Sunday morning 12-mile Rucksack march. Do a quick warmup of pushups and sit-ups before heading out. Head out over varied terrain and try to go as fast as you can without running.

Stretch well both before and after the event. Remember to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated out there. Even with the cooler fall weather, and it has been cool the last few mornings…drink plenty of water and don’t be a heat injury.

Training:

Warm up

2 x 20 Pushups

2 x 20 Sit-ups

12-mile Rucksack march over varied terrain with a 45-pound minimum. Remember the standard is 3 hours…. I’m getting a head start and hit the trail around 4-ish to do it in the coolest part of the day.

Stretch well after completion
