This wod came to be quite natural to me. I have to anyhow regularly walk our dog every morning for about an hour, so it was really easy to just pack the backpak and start walking. In the beginning.
I did lose the feeling on my left arm at some point, due to that the strap pressed my shoulder nerve. I managed to adjust the straps as needed and slipped arm being numb all the time. And in the end I started to get tired on my lower back. Otherwise it was actually completely ok, even though I didn’t finalize the WOD with death by burpees as I did plan in the beginning of the walk. Most likely I’ll do that in the evening. well, that, or 10 min AMRAP of the Burpees.
The dog carried an object the whole way, too, and is now sleeping.

At some point I started thinking about the SAS special forces training. If I got it right, they walk (or run) 40 Km with 80 Kg equipment. With my speed it would take 8 hours. In case I wouldn’t stop too often. So my one hour 22,5 Kg workout started to feel kind of petty and a small thing to do 😀
