I my younger days I ran a lot. Now my knees are nothing but bone on bone. I still walk a lot, but no more running!
We used to do five miles every morning in my old Ranger unit. Five miles in thirty five minutes in combat boots, the old Ranger Run much faster than double time. Personal best was the 2 mile in !0:58 in combat boots. I think they let most all of the run in sneakers now. Hard on the feet and knees. Imagine that!
Seven-minute miles in combat boots?! My lungs hurt just reading that!
