Sunday Ruck Lap speed pr
It's so good to feel good.
Tracy's schedule changed so I will be rucking by myself for the near future. As much as I enjoy her company I also enjoy doing cardio stuff like this by myself. Always have. I can completely go at my own pace and get lost in my thoughts.
Legs felt loose right from the start, always good sign. I started off slow because I have to but then it seemed my pace was picking up by itself. It seems to work best this way, when my legs are ready to go fast they do. when I push it they just get tight and slow.
Took my heart rate too per lap and it was about 130 the entire time except for after the last lap when it went to 140. That's a good pace for 2 hours straight.
50 lb Ruck
10 isometric squat holds
5th lap 8:12
9th lap 7:56
12th lap 7:32!! PR
that is the fastest yet, breaking 7:34. Boy that came out of nowhere, too. I've felt slower than ever of late.Pack felt light too. I adjusted the carry position a bit, letting it hang lower than normal and it seems to help keep my center of mass lower and my torso more upright
Perfect weather too, warm but with a cool breeze and the clean crisp morning air. Love it
Military press tomorrow for 115 for 6 sets of 6. Will bump the volume a bit here before my next assault on 135 :)
Also two kettlebell front squats will sub for belt squats. I think I'm ready for these again.
