Give it 10-20 years, and when you end up seeing the PT about your pains, guess what they'll prescribe? Yeah...and it'll probably work, too. It seems like a lot of Army stupidity, but it's actually based on some pretty good research. Wish we'd done more preventative stuff like that when I first got started.

When do you fly?

They did a lot for my soldiers when I made them do it. Lots less injuries. BTW, the only way to do prt properly is to have an hour and a half for PT. Also a relatively warm place to warm up and cool down.

I bring a lot of the building workouts into my own with a slight twist, helps me stay healthy and strong

I believe you both! PRT is pretty awesome for my out of shape Soldiers (Half of my Battery). I just find trouble making it difficult since I'm the only person who doesn't find it difficult. My PRT is tailored to the Soldiers not to me though so I work out on my own. (Soccer is good Interval Training!)

I'll be updating my Splits later this evening and look out! I already made my first Orienteering Map!

Hard workouts are for your time. Group PT is for getting the group to a baseline of fitness as well as comrade and espirit de corps.

How can I post my map on attack point? Any ideas? I have two maps. One of my home that I created a Score-O and one that was just a fun loop around my neighborhood.

That is a map of my home area. The following is a google maps of the location.

Still trying to figure out how to best map the clues. But I'll be posting more maps when I get the time.,+Chat...

Oh, wow - real potential. Worth looking at some of the crazy European city sprint maps...lots of areas that are not roads are olive green, so there are sections of navigating across crazy road mazes. You could use the buildings at the bottom of the map, the marina area, and maybe some interesting walls along the waterfront...

So once you get mapped, we can all design courses for you!
