1. Work together or that slosh pipe is gonna suck… more.
Number of Pax: 9
Pax Names: Gut Check, Hooch, Daddy Daycare, Haas, Gambler, Snot Rocket, Trustfall, Squirle, Hasbro
Warm-O-Rama: 15 4-count Squats, rucks on
10 4-count Merkins, rucks on
The Thang: The Merkins with rucks on got the midwife noises going indicating we were sufficiently warmed up.
9 Pax were split into two groups.
While one group is under the stick ball slosh pipe (left over from Sixes Wild) the other group will carry their rucks and a ruck from the other group up the stairs to the top of the amphitheater, across the top and back down the stairs. While they're busy doing that, the group under the pipe does:
1. Alternating shoulder presses until the ruck group gets back. Each group did this twice.
2. Flutter kicks holding the pipe overhead until the ruck group gets back. Each group did this twice.
About this time the "I thought we were rucking" whining began and since we'd burned a half-hour at this point, I decided to show the guys a little mercy so we put the pole back in the truck, grabbed a sandbag and hit the streets.
We left the park headed West, picking up the trail to Woofstock and then back via Dupree Rd while alternating the flag and bag every 6-7 minutes.
I hadn't rucked with a few of these guys so we took turns telling "interesting" stories about ourselves. YHC thinks Squirtle has the most potential for the best interesting story (almost getting a bus full of Boy Scouts shot by the Canadian Border Patrol). He's still young so with some time and embellishment I suspect this story will only get better with age.
According to the watch that was 2.99mi covered with 621 calories burned.
COT: Prayers for Exile's Mom; Lucky Charms and his family; Members of our community that might attend the event in the park today -- that they might be motivated to do the hard thing and improve themselves via F3/FiA or by any other means.
Naked Man Moleskin: No naked men or moles were harmed during this ruck.
