    Never liked carrying water ... theres fluid dynamics at play, the water moves within itself causing a lateral pull as your hips rotate your back left and right which slightly off balances you on the run on each side and can tire you out. dumbbell plates in the backpack, taped together and plenty of padding around them, backpack cinched up as tightly as i can get it and water bottle or 2 to consume - separate from the weight obviously - added in the lid or the vest.

    "No, sir. He's a sergeant, and they don't deserve no respect at all, sir. I should know. They're cunning and artful, if they're any good. I wouldn't mind if he was an officer, sir. But sergeants are clever."

    Half fill a 2L plastic bottle with water, then fill the bottle with play sand. Tamp it every so often so the sand settles. It weighs about 5k from memory (but itís about 25 years sunce I did it!). I also filled square 5L bottles. Basically, you can do it to any shape/size you want, and if the bottle is full, itís solid.

    Buy 1.5kg bags of Lidl flour (20p-ish UK money).

    Wrap them in sniper tape.

    Will last for ages...I keep a day sack with 15kgs of Lidls finest in it for practice tabbing.

    Don't use the self-raising though.

    Wouldnít the self-raising be better for going up hills?

    Anyone here Galway based?
    I knew a simple soldier boy.....
    Who grinned at life in empty joy,
    Slept soundly through the lonesome dark,
    And whistled early with the lark.

    In winter trenches, cowed and glum,
    With crumps and lice and lack of rum,
    He put a bullet through his brain.
    And no one spoke of him again.

    You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
    Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
    Sneak home and pray you'll never know
    The hell where youth and laughter go.
