Thursday Ruck in the rain
Plus I love to do outside endurance stuff in light rain, keeps me cooled off and the engine from overheating
Tracy is back from a week long flu so we took it extra easy today and just did five laps. Fast still but one less.
Ruck weight was 43 lbs
Time : 50 minutes
The above mountain is Mt Whitney, the highest mountain ( 14,550 ft) in the lower 48 states. It's a pretty much straight walk up to the summitt I am told.No technical climbing at all. Since GoRuck doesn't seem to want to schedule the Ft Bragg Challenge any time soon I am changing my goal towards hiking this bad boy some time in the near future.
It's 11 miles up and then 11 miles down. A two day hike for me I believe. There are many ways I could challenge myself for this ruck, hell, it's called road marching- I could just measure out 12 miles, load the pack up and walk it :)
And I just might do that.
But the idea of an adventure to climb a tall mountain for my 60th birthday challenge seems even cooler
We'll see what transpires.
For me, the key is to have a big goal like this in mind, it's what motivates me on the day to day stuff that i do.
Whether I actually achieve it or not is secondary to the idea of it. That's what keeps me motivated and that's what keeps me consistent
Which is the whole ballgame :)
