2 hours and 5 minutes. 12 sets of squats held for 30-45 seconds at the end of each lap. This was not a problem. 5 minutes to and from the park. So this is the new standard, 6 laps per hour. Will maintain pack weight for another 3-4 walks then up it to 35 lbs.
Feet felt the best ever and legs very very solid. Coming along nicely.

Mark-
Just curious....when you say "laps" while describing your ruck walks, what is the terrain like that you're walking on? Is it a track, or flat pathways, roads, trails, woods, sidewalks, or what? Just curious-
