Backblast #323 – Speed Ruck’in Around Town

Black Ops on a Wednesday…I feel the need, the need for speed – ruck!

Pre-Blast Via Slack (1/7/20):

Black Ops 1/8/20; 0530-0615; Calder Plaza; Bring your rucks and/or weight vests (or just show up). We will go as far as the group & time will allow.

HC in the thread below…or don’t. SYITG! 

AO – The Calder | 23 degrees | 56% humidity | Super Windy

[0530 – Core Principles recited to 4 Pax] – Forest, Soft Spot, Less, MAD COW (QIC).

The Thang

No warm-up – just ruck up. We rucked and shuffled around downtown Grand Rapids. The route entailed a lot of bridges:

Fulton St Bridge
GVSU Pedestrian Bridge
Pearl St. Bridge
DeVos Place Bridge
6th St Bridge

Then we headed to “The Stairway To Heaven”. Did the stairs once and then shuffled back to the AO to meet the time hack.

In total, we rucked / shuffled 3.6 miles in 45 minutes.
