Running and walking on paintball terrain

Running and walking on paintball terrain
I was wondering if i am the only one worn out after a day of paintball on rough terrain. I just started running/jogging but I am worn out after 4 hours. And i don't even run that much ....

Also the waist pouch, marker and the mask are contributing factors.
bonds feedback:

Shaken......but not stirred. Licenced to paint.

I can wear myself out pretty easily. You pretty much have to pace yourself, no matter what level you are at. Even if you can run everywhere while others walk, you end up burning what you got. The heat will get you around here, since sweating doesn't do much for you anyway (hydrate all you want). Packs get to your back and feet eventually.

Even when you walk out and get shot to turn around at the big game hospital, you're working more at just playing poorly. Some times I try to take a break at base security, as long as the air is stirring around. Meal breaks, water breaks, take and hold missions, slow stalk through the back of the field, forward stake-outs are places to slow down while you play. I now stay out of squatty bunker positions just because they impact my endurance and short term movement.

I also tend to work lighter as the day goes on, switching to lighter ammo load setups and moving from electros to light mechs and pumps. I used to play harder, but I don't work out the same and try to play a more friendly game.

lol.... I'm 61, 245-pounds, and definitely out of shape. I go to a couple of big games a year, and play hopper ball.

After a hopper of paint, and covering a lot of territory, I'm ready for a break. Refill the hopper, and back on the field...

If you can't take the heat, then get out from under the bus!
