Dunphy’s Disturbingly Diabolical VQ Leaves Pax Dumbfounded

***Written by Dunphy and posted on his behalf***

***Conditions: 34, clear and cold, light breeze.***

15 PAX crawled out of their cozy fartsacks to join YHC on his VQ.  Mosey down to FIELD one for COP and PAX provided rite of passage razzing the newbie Q. Yes, I’m going the right way FIELD GOAL! YHC should have told them to take their shoes off and swap them but YHC had something special in store for the PAX.  Warmed up with standard COP and then started the fun stuff.  Executed a countdown work out set from one sideline to the other.   Two new moves, the crucible merkin (Start in a wide merkin stance with hands much further out than shoulder-width. Rotate hands 90 degrees outward until they are facing away from the body. Perform a merkin.) and star jumps ( From balled up squat position jump up and spread your arms and legs into an X or “star” then return to balled up squat position.)  It was AWESOME seeing the PAX jumping like cheerleaders, GIVE ME AN “F3”!

Indian Run to far field with hill.  Did not know how GORUCK Vet PAX would react to some GOOD LIVIN flashback of bear crawl, reverse bear crawl, and uphill crab crawl. The PAX had the WARRIOR SPIRIT and EMBRACED THE SUCK. Thankfully, NO flashback episodes from the PAX.  Next set of exercises included a CRAB CABARET of KICKS by the PAX. The DOGS that they are, the PAX practiced their aim with a set of LEG RAISING FIRE HYDRANTS.

Tried to get the 323 daily of MERKINS for the 10K Merkin Challenge but forgot 60 triceps MERKINS. (Plan was to do 20 triceps merkins before each bear crawl, but crawl sequence was hard enough.)  Great Job by the PAX!  YHC looks forward to doing it again.
