Sunday morning 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 for 6 miles without running.

Stretch well both before and after the event. Remember to still push water during the march. Although the cooler weather is upon us now, the need for water doesn’t go away.

Warm up

1 x 20 Pushups

1 x 20 Crunches

6-mile Rucksack march over varied terrain with a 45-pound minimum. 90 minutes maximum. Exceed the standard without running and you’ll be in good shape.

Stretch well after completion
