Single file line for a trial of “Ruck Around Run”. YHC is continuing training for the HTL next weekend and was still wearing the 45+ lb ruck I’ve been wearing at BCs since December. We Mosey in a single file line. The lead man takes the ruck and runs around the line of PAX and hands off the ruck to the next lead man then falls in to the back. We did one lap around the Triangle doing the ruck around run until I got back to the front of the line and got the ruck back. We then moseyed via the road to the block pile and each PAX grabbed a block and assembled back to the flag for more fun:

Communication. Communication is a two way street and we need to know how to be a listener and a talker. If something seems off or someone seems down, go talk to him, lift him up, let him vent, be there for your brother. Know that sometimes people just want to vent and aren’t looking for you to propose solutions. Be upfront and ask your friend if he wants to vent or if he want ideas for possible fixes. F3 provides us the opportunity to form meaningful relationships; know that I want you to feel free to talk to me about anything! And I’m sure that near all of us would say the same. It can be hard to ask for help, but we’re here for when you need us! I know first hand the good that can come from asking for help and asking for prayers. These men have prayed over me, sat down and talked with me, gave me valuable advice, gave me their numbers so that I could call them anytime. F3 is more than just a workout group!
Peaches summed it pretty well with his Facebook post after the BC: “BE ADVISED: When you post at TECTONIC, show up early and warm up on your own. We get right after it! Defib started with 20 burpees and a pushup/situp PT test. (Tough guys play at The Ponds) 💪💪”
Work was done at Tectonic. Great Job, Men!
