the Feather, the Brick, the Truck

AO: Starting Line

When: 05/10/2023

QIC: Script Kiddie

PAX (4): Dunshire, Script Kiddie, Sirmixalot, Suarez


In a recent podcast I listen to there was a concept called the feather, the brick, and the truck
Life will try to get you to change/correct something and first it will give you a gentle nudge or push to change kind of like a feather.
If you do not learn the lesson you the thing that you need to correct will get harder/feel worse, kind of like getting hit by a brick.
If you still do not change and keep ignoring the change you need to do the next step is life/bad decisions can completely take your feet out from underneath you and it can be like getting hit by a truck.

I really liked the life lesson tied to this and am honestly getting close to truck status in some areas of my life and wanted to share the concept with all the PAX that showed up today.

Pre-ruck as just me and once I got back Dunshire and SirMixalot were already there, ready to go, with Suarez showing up just a few minutes before go time

The Thang:

I started covering the info tied to the feather the brick and the truck which I covered in the preamble

Feather- gentle nudge/ subtle push to change direction
Circled the park stopping at each speed bump, there were 5
10 LBCs
10 Squats
10 Merkins
Circled back to the entrance to the park

Brick- Then next nudge/chance for course correction is going to be more complicated and hurt more.
Circled the park stopping at each speed bump, there were 5
10 Burpees
10 Squat jumps
10 Crab Humpers
Circled back to the entrance to the park

Truck- This one will take you off your feet and cause much straining and pain, so this one had to hurt.
We started to go another round but with time running out and a slight tinge of compassion by me, we modifed
5 Happy Jacks (3 SSHs, 2 BBSUs)
5 Absolutions (To much to recap here, but you know it is not easy)
5 Banthas (1 BBSU, 4 Crunch frogs)
We only managed to complete 3 stops on this round but I think the point was made since some PAX stated they felt like they got hit by a truck.

At this point time for COT

Thankful for these men and how we can push each other, even though after this morning they may like me a bit less.
