Sunday Ruck : Fast.
Interesting day. Yesterday was spend in pain trying to unlock my elbow. Did a lot of bodywork and movement therapy and ended up sleeping well last night and waking feeling 50% better.
Didn't expect much from the ruck but it went very well, although it took longer than usual to warmup.
Usually by lap 5 I'm at close to best speed for the day and try to hang on. Today started slowly but no slow and kept getting faster. It was lap 8 that usually signals a downturn but today it was the opposite and speed picked up.
Last lap was 7:48 which was not that much faster than the rest. Surprising. Legs felt loose and fast and the pack light
10 sets of 30 second iso squats were strong'
50 lb ruck
10 iso squats
Didn't hurt at all that it was relatively cool with a nice breeze. Always makes me faster.
We'll see what tomorrow brings with the press. that motion with a stick doesn't light up the triceps or elbow at all so who knows
