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.
Tax Day Ruck aka “40# never looked so good!”
PAX: Tupac, Shakira, Jennay, Woodstock, Venom, Stark, Casper, Buttermaker & Flo (Q)
Mission & Principles
Focused on quick rotation while alternating 60 and 40 pound coupons. First half of ruck using 90 second rotations then took a mid point break switching to 2 minute rotations. Coupons consisted of 60# (1 sandbag & 3 pairs of 30# dumbbells) and 40# (1 sandbag & 3 sand tubes) loads. Hence, 40# coupons were a “break” from the 60# coupons.
Completed just under 3 miles. (Shout out to Woodstock having an extra ruck as the Q somehow forgot to pack his ruck into his vehicle when loading in the coupons last night…)
Six was Venom.
Finished with NOR and COT.
Overall a challenging, but satisfying, morning with the PAX exhibiting great teamwork!
