Cool Air and Rucking


6 made it through the storm and could make it out of their neighborhood to post for a cool autumn morning in the gloom of TwinTeam.  It was especially gloomy in the parking lot since none of the lights were on.  The Q had no power and trees down in the neighborhood and asked YHC to take over.  YHC was happy to fill in since I was on standby yesterday but didn’t get the call.

3 ruckers headed out early for some hills with some extra weight.  The remaining 3 did the following:

Mosey to the bus loop for a warm up then slide over to the blacktop behind the school for 4 corners, prostitute style.

Corner 1 – 10 Diamond merkins, Run to Corner 2 – 20 Monkey Humpers, back to 1 for 10 Diamonds. Corner 3 – 30 Freddie Mercuries, Corner 4 – 40 Mountain Climbers.

Back to the bus loop for a triple check – Run the loop, Alternating shoulder taps, flutter kicks.

Pass to Tobit – Head to the high school where there are some lights on.  Since they are on, might as well use them.  Light pole 1 – 1 burpee.  1 burpee – Run to light pole 2 – 2 WWII back to 1 for 1 burpee.  1 burpee – 2 WWII – Light Pole 3 – 3 merkins – 2 WWI – 1 burpee.  Continue with 4 American Hammers.  5 Rosalitas.  6 Plank Jacks and finally 7 burpees.  Mosey back to the flag to meet the ruckers (Not Darius’s family).

Numbers/Names/COT – Marmaduke took us out with prayers for those affected by the storm here and throughout its path.

Marmaduke, Wilson and Honeymoon showed up early and hit the roads, including Twin Team with their ruck sacks on.  Honeymoon and Marmaduke are the instigators of this and Wilson is game for anything that doesn’t involve running.  Which is good since that seemed to be the theme of the beatdown today.  Reasonable to small exercise counts with lots of running in between.  Tobit continues to fly around at blazing speeds and Doozy is becoming a consistent SOJer.  He also learned that we really mean it when we say rain or shine.

I hope everyone made it out of the storm without too much damage or trouble.  If you need help, do not hesitate to reach out.  Michael brought plenty of rain, wind and damage but left behind some nice cool air.  Seems like that might be here to stay for at least a week or so.  It was nice to be able to breathe and not be sweating before we start.

Have a great day men, help a neighbor in need if you can.

  1. Well done fellas.

    It sure was dark and quiet driving to RAMM at 4 am this morning to meet Kubota and Gomer. Lots of water and debris on the route, but Damn that cool air and low humidity felt good.

  2. It was 60 degrees this morning. I bet Wilson had on three layers. Tomorrow at Dogpile it’s going to be 48 degrees. I expect no less than 4 layers.
