Moleskin:

Appreciate the opportunity to Q this morning. Weather was perfect and it was awesome to see the early morning moon while running up the hill at the end of the workout. Privileged to be connected to such a strong group of men. Thanks for the accountability! Mumble chatter was mostly concerns about the number of motivators picked for the warmup (“looks good on paper” – so true) and general conversation to help get through.

Moleskin: The rain mostly held off but the ground was soaked. It didn’t slow us down. Q warned the men up front that there were some items from the Lovefest that we didn’t get to do and they were going to make an appearance here.

Attitudes were mostly positive. Apparently Cornwallis didn’t like the rock push, he broke his in half. Knee high attempted throwing his rock, possibly to break it, he was no Cornwallis.

Lots of mumble chatter around the tunnel of love. Some crop dusting possibly happened, no one owned up.

It was a pleasure! Thank you men.

COT

MoleSkin:

-It was an honor to get to Q my first workout.  Although new to the F3 scene, I’ve done a couple of rucks before.  Thanks for letting me Q!

-Some mumble chatter about the heavy bag that I am going to name El Diablo.  The difference in the bags was very apparent but made for a good change in the workout.

-Two FNGs today who kicked some major butt, especially having never rucked before.  Please welcome Lead Pipe and Bay Watch

-I’m grateful that I’ve meet all of you and get to work out with an awesome group of dudes.  I appreciate you pushing me to be a better person daily.  

-T-claps to Marshall and Tulip.  Tulip did a 6 mile ruck last night, a new record for him! Marshall busted out a 20 miler overnight and needed some rest this morning.

-Recover, hydrate, and eat well.

AYE!

Skin of the Mole:
-For those who completed the Murph yesterday, we were pretty smoked during this workout. I salute you all. Going to feel this one for a while.
-After losing sleep last night due to worrying about the workout I was going to do (let’s just say there were a lot of burpees and a lot of running), I called an audible this morning and pulled out an old favorite that never disappoints.
-Great having a big turnout. Mumblechatter was present, groaning and complaining was happening, including YHC. I even thought I might Splash Merlot at my own workout at one point.
-Everyone gave great effort today and it was awesome to see. I hope you got your money’s worth.

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.

Moleskin

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!

Mumble Chatter was low probably due to the VQ slightly overdoing it on the workout. Q was forced to improvise adapt and overcome and reduce some of the counts to the approval of the Pax.
