The Thang: Ruck the Northview 5K track, stopping about every 1/3 mile for alternating merkins and squats. Start at the cars, cross the parking lot past the out buildings to the start of the track. Thanks to Maize for helping Q figure out I didn’t need the map I printed online since the 5K track is marked. Ruck down to drive crossing off Hazel Del; 10 merkins. Ruck to the track turn by Main; 10 squats. Ruck back to drive crossing; 10 merkins. Ruck down through the woods; ground was pretty sloppy. Out of the woods, bypassing the frozen flooded area; 10 squats. Thanks to Brickyard for the feedback on how confusing Q was making the start of the exercise. Ruck down to the baseball field and back up along the drive (Q implemented feedback which seemed to help); 10 merkins at the crossing. Ruck through the trees back to the turn by Main; 10 more merkins (I think – lost track) and back to cars.
Weather was near perfect for this mid-February ruck. Enjoyed the Northview CX track for a variety in terrain and elevation. Q really appreciated the support from all the PAX who helped work through all the rookie mistakes. Glad to have Bailout join us from out of town. Great conversation that covered a variety of topics too numerous to mention.
Thanks to all for sharing a great ruck this morning!
