Run #1

Worman's Mill
Today's workout was:
45 min run / 45 min ruck
30 min run / 30 min ruck
20 min run / 20 min ruck
My pack was ~37 pounds

Stayed in the neighborhood to do this to make transitions easier and it rained a lot last night then changed over to snow just before daylight and there was about an inch of slush in the roads. Temps were in the mid 30s with no wind so it wasn't that cold just felt wet.

It was amazing how easy it was to run after taking the pack off.
The three run segments were:
45:51 4.56 miles 10:03 pace
30:56 3.18 miles 9:43 pace
23:49 2.44 miles 9:45 pace (this was a bit over the 20 min to ensure I had 10 miles in)

Run #2
  • 1h 39m 35s
  • 5.62 miles
  • 17m 43s /Mi

Worman's Mill

See above description of the day's workout schedule. The pack felt heavy today. Do-able for this distance but 26.2 miles is going to be a major challenge.

The three ruck segments were
48:13 2.72miles 17:44 pace
30:15 1.72miles 17:35 pace
21:03 1.18miles 17:48 pace

Couldn't sleep. Up at 2:45 Coffee, Cliff bar, Sudoku, then out for a run. Wanted to do 10 but I just wasn't feeling it too much and cut it short.

Run #2
  • 1h 11m 07s
  • 4.00 miles
  • 17m 46s /Mi

Worman's Mill
Had a 90 minute massage at 3:30, Got home a few minutes after 5. It was supposed to start snowing at 6. Decided to heft up the pack and go for a ruck around the hood. The pack is loaded at 36.5 The extra 6.5-7 pounds from what I had in Florida makes a huge difference. I am very pleased with my pace (though I was walking pretty fast). It did start to snow big wet flakes. I felt like my whole body was floating when I got done and took the pack off. If this is what 4 miles around the neighborhood feels like, I can't imaging 26 miles in the desert.

Had the gym bag all packed but when I got up this morning it was above freezing. Didn't think that ice would be a problem so I headed outside. It was nice to be out.

It was still warm tonight so once again I got to run outside. Legs were really stiff tonight so I stopped at 4 knowing that gave me a 10 mile day.

This was an actual BEACH RUN and it was AWESOME!
I even went in the ocean for a few minutes when I got done. I could so do this every day. Retirement cannot get here soon enough. 4 more years.
