With a heat index threatening our fun, 5 stalwart PAX (Archive, Banks, Jazz Hands, Noodles, Crunch(QIC)) posted in a muggy 80 degrees before it got any hotter. The Q’s genius plan to keep exertion to a maximum and heat related smart-sacking to a minimum was the addition of a makeshift kiddie pool courtesy of some not yet utilized workbench lumber. It worked surprisingly well for being slapped together, and we got good and soaked regularly throughout the rotation. We had rucks enough to go around, so no one had to do the modified coupon version.
- Motivators IC x 7
- Tin Soldiers IC x 14
The Water Workout:
- 100 Ruck Squats
- 1 Kraken Ruck Burpee in the “pool” (3 hand release merkins)
- Ruck up the hill
- 70 Ruck Push-ups
- 33 Ruck Swings
- 30 Lunges down the hill
- Mandatory water-break
- Repeat all of the above steps 2 more times
- PAX played “Deck of Pain” (draw two: 1st card is your exercise, 2nd card is your rep count) with the workout cards until the 6 arrived.
- Tear down the “pool” and haul it to the Q’s car
COR/NOR/COT: Prayers for job applications, upcoming work-travel for Banks, “Crunch’s rat disease-thing”, Noodles 2.0 (and his room!) — praise that we all beat the heat and lived to tell the tale.
Thought of the Day: It has been a long time since I did that many modified push-ups.
