Hill ruck on standard route. Ran into a burly black bear on the hike, which was surprising to both of us.

El gain 705’
DISTANCE 2.6 miles
Weight 45 lbs

Also went paddle boarding for 1.5 hours. First time out the year, rock solid on the balance. Nice day!

Gravel ride, in hot & humid conditions. Hit the wall of bonk due to the heat on the last big climb. Sweated off 7 lbs, even with a hydration pack.

Quick ruck up the local ski slope before rain came in. Only logged the uphill portion, which was the steepest slope there. downhill was a longer and slower.

Total sweatfest as it is seriously hot and humid out. Still a little tweaked from the bonk yesterday, plus beer at the 4th celebration last night.

Rode the same route as two workouts ago. Started out feeling some leftover tiredness from the last ride, which was at my limit for heat.

Felt better today, slightly cooler out and I hydrated better. Saw a couple of other gravel riders out. Got passed by some guy and his wife out mtbiking, while clawing my way up a steep gravel stretch. That was a positive ego boost. Not!

Paved and gravel loop, 26 miles and 2600’ of elevation gain. About 2.5 hours. My Garmin ran out of juice mid-ride, so no digital record unfortunately.

Last night, walk to park, then 10 x hill sprints/10 push-ups. Walk back. Maybe 1.5 mile walk.

Rucked down to the park, then 10 laps up and down the hill with 10 push-ups per lap. Push-ups on a bit of a slope to keep the backpack from flopping over my head. 2 miles there and back.

Dropped below 220 post-workout, which was mostly due to sweat, but who cares. I was 235 3 months ago. Woot!
