It was an interesting start to the workout. I had all of my potted plants, rucks and sandbags setup.
I learned Wednesday is trash pickup day. Around 5:30am, the trash truck rolled from the football field toward the scout trailer where I had everything setup.
After a disclaimer (wish you could have seen the size of my eyes), we moseyed toward the potted plants. We didn’t make it in time but luckily the crisis was averted. Not even a potted plant would survive a trash truck rolling over them.
Here is who made it out to the workout: Lambeau (survived Disney while honing his land navigation for his upcoming 1/22/22 ruck), FitBit (R) (whose home AO is the Patriot), WILDflower (came back after a few weeks including a vacation), Asian Zing (survived the coldest hockey game Monday night record -9 degrees and won a fantasy football championship [we know Pelican its wasn’t the F3 league!]), Brown Water (who continued his tour of NBA games over break), Pelican (who is returning from wrist surgery) and Meter Maid (who continued his 2022 Potted Plant Tour with his third consecutive Q).
We did a quick mosey around the islands before circling up for COP. We did Mountain Climbers IC, Toy Soldiers IC, Grass Grabbers IC, Kendra Newmans (Arm Circles), and Michael Phelps OYO.
The exercises were ruck shoulder shrugs, ruck merkins, sandbag bent over rows, stein holds, bent over flys, perpetual motion, weighted squat to overhead press, bench press, halos and American hammers) that were performed to failure. Then a lap around the islands and moving to another station. All I all I had over 2 miles running.
We took the weight back toward my vehicle and circled up. We did COR and NOR. For announcements, we need help for Dare to Care on Saturday (see Jitterbug) and the next monthly ruck is 1/22/22 (see Lambeau or Focker). There will be a small fee for the patches. We did intentions and closed out with a prayer.
Always humbled to lead,
