After a swim day, it is back to a heavy day of UBRR preparation with pushups, sit-ups, crunches, and a longer ruck march. Keep a PT prep log of your times on your runs and rucks and you should be noticing a decrease in the times as we forge ahead.
Don’t forget your stretching and this is a great time to begin breaking in a second pair of boots. If anything happens to your best pair or they get wet when in Selection, (and they will), having a good broken in second pair is very important.
