The annual by the numbers post. Been a good year if somewhat transitional. A lot less running, more rucking. Lots of EMS and grappling.
Running,Hiking, Biking, Martial Arts
241 total miles mostly rucking
I stopped Krav Maga as I didn't have the time and I felt it wasn't what I needed to concentrate on. I have consistent attendance at BJJ however and am currently riding a 21 week attendance streak where I have attended at least one session during the week. I was awarded my Green Belt in December.
I also finished a Charity 10,000 flutter kick challenge and a 10,000 push up challenge for the Green Beret Foundation
Still not back to speed on the race front
Indoor Triathlon x 1
Go Ruck Light x 2
Trail Races x 2
Yup that's it but better than zero
