12 PAX showed up in freezing temperatures for Rameses which seemed exceptionally cold after recent warmer temps. 5 earned EC with a ruck stroll through campus.

The warmup:

SSH, body squats, arm circles, Imperial Walkers, merkins, some new flip over back and forth inspired by Sweats, merkins

The Thang:

Partner up and start a buddy carry. Coco gave no indication how far or long we are going. Turned out to be a good thing as we all would have probably quit then if we knew the plan. We ended up covering one full mile to the Bell tower parking lot with each PAX switching back and forth after they couldn’t handle anymore. I can assure you that a one mile buddy carry is ridiculously long.

Next, we did partner wheelbarrows up 4 flights of the parking deck stairs. At the top, we did partner elevated merkins. Nothing like having your partner lift you up so that you are overlooking one floor down of the parking deck with concrete to catch you 15 feet below. Turned out to be a trust exercise as well since no one was pushed to serious injury.

We still had the full mile to return back to OEC and by the time we got back, time was up.

COT: prayers to Champ’s mom for her upcoming surgery; possible PAX road trip to Roanoke in mid May to post one Saturday
