There are a few AO’s town that you know you have to bring a little extra heat, otherwise they’ll probably run you off. There are other sites that you can come with a little less and you will still be told “great Q” when you know it was fairly average. Vets, like the Garden, is definitely one of the former. I knew that if I didn’t put something together that would cause a little discomfort, I may not be welcomed back. I also knew that I was probably going to pay for the challenge I was about to issue.
In the PB, I encouraged the PAX to leave the coupons at home but also suggested they ruck up if they wanted a little extra sauce. In the spirit of don’t Q it if you can’t do it, I wore my ruck.
Of the 13 PAX in attendance, 4 wore rucks. I still haven’t decided if that was a good idea.
PAX in attendance:
Number Two (R)
At 0530, we circled up and got our heartrate up and legs moving. After that we took off for a short mosey over to the parking lot near the church.
In the parking lot we circled up for a Tabata style routine was was specifically aimed at smoking the legs.

The series of Monkey Humper, J Lo, Pickle Pounder, Lounge Act and Jane Fonda was a crowd pleaser. Mumblechatter was fairly solid through the workout, but it picked up exponentially with this lineup. Apparently Emma thought the pickle pounders were hilarious or she thought we were dying, she was very vocal and active during them.
At 0614 we took off back to the memorial and circled up for COR, NOR, Announcements (Upcoming March ruck, don’t miss this one and Dare to Care) and Intentions.
After I got home and made breakfast, my legs almost gave out on me as I walked down to the basement. The ruck was the icing on the cake and took everything I had out of my legs. I’ll be using this ridiculous line up again.
Thanks for the opportunity to lead.
Until Next Time,
