I'll got the sandbag mile... it'll give me an excuse to finish building my sandbag.

Got halfway through making the last one, when my youngest son helped himself to my sand...

Q. Would piggybacking my husband count? He is more than my bodyweight (my 125/his 155). Too much of a cheat? We also learned that if we start from a fireman's carry, we can switch to what we like to refer to as "the barbell" (across both shoulders), and then the piggy back (all without putting him down). I think I can do 1/4 mile now (we're about to go outside and see).

Okie-dokie...1/4 mile with several rests.

Good progress.

Bodyweight sandbag mile in under 15:00?

It sounds easy compared to the Inman...

I was really hoping for sprints...sure we don't want to go for 100m dashes? When does the challenge start/end? I don't even have a sandbag....any ideas where to get one (I've got a job now, so I can buy fun stuff)?

Scott, I haven't made one yet, but I think a cheap alternative is to buy an old army duffel bag, then buy several 40# bags of sand or water purifier salt and put them in the duffel (still in their individual bags).

Of course, anyone who has actually made one could tell you better.

It was only a suggestion and I said 50#!!

This one will favor the skinny dudes, like Jeff, and makes it tough on us fatsos!
I'm looking at a 200lb sandbag for a mile? I'll start with 100lb and let you know. I'm not sure what I can get that would hold 200+lbs of sand.

I'll give it a go with 2 50lb bags of salt we have around for the softner and pool and let you know.

Otherwise, it's on! Bodyweight or no bodyweight!

how is a little person with short arms supposed to carry a 110lb sandbag? I need to find something very dense to fill the bag. Wet sand, maybe?

Chris Forbis 07-07-2005 11:54 AM

I was shocked at the what a small volume of sand weighs 50 pounds. Check out Home Depot. 50# bags of sand for cheap.

Is it official? BW sandbag mile in 15min or less. AKA "Rutman Mile"

To make the neighbors get real scared, make your sandbag look like a person. Maybe just a person rolled up in a carpet (shoes on one side, wig on the other).
