Loopin the Ballantyne Lakes

6 SOBs woke up this morning and decided they were destined for greatness. The type of greatness that men can’t get from the fartsack or any other Friday morning bootcamp (Cough*Centurion*Cough). This is The Brave… A place where iron sharpens iron faster. A place where the bonds of brotherhood strengthens quicker because of the level of red pill pain that we push ourselves and each other through. This is the Brave, join us for more.

Here’s what we did:

The Thang:

Mosey to COP Burpees X 10 OYO, High knee Squat jumps X 10 OYO, Merkins X 10 IC

The Loopin begins:

Mosey over to the top of the stairs beside the Crane Lake (Pond with the bridge named by Dash- my 2.0). Run 1 lap around Crane Lake (counterclockwise), run up the stairs, do 10 burpees OYO X 5. Once you’re finished run around the lake clockwise to the 6 and finish out the loop.

Mosey over to Bull Pond (behind the bull ring). Run 1 lap around the pond (counterclockwise), 20 squats, 20 merkins X 2. Once you’re finished run around the lake clockwise to the 6 and finish out the loop.

Mosey over to the dock at Snake Pond (behind the BofA building). Run 1 lap around the pond (counterclockwise), 20 CDD, 10 in and out planks X 2. Once you’re finished run around the lake clockwise to the 6 and finish out the loop.

Mosey over to the Pull-up bars on the fitness trail. Run 1 lap around the Lock Ness (counterclockwise), 10 pull-ups, 20 dips X 2. Once you’re finished run around the lake clockwise to the 6 and finish out the loop.

COT

Moleskin:

The temperatures were cold, but we warmed up very quickly. Mr. Bean, Fire Hazard and YHC launched from the Vine at 0500 for a 1.4 mile pre run. We stopped by back by The Vine and picked Mic Check, Soft Pretzel and Irish Crème up and off we went.

Great work by all this morning. We never really stopped moving. Mr. Bean smoked everyone on the loops, but Soft Pretzel and Fire Hazard were right on his heels. Mic Check broke his finger at the Thanksgiving Day Football game and the good news is we only heard a little whining. It was great to have Irish Crème back out in the Gloom with us. It’s been a while since he’s been out and we were glad to have him.

It was an honor to lead you men in The Gloom
