A light session to rest up from the heavy day yesterday. Use today to get out and scout some terrain for your big Saturday ruck.

Hike for 60-90 minutes on variable terrain. No additional load.


30-60 minutes run/walk at zone 1

Zone 1 – Very easy with little to no impact on breathing. For many, this is simply walking.
Zone 2 – Easy, able to maintain a conversation without interruption
Zone 3 – Moderate but sustainable for 1-3 hours. 5-10 words without interruption
Zone 4 – Hard but not all out, sustainable for ~10-minutes. 2-3 words before interruption.
Zone 5 – 97% effort for the given duration.
