Sunday Ruck Fast and Furious

Well maybe not furious but it was definitely fast today. And, as usual, for no good reason.
Except maybe those extra helpings of polenta with feta cheese and bacon Tracy made me yesterday. I ate  a ton of that plus a lot of food in general; I was just hungry all day.
Sometimes those extra calories/carbs help and sometimes they don't
Today they did and I had plenty of fuel to go.
But just like yesterday when I put my hands on the bell for the first rep of the first set and knew it would be a strong day, when I stepped out of the house towards the park and my legs felt both loose and light I knew it would be a good ruck.

But I didn't think it would be this good.
I finished all twelve laps a good ten minutes ahead of schedule! Including ten paused squats for 30 seconds each as well.
Last lap was timed at 7:56 and it was not the fastest of the morning that's for sure.

Don't know where it's come from but I'm happy it's back!

50 lb Ruck
12 laps
1:50 min
10 sets of 30 sec paused squats

good stuff. Backing off on presses tomorrow to 85 lb ( 70% ) of my current best weight and re build the volume

til then Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there.

miss you Dad :)
