Pain

An unpleasant sensation…  

Occurring in varying degrees of severity…  

As a consequence of…

injury…

disease…

or emotional distress.

The temperature is dropping and that means so will the GORUCK event prices…  $20-25 off in most cases if you’re interested in a Challenge or Light.  Definitely a good deal.  Go sign up!

brass-fire-smoke said: I am starting to prepare for my first GoRuck challenge it will be mid 2015 and I have never rucked before can you give me any tips on "rucking" style and how to progress maybe regarding rucking weight and cadence?

First thing’s first.  DO NOT run with your ruck.  Outside of events, at most do a quick shuffle, but stick to walking with a purpose.  

Start with 15-20lbs and a couple of miles, maybe 5 or so.  From there increase either weight or distance each week, but only 10-20% at a time so add a brick or a couple of miles, rinse, repeat.

Another thing to take note while you’re building up is clothing and gear choices.  Find what works and what doesn’t.  Don’t take unnecessary crap with you, just what’s on the gear list, snacks, and water.  Avoid cotton, stick to wool.

GORUCK has a 6 week training plan that will also help.  If you’ve got more questions, let me know.  Good luck!

No ID needed, $6 for a new key based solely on a picture.  How convenient!  Definitely not a security risk at all…
