Ruck on.



After yesterday's 8 hour teaching/demo workshop ( which
went great) I was planning on doing my normal press workout but then Tracy wanted to ruck and I thought since I had to sacrifice a press workout or my sunday ruck I decided I would rather ruck it.

But I also through in 100 pushups after wards to keep the upper body engaged.
Just an hour with a lightened pack but it was hot as hell out and the perfect session

Ruck
47 lb ruck
6 laps
51 minutes ! ( PR)
last lap at 8:00

don't know how we went so fast, didn't seem so at the time but it felt great. I so love and appreciated being able to walk strong again. It's really a miracle for me and I'll never ever forget that.

Floor pushups
5 sets of 20

100 reps!

last set was hard in that the left shoulder started clunking but I really wanted to finish the five sets so I went through. Not that smart but it seems fine now.

Rif,

its great to see your progess actually.

Here is a thing that probably picks your interest: german seals, kampfschwimmer.

The movie is in german, but the exercises are for all. :-)

I'm sure the "company" you had with you made the time go really fast!! Whenever I hike with the hubs, the minutes just fly by!!
I'm starting to look at some backpacks lately.....would really like to do this during the winter, in the snow, on snowshoes!!
