....so as I'm using it someone came up to me and said "So you finally filled up one of the sandbags?'' I was like "Huh?". seems my gym has 3 sandbags for two years but no one decided to fill them so they've just been sitting there collecting dust Roll Eyes

They probably couldn't find any exercise sand.

The run I'm doing I think we have to carry a log on our shoulders and walk through mud.

What sort of boots are you using?


No boots, training sneeks by Reebock.

My ankles are like soft spaghetti these days, I'd snap them off if I went over them in trainers now. Have you done a lot of them?


Only short 5k ones before...this one is  between 6-8 miles and 25 obstacles.

Will be fun. I'm helping out for the day staffing one of these events next month. You should have a look at some lightweight sneeker type boots for longer events that will be through mud and uneven terrain...very easy to fuck your ankles when you're carrying weight. Magnums or Adidas GSG9's are some good, really lightweight boots that will give a bit of support.


Thanks will look into it.

You don't need boots for your event.  I did the 13 mile TMs in reebok zigtech and atv19s.  People do them in minimalist shoes.   Goruck is where you need to pay special attention to footwear.
