HTL Training – Week 6

This is what I did during week 6 of my training for the 9/11 GORUCK HTL in Washington DC.

NOTE: I hit 100 Ruck Miles this week. It was a little slower in the training than I wanted, but it is a big milestone. I hope to now transition to alternating my T/R rucks with distance/weight days.

Wednesday, July 6

Notes: Lots of travel today to visit ailing grandparents.

Thursday, July 7
Ruck 2.35 Miles

Pace Unknown
Ruck weight – 55#


Notes: Took 5 kids on the ruck with me, so pace was slow.

Rest Day

Notes: No idea why I didn’t get up to ruck this morning. Vacation?

Notes: 9 hours in a car, driving. Mental toughness training. Followed by 2 hours of yard work.

Sunday, July 10

110 Push-ups

Notes: PT was at mile 6. Push-ups actually feel like they are starting to get better. I’ve increased from sets of 10 to sets of 11. Plan to increase reps by 1 each week. Ruck was a little slower due to legs getting destroyed yesterday.
