I'm down for a sandbag or two, I could do that one deployed... although I think those of us who do it in a flak and helmet should get extra credit.

Actually something that the CrossFitters who are deployed could easily take part in would be appropriate don't you think? I'm voting for sandbags.

Haven't got the Dan John DVD yet but I bet he has got some new ideas regarding carrying stuff.

This Challenge may just cause a shortage in his DVDs (which would be great for him).


Wasn't the Sandbag mile go a mile with a sandbag filled with your body weight?

How about a pamphlet of some kind in the back pocket?

It could be about something hardcore if you think it'll make it too easy.

A nod to Coach Rut would be nice. This is off his website.

The rules for the sandbag mile test are as follows:

Your sandbag must be at least 50% of your bodyweight. After you bring your time down to under 15 minutes start adding weight until the weight is equal to your bodyweight.

You must have a measured track or road course. (Road courses are more fun because the neighbors and motorists who drive by are temporarily distracted from their mind numbing commutes)

Pick-up the bag in any fashion short of using the neighbors BOBCAT.
The bag may be held in front, back, or shouldered but it must not touch the ground!

Any time the bag is dropped you are penalized thirty seconds in addition to the time you spend puking up a lung trying to figure out who you can page for a ride home.

Bodyweight sandbags anyone?

Coach Rutherford was the first (of only 2) to complete the last challenge.
The sandbag mile makes for an appropriate salute.

I like the idea of the sand bag carry!

I've been doing some sandbag work recently and it really kicks ***

Sure, sandbag carry. What's the weight and time goals?

(Oh, and Graham, you are harsh. Right on, bro.)

Rutmans mile looks like it is bodyweight for a mile under 15:00.
