Fort Meigs


Perrysburg, ruck

What the ruck is a ruck?  A hike with a weighted backpack (approx 30 lbs) while stopping along the brisk walk to do some invigorating exercise. Excellent 1st F (fitness) and 2nd F (fellowship). If an FNG (Friendly New Guy) is a bit timid to post for a workout the ruck is a great intro to the pax.

    A light rain fell, but with the warmer temps, the PAX were grateful for good weather. Digging into the Exicon, and reading up on some ruck training plans, YHC saw the opportunity to unleash some new things in this week’s Tuesday ruck.

    Started with a variation of Peter Parker’s around the Fort Meigs entrance circle. While half of the 8 PAX circled the curb, the other 4 continuously completed Ruck swings until the 6 finished.

    Embarked on an out and back ruck from Necropolis to the base of Maumee/Perrysburg bridge, rotating 2 sandbag coupons of 40 and 60 lbs and Old Glory. After reaching the halfway point (time-wise), we turned around and YHC suggested that all those without a coupon would carry packs, rather than wear them. Following that, PAX held packs overhead for approximately a quarter mile and then resumed normal rucking until completion of the week’s ruck. The PAX displayed great tenacity and determination in prep for the upcoming Growruck event.

    Thanks for the opportunity and privilege!
