Archives: A RuckHill Duo Greet the Gloom

  • When: 20180322
  • QIC: Scully
  • The PAX: Hutch, Scully
  • A dynamic duo of Pax (kudos to Hutch for preventing a most unwanted Solo Q) greeted the gloom at RuckHill this morning and properly burdened, we began our assault on the inactivity seemingly embraced by those still in the fartsack.

    Air Squats 20. IC
    Merkins. 30. IC

    The Thang
    Rucked march to (and up) the first set of steps, across to (and down) the second steps, onward to the third stairway which was unexpectedly barricaded. Undeterred, we made our way to the summit directly up the somewhat slippery slope adjacent to the (needlessly) barricaded stairway, continued down the back “spine”, made a hard left, and completed our journey to the playground where the following tasks awaited:

    Fully rucked Elevens of Merkins and Pull-Ups with a moderately fast trot around the loop between each round. (Note that the difficulty in completing the required pull-ups while sporting his rucksack all but convinced YHC that completion of proper Murph while burdened with the required 20lb vest may not be in his future.)

    With the Elevens finally behind us, we retraced our steps almost exactly back to the flag. (YHC inadvertently missed the hard right up the “spine” and we had to backtrack a bit to get back on course). All told, we were able to add a mile and a half to the Rucking portion of YHC’s Quad P goals. With a few spare minutes until the final bell, we went ahead and knocked out 30 Air Squats to complete the beatdown.

    YHC presented the following verse where Jesus, through both his words and actions, is encouraging his disciples (and us all) to lead a life of service.

    John 13:13-17
    13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

    Keep giving it away men,
