I can not believe that this day has come. We are a week out from Goruck Selection and I am happy to say that I am as ready as I can get physically. My recent fitness test showed these results:
2 min pushups- 82
2 min situps- 80
5 mile run- 37:22
12 mile ruck with 45 lbs- 2:31:00
The minimum requirements are:
This last fitness test was a confidence builder. I have improved on everything with situps being the most improvement.
Mentally, I am still preparing. I personally feel like being nervous about this thing is a very good thing. If that is the case, then I am in a really good place...I am pretty damn nervous.
Packing is still an issue and I am packing and repacking over and over again; each time getting rid of several items making the rig smaller and more compact.
I will keep writing on the blog until the event and certainly give a report on how it went
