    My pinnacle was an HTL and now that its done whats left to do is team assessment and selection. Not a huge fan of either so off to the pasture i go.

    I hope go earn the GORUCK patch eventually. I've got the spartan Trifecta for the last few years and I am signed up for the Spartan Ultra in the fall. IF the Ultra goes well. I'll give the GORUCK a shot.

    Got a buddy that did spartans and went with me on a Goruck. Swore hed never do it again. Two different beasts. If you want next level then Goruck is your thing.

    You can always do a Light before committing to a Tough.

    I did a Light and that was enough to convince I had a ways to go before I could do a Tough.

    I am doing the Spartan Ultra in the fall. If that doesn't kill me, I'll consider the GORUCK light.

    As it turns out....if you don't seriously train for an HTL then you probably don't need to do one. I did a TL back to back last weekend and while I didn't do terrible at it I felt that an HTL is still a little out of my league. I'm putting it off, luckily I can get an event voucher, until I can get serious about a training program. Anybody used the Heavy Drop Training? Wondering if it's worth the price tag.

    An HTL is not an easy undertaking. Respect the bolts.

    Ever done a heavy? The pt test is a brute sometimes.

    Never used a training program. Went to a cross training gym 3-4 times a week and went all in as well as rucked heavy for long distances.

    No I haven't. I was planning to knock it out all at once so I wouldn't mentally put off doing an HTL but I may try doing a Heavy first. They have changed up the PT requirements and they do the Robbie Miller WOD now for the PT test and I know I can't do ring pullups. I'll work on a plan and see where I'm at in a few months.

    Keep pushing hard. Avoid injury. Get your bolts. Its doable but you will sacrifice for it.

    If you guys are feeling froggy and already have an HCL under your belt and want even MORE of a challenge, I suggest the CPA exam.
