Ruck It BackBlast – (No) Back Up Plan

  • When: 07/06/20
  • QIC: Bitcoin
  • The Pax: Mr. Roboto, Bitcoin (QIC)


Beautiful morning alongside the river today.  Mr. Roboto and YHC gathered and got started with very little fanfare.  A couple of ideas were briefly discussed and then YHC proceeded with the plan for the morning.

WARM-O-RAMA

  • Pullups, 10x, OYO
  • Ruck Up for short walk from Gazebo to corner of S. Front & E. Front near Convention Center Gazebo
  • Rucked Up Curb Irkins, 15x, OMD

THE THANG

From this point until further notice, all rucking was to be completed without the standard ruck-on-back carry.  Only alternative carry would be used.  This would be Pax choice of ruck-on-front, suitcase carry, static overhead press carry, on-the-shoulder carry, etc.  Ruck over bridge and around to the railroad tracks by SECU and return to Convention Center.  Ruck back over bridge to observation deck and return to gathering point.

With about 7 minutes remaining, we resumed a standard ruck orientation and completed two laps around the Union Point Park at a much quicker pace.

Hard Stop @ 0616

Enjoyed the conversation this morning, Mr. Roboto.

Need Q’s for Bushwood and The Point.
