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.
Ruck like Lightning
QIC – Stark
PAX – Nimbus, Coal, Flo, NyQuil, Mile High, Geppetto, TuPac, Casper, Ponzi, Bambi (runners – Woodstock, Buttermaker, Jennay, Chanel)
In honor of our favorite little thunder cloud, Nimbus, we celebrated his first ruck and his 42nd birthday throughout the morning. YHC brought his new deck of F3 playing cards for their virgin journey around the Necropolis. The distance covered was not extensive, but their were amble opportunities for Ruck PT throughout. YHC tasked Geppetto to set a timer for 420 seconds in honor of Nimbus’s 42nd bday. At the culmination of each timer round we stopped and did 42 reps of a workout pulled by Nimbus from the F3 deck. Our route took us through the Necropolis (Fort Meigs Cemetery) and behind Fort Meigs to give Nimbus a taste of our favorite rucking paths in the Burg. During our expedition we were hit with the following PT:
(42 reps each, with packs)
– Plank Hold (Pax counted around circle until we reached 42. Hate and Respect to Flo and other for “forgetting” their numbers and making the count last over 2 minutes in plank with our rucks)
– Knerkins – particularly tough to get 42 reps. YHC was down on his knees quickly.
– Back in Parking Lot with a Welcome Home party. American Hammers and 4 lengths of the parking lot, approx 200 yards in a ruck sprint) Props to Nyquil for running it like he had a pillow on his back.
NOR, COR, COT – Prayers for our brothers or their families fighting physical or emotional sicknesses, Thanksgiving travels, and the strength to keep positing this winter.
Always and honor. Always a Pleasure.
