I signed up for the Kokoro taking place in June. Just got off a 6 month deployment. Did not get a chance to run much. I feel fairly confident in the majority of my physical fitness areas with the exception of my running. With a month to go, I was planning on rucking twice a week and conducting a speed workout on the track on two separate days from my ruck runs. What metrics should I try and train to? I know the minimums required for Kokoro, but no one was ever given a SEAL slot by shooting for minimums. Should I be doing different or other training to better prepare for the runs?
I’m training for Kokoro this October, I’d like to know if one should keep their weighted runs to any particular distance like 2-3 miles? I’ve a 70.3 Iron Man this July and then a Tough Mudder in September to help prep for KoKoro. Besides the endurance training lately I do the SealFit Basic OpWOD’s Or Masters (I do scale some of the weight) and some SOF WODs or Grinder PT. I know I have to ruck more and will but I still feel like I may be missing out on some important training specific for Kokoro! Am I training enough? Thanks for any input!
One thing Coach Divine has talked about at length is the mental aspect of Kokoro Camp. Eventually, our bodies give out, what carries us through Kokoro and many other tough situations in life is the mental aspect. In this case, your “Why”, why are you doing Kokoro Camp. Make that strong and you will go right through it.
