Shoulders and back day in the gym before heading off to do a 5-mile rucksack march in under 75 minutes. Conduct the ruck over varied terrain. It will probably be a very early start here in the Northeast as we’re supposed to get hit with another snow storm. So be careful out there.
Remember to hydrate throughout the march. It is a good habit to get used to doing while rucking and a needed one for the time when you’re in the course. Mark your time down in your workout logbook.
