Pass the Parcel

AO: Rubicon

When: 2023-09-26

QIC: Irene

PAX (7): FannyPack, Focker, Groundhog, Pinkey, Special K, Zohan


This is the second of 2 Qs I scheduled before BRR to make sure I got back to the real work. HCs were low, but Pax still showed.


Zohan and YHC walked in from our pre-ruck right at 5:30. YHC didn't even drop off the ruck before launching into the greeting, disclaimer, and mosey. Mosey around the starting parking lot before SSH, Weedpickers, Toy Soldiers, Arm Circles and COVIDs. A quick Wheel of Merkins (10 at each position) and the warm-up was complete. Off to the Concession Stand.

The Thang:

We were fortunate enough to have the lights on at the Field of Dreams for 2/3 of the beatdown before groundkeeping cut the lights off. Oh Well. Last week I led a Millennial Beatdown at the Boneyard, and after moderate success I thought I'd deploy it at Rubicon for Pinkey and his love of Millennials - but with a few changes. 10 sets of exercises, 100 reps each, after the first Pax finishes, everyone runs. Those are the standard rules. I also added "Pass the Parcel" with a 30# rucksack which Pax rotated amongst each other after each set.
  1. Plank Jacks
  2. Dips
  3. Sumo Squats
  4. Single Count Fire Hydrants (Lift one leg to the side like a dog)
  5. Single Count Mountain Climbers
  6. Merkin
  7. Single Count Lunges
  8. Single Count J. Los
  9. Single Count 1-Legged Donkey Kicks
  10. Burpees
We made great time through the sets and got to Burpees with 4 minutes and 30 seconds left in the beatdown. Pax pushed through the Burpees, but no one achieved 100 before YHC called for the mosey to the shovel flag. A Mary of LBCs and Dying Cockroaches finished the beatdown.


No prayers, praises, or announcements to share, so everyone take care as we head into "beer season." - Pinkey
