    Today’s is simple:

    4 Mile Ruck

    Post time and weight.

    Don’t go crazy with weight or speed.

    First time with my Tactical Research Belleville (TR103) Mini-Mil Boots with a drop of 2 mm.

    What is “drop”?

    “Drop” is referred to as the height differential between heel and mid-sole of a shoe. For years, traditional training shoes have been built with a 12-15mm heel-toe differential. The moderate minimalist shoes typically have a 4-10mm heel-toe drop and zero-drop shoes are generally those that fall in the 0-4mm range.

    I skipped today. It’s been raining like pouring water out of a boot, but I did trek about a mile through a swamp in waders chasing a duck this am.

    I was stricken with a case of He-bola or Man-fluenza yesterday. Needless to say, I’ll be making up Day 8 and 9 once I’m back on my feet. Not dropping out…just a set back.

    No days off, no excuses!!!

    Life has a way of testing absolute statements. ;-)

    Well played sir…does it count that I worked a full 8 hour shift in the ER while sick? Turned out to just be strep throat…keep the jabs coming, that’s what I love about this forum!

    …does it count that I worked…

    :unsure:

    Remember…

    I didn’t do “day 5” and my excuse?

    I unloaded a truck of 5,853 lbs of various cargo one box at a time.

    I still have to make up day five.

    Life happens! B-)

    Oops, I missed the start and have a lot of making up to do. Better late than never, hopefully.

    So, seeing this, I put the pack on this evening and did the 4 miles.

    43# pack, 4 miles in 47’59”.

    Wearing a new pair of the Goruck MACV-1 boots, great for this and even just for wearing around. Ankle boots that weigh just a tad more than running shoes, they’re good, if spendy.
