Snare drum workout in 2/4

Easing back into posting stuff, this is a short snare drum workout in 2/4, based on a simple accent pattern, developing a quasi-rudimental, flam drag/flam accent/flamacue-thing I improvised while warming up on a practice pad. If you don't have your flam drags together, it should be fairly challenging.  

Assume an alternating sticking , except where indicated. A complete workout with this thing would be to play each exercise 4-8 times, going on to the next one without stopping until you've finished the page. I would do that at two tempos: one comfortable, one challenging. Then repeat the entire process leading with the left hand.
