6 mile heavy ruck

Clay, Michael and I left the garage at 5 am for a 6 mile time trial with a 60 pound ruck.  The goal was to be under 1:30:00. 

Yesterday, I drove the course and thought I had it pretty accurate at a 3 mile turnaround point, but today, the phone app I was using measured the distance at 6.53.  Michael, using a different one, got 6.25.  Either way, it was a little long.

We ran alot more today and I made sure to run all of the downhill portions.  Michael left me and finished his 6 in 1:14:00 and the full run in 1:18:00.  I finished 6 in 1:17:00 and the full run in 1:24:00.  Clay was a bit slower, but still came in under the time cap.

I felt good to know that I can make that time hack if necessarry with a 60 pound pack.
