1 minute Warning and full disclaimer

We continue to train and train hard as the Charlotte 50 mile Star Course is a little more than a week away. 8 dudes getting pumped. Be nice if all 8 could actually train together 1 morning, but…..

Anyhow, with many sore calves from Bling’s #ElevationMonday at Doug Shaw stadium, we still had to get after it today. Of course, #WaveRucker is open to all ruckers (and even non ruckers looking for something AWESOME). But for the 8 training for the Star Course, today was, as Bling said, Mandatory! So of course, we only had 6. And bets about Weedeater being a no show were paid off. Also, a minimum 45 lb ruck was required. I am certain all complied but Bling.

Stealing a page from last week’s Valvano led beatdown and adding a little twist:

Rucked again to Crown Reef. Up the ramp and to the stairwell….and……closed for wet paint. To the next stairwell. All clear.

Go up. All 11 flights. At your own pace. At top, rest no more than 30 seconds. Come down. Rest no more than 30 seconds. Up to top again. Back down. Quick rest. Up to level 5 but two steps at a time!!! And back down. Really work those quads. Nice work!!!

Keep going out and down the ramp and across to the convention center thing. Rucks off. 3 minutes of stretching cause we are old and we carry a lot of weight a lot of time. Line up. 30-35% run up the ramp around and down and turn it up to 50-55% for 2nd lap. No sprinting hard this close to an event – no need to even think about an injury. Quick rest. Turn around, run uphill backwards turn around on straightaway and finish moseying. Rucks on – back to start point.

Total 5.25 miles give or take. The stairs mess up the GPS
