A Pax of 4 greeted the new day/new work week for Ruck It. Several Pax were mildly disappointed that Purdy Mouth (and his tights) were not in attendance. Side note – Go see “I Hate Hamlet” at the New Bern Civic Theater and you will know about what YHC is referring. Greeting, Mission Statement and Disclaimer given, and we began, with YHC providing the description of what to expect as we rucked.
One Pax would begin by carrying the 40 lb. sandbag, in addition to his 30 lb. ruck. After approx. 5 minutes, a signal was given upon which the Pax with the sandbag would stop and perform 10 sandbag cleans, while the remaining Pax would lunge walk ahead. After the 10 ruck cleans, that Pax would give a signal for the remaining Pax to resume rucking. The Sandbagging Pax would then have to close the gap in order to surrender the sandbag to the next Pax, who would then ruck for a period of time before doing his cleans. Repeat until all Pax have performed their set of cleans and have caught up with the Pax.
One Pax would again carry the sandbag until the signal. At the signal, a 2nd Pax would stay behind and perform squats while the first Pax again performed 10 sandbag cleans. The remaining Pax would continue rucking, thereby creating a longer distance between the two pods. Pax A and B would then, as a team, share the sandbag and catch up to the other Pax. Upon closing the gap, Pax B would then carry the sandbag until it was his turn to stop with another Pax. This was repeated until all Pax carried once and caught up twice.
Returning from our 2.3 mile route, we still had time to complete a quick lap around the Union Point Park block, with each Pax taking a final leg with the sandbag.
Total distance covered of approximately 2.5 miles for the morning.
Circled up for Name-O-Rama, Announcements and Prayerful Conclusion.
