Need for Speed at the Barracks
THE SCENE: Chilly
F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER: This happened while walking
WARM-O-RAMA: This did not happen
YHC, Bookworm, and some other crazies are training for a GORUCK Star Course 50 mile ruck. As such, YHC wanted to get in 6 miles this morning. I got there early and got two solo miles, then the three of us got out another 3.8. We shuffled for 30 seconds after each whole mile. We could’ve finished that last mile, but I wanted a few minutes at the end for 1 minute of AMRAP squats and then a round of merkins to failure (with ruck, then without ruck, then on your knees). The merkins took a while because Four Eyes is a beast and never stopped. My pace for all 5.8 miles was 13:57/mile. Mission accomplished.
COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
The holiday season might be a very joyful time for you, but for a lot of people it can be very difficult. There are broken homes, broken marriages, widows left behind, children left without parents, and on and on. Keep your eyes open to the people God has put around you and invite them into your joy this season. Be hospitable.
Great pace this morning and great ruckership.
