Thanksgiving Day Recon

When: 11/23/2017

QIC: Mufasa

PAX (): Miller Time, Do Si Do, Saint 2.0

A Fantastic 4 post at The Rubicon for The Thanksgiving Day Recon. Each man driving over there wondering whether he’d be the only one, and as Qs are, each had a plan if there was no one else there. Funny how it takes individuals to make a group.

YHC pulled the short card, which was preceded by a quick 1.5 mile run around the outer loop.

For those not familiar, here is the MARSOC Short Card (sometimes: Recon Short Card):

1. 30 Push-ups
2. 30 Air squats
3. 30 Crunches
4. 10 Burpees
5. 10 Windmills
6. 30 Push-ups
7. 30 Mountain climbers
8. 30 Flutter kicks (4-count)
9. 10 Burpees
10. 10 Cherry pickers (4-count)
11. 30 Push-ups
12. 30 Star jumpers (or jumping jacks)
13. 30 Back Extensions (“supermans”)
14. 10 Burpees
15. 10 Chain breakers (sub 30 monkey humpers)
16. 30 Push-ups
17. 30 Lunges (2-count)
18. 30 Hello dollies
19. 10 Burpees
20. 10 Trunk twists (sub Makhtar N’Diayes)
21. 3 Max sets of dead-hang pull-ups or flexed-arm hangs
We did the first 20 in the parking lot and moved over to the pull up bar area for the the last routine.
  • MT not fading here – the Man is still as quick as he’s always been.
  • Nice working alongside Do Si Do again – been too long for YHC – injuries keeping me from posting at regular scheduled workouts.
  • Saint2.0 posting first time at Rubicon! Breath of fresh air having him there, just as good as working alongside him at the GoRuck.
  • More stories from the epic CSAUP event that 11 PAX from The Alpha attended this weekend. All seems just a distant memory now.
Pre-Ruck Saturday 0530 at Webb Bridge Park.
  • Prayers for Do Si Do’s grandfather.
  • Prayers for safe travels this Holiday.
  • Thanks and praise for this Great Country, Family and F3.
