Sunday morning Rucksack march. Do a quick warmup of pushups and sit-ups before heading out for a 12-miler. 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. After we had a teaser of a couple of almost summer-like days, winter has returned, and it is cold and damp out there.

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…. Try to get a head start and hit the trail around 4-ish to do it in the coolest part of the day.

Stretch well after completion
