Since I will be traveling next week, I had to get in the 20 miler early. I packed 68 pounds with water. 63 without.
For some reason, I was having a pretty hard time around mile 12.5-16. Something happened and I was able to rally and get a second wind. My time was very bad though and I am concerned. In order to hit sub 15 min miles, I have to run...alot. I did not do that today and came in at 5:22:27. My splits just kept getting slower through the whole ruck. The weight felt really heavy and I just felt slow. I only stopped to pee 2 times and to refill my water once. Other than that, I was moving the entire time.
