Moleskin – 5 PAX posted this morning! Awesome to see. 5 PAX posting a Tuesday or Thursday last year would have been the norm. But 5 isn’t enough, we need you all. I’m also going to find the runners in you and get you out there.

The morning was beautiful, The sunrise had some great purples and oranges. I love coming up the hill and seeing the sunrise open up – a great view.

We set out on the standard ruck, heading north around the building. and then down and around the east side of campus.

Moleskin – Motorboat used the ruck as a way to scout for ideas on his Q Thursday…maybe this is concerning. Tulip was excited to be out there and change his routine from needing to be at school at that time. We had a nice ruck and talked along the way. The good weather makes it really enjoyable to be out there moving.

Moleskin:

Today the lines were drawn and the battle preparations have begun. On May 30th we will have the Battle of Headlock and Nomad. The battle challenges will require Strength, Endurance, and Speed.

The workout we did today has some clues as to what the battle challenges will be. I’ll provide more clues as the month progresses. Its time to up your game if you want to win.

For any PAX that wasn’t there, we’ll add you to a team – I’ve got a plan for that. If you EH (emotional headlock – get someone to show up to F3) anyone they are automatically on your team. If your team has more people, the depth will help in the battle challenges.

Most importantly, we are also sending off Woodchuck for hopefully less than 13 months. We will be thinking of you and look forward to your return. You know we all have your back – if you need us to do anything here we’ve got you covered. Take care!

It was a pleasure! Thank you men.

Monday Ruckday 4/29/19

Weather: 46 degrees and clear skies

PAX:

  1. Beater
  2. Motorboat
  3. Logger

Disclaimer

Thang: Motorboat joined Beater and I for a run. We about a mile warm up, some stretches and exercises, then a little over 2 miles.

Warmup:

Out of the wind we went through some stretches: Downward Dog, Quads, Side lunge, Butterfly, Runners stretch

Exercises: 10x Dead squats, 10x Side lunges each leg, 11 Apollo Ohno (I think thats their name – or skaters).

Run: We headed back to the cars so Motorboat could get to work. Then Beater and I set out towards Cornerstone Lutheran Church. We did a lap around the church and headed back. We made sure to get the full run of the hill.

Recover Recover

Moleskin – DC and State had to back out during the night because of sickness – missed you, see you 2 next Monday. We had a great run this morning – a good pace where we could talk as we went along. It was great to catch up and chat about our lives.

Waking up and posting on Monday is tough. It is absolutely worth it for both the fellowship and fitness. My natural preference is to run by myself – but I get so much more out of having company talking with friends.

Thank you Men!

Monday Ruckday – 4/22/19

Weather: 46 degrees and clear skies

PAX:

  1. Marshall
  2. Motorboat
  3. Logger

Disclaimer remembered.

Thang: We broke into 2 groups. Motorboat and Marshall were the ruckers. And Logger ran.

The ruckers headed West to pick up miles along Main then back and up the hill.

 

The runner did a warm up lap (with watch set to treadmill on accident).

Stretched – Downward Dog, Quads, Side lunge, Calf.

Then out for another 2+ miles heading west to see the ruckers.

Recover Recover

Moleskin – Marshall and Motorboat seemed to have a ruck. It ended with Motorboat giving some Ric Flair “WOHOOs” which is a positive sign. I had a good run, listened to a podcast (if I wasn’t going to have real friends run with me I’d have podcast friends with me) on Refs in the NBA and how difficult their job is. I wouldn’t want their job.

If you have an idea on Monday Ruckday/Runday to make it so you’ll post, let me know. I want you there and I see no reason why it couldn’t be the day with the highest attendance. DM if you have an idea.

Thank you Men!

Recover Recover

Moleskin – We had a good walk and talk. It is genuinely a good time and appreciate chatting with Marshall and Motorboat.

I’m trying to figure out how to get Monday Ruckday/Runday to stick out and get good numbers. I’m not sure why its not getting great attendance – if you have thoughts, ideas, anything to share then let me know.

Thank you Men!

Recover Recover

Moleskin – Motorboat, Marshall and I had a good walk and talk. We covered some job stuff, school, and weekend. Keep pushing to EH! Get them to show up for a Monday Ruckday – an easy way to get into the routine.

PAX:

  1. Tulip

Recover Recover

Moleskin – Hopefully Saturday’s snow is the last until next fall. Tulip is to blame for the snow, he just put is ice scraper away for the summer. Tulip started us out with some words of encouragement about starting the week off right, I couldn’t agree with him more. It was time and energy well spent on a little fitness and a great conversation.

Thank you Tulip!

PAX:

  1. Motorboat
  2. Logger

Disclaimer briefly mentioned.

Thang: We stayed close for a bit to see if we’d have any late shows. We then did 2 laps averaging under an 18 minute mile.

Recover Recover

Moleskin – I was concerned about being under dressed but quickly was warm and the breeze felt good. We chatted about work, leaders of companies, and how some are over paid while others might be worth it. Great start to the week, we need this Monday morning thing to catch on. If you are not doing it, you are missing out.

Thank you Motorboat!
