6 Monday Ruckers (Gummi Bear, To Big to Fail, Triple XXX Family Restaurant, Noodles, Archive, Captain Crunch (QIC))
With August upon us and the new Goruck Challenge dropping for the month, it was definitely time for a “Get After It” Monday Ruckday. So why not grab the longest workout and ask the PAX to show up 15min earlier? The Gloom was still thick on arrival but the same squad from last week rolled out of the Fartsack and chose the harder thing.
We decided to sprint first and ruck later, just in case some PAX didn’t get the 5:15 memo. The PAX paired off and ran sprints:
- #1 PAX 50m sprint, #2 PAX Overhand ruck hold
- #2 PAX 50m sprint, #1 PAX Overhand ruck hold
- #1 PAX 100m sprint, #2 PAX Overhand ruck hold
- #2 PAX 100m sprint, #1 PAX Overhand ruck hold
(on the third round, take a sandbag for the sprint part)
After the PAX were thoroughly winded with that as a warm-up, we set off on a 3 mile loop. One 55# Sandbag and one 32# sand-sack were employed as “shareable” weight and passed around to everyone by the time we got back.
After all my solo-rucking, today was a big pleasant surprise of non-stop conversation. Good conversations with folks and a steady 15 min pace on a beautiful morning. Really couldn’t have gotten much more pleasant. Might need to add weight or up the pace next time, but it was a good, solid day with some fine brothers.

(Commz note: I think my instagram filter was set to “Monet” on the first half of the workout… got it fixed when the sun rose…)
