    I had to search what a seal jack was. I found two main examples, however, I think this video shows the correct one. Actually, it shows the regular jumping jack and the seal jack.

    My time for 1.6 km was 11 min 30 sec. Friggen’ slow but at least I did it. My goal time is 10 min.

    You really should be consistent with how you measure distances, don’t keep switching between miles and kilometers/meters. It makes it seem like you are disorganised

      Hi Kyle, thanks for the comment. With races in the UK, Canada, and the USA, we must change from miles to KM and vice versa to fit that countries nomenclature. Keep it up Spartan!
