Conditioning Ruck

Seems like upping my wednesday swing vo2 reps from 8 to 10 has had all kinds of positive effects. I think it's also spread over to my ruck conditioning. From thursdays 7:30 6th lap to today longer but still fast ruck it seems so.

Plus my foot doesn't hurt and that's key
Calves though are still  too tight and pumping up too fast. More SMR and stretching and I think the boots still need more breaking in. I think next pair I'm going back to the mid level, never had this much trouble with them and I can pick the odd pebbles out easier than this :)

50 lb ruck
1:55 min
11 iso squats
9th lap =7:41
12th lap = 7:02 !!

nice increase. So that's basically a 15.5 min mile or 4 MPH pace. I'll take it. Now, if this trends continues into the summer then the goal is 1.5 laps in 10:30 seconds with the big goal of the full mile in 15 minutes or 2.1 laps

that won't be easy but it's doable

BW 169.2
BF 11.7
W 57.2

160 press for 5x5 tomorrow! go get it!
