Is ruck pace of 14 min for 3 miles with 50 lbs good? I feel like it should be faster.
>>613176093 miles in 14 minutes? Damn nigga, are you an olympic rucker?
>>61317641thats my pace not my total time, fucking shit dude understand some context.
15min xmile is standard for most military cross country marching.
>>61317609if your running 3 miles in 14 mins with 50lbs on your back, consider going to the Olympics
>>61317609Depends on what you are trying to do. I would say no those are rookie numbers need 12 min miles AT BARE MINIMUM if trying to do anything army/military related.
>>61317900Distance is way more important for military purposes, better a 15 min mile for 10+ miles than just power walking with weight for 45 mins.
>>61317609Oh my God people here are fucking retarded. >>61317840>>61317900Which one of you are right? When I was in BCT it was just a steady walking pace, I'm 5'7" and my strides had no issue keeping up.
>>6131799015 for patrol pace.10 for a proper yomp.
>>61317990Standard pace for US is 7km/h or a little less than 4.5mph. 14 minute mile is a solid pace. Unless youre trying out for selection or something theres no reason to run a 10 minute mile with your ruck, thats a quick way to destroy your knees by 24. Learn to shuffle, quick short steps>long slow steps.
>>61317990The standard = subpar. You are suppoesed to exceed the standard not meet it. >>61317950What? ruck for 12 miles at a 12 min pace is exactly where any 11 bang bang should be. 15 min miles = hardly trying for anyone with a bit of experience.
>>61318128This. Stretching and rolling helps with the knees exploding though.
>>61318165Calm down Jocko, since when were you under the impression that OP is a crayon eater like you and me? I'm just trying to make sure he doesnt fuck his back and keeps that money from Big Physio.
SAS selection pace is 3/4KM an hour (depending on who you ask) but that’s as the crow flies and invariably over some intense elevation.
>Week 1 50lbs for 7km>Week 2 50lbs for 14km>Week 3 50lbs for 21km>Week 4 50lbs for 28km>Week 1 55lbs for 7km>repeat process until you’re carrying 110lbs Record your times and try and keep the same pace with increased weight. If you can’t keep it within 15 minutes drop the weight and restart the previous week.
Seems solid to me, but I'm navy and we only ruck during basic, during which that pace would have had you sitting pretty.
>>61317609I remember rucking 12km in 1:30 with 50lbs and full combat kit (tac vest, ballistic helmet, rifle) as a minimum requirement for military shit 10 years ago. Not sure what's changed since then but we would pretty easily knock that out on a 30C+ day so maybe try moving more there champ?
3 miles, 60lbs, 47:02 Im pretty far from where i want to be but its a start. Had to stop and retie my shoulder strap because the quick release kept going off, im sure that ate into the time a bit but sounds like an excuse.
