11 men posted for a Centurion FAMRAP. YHC put out a preblast that is below. Disclaimer given during the initial mosey to make sure of 0530 start. Couple of the crew pulled in at the buzzer. Off we went.
A couple of weeks ago, A51 Nantan, Alf, brought a taste of WAMRAP (Wednesday As Many Reps As Possible) to Centurion. It was brutal. A swift kick in the teeth. Just what the men of Centurion needed. Margo, Centurion co-site Q with YHC, has requested that this be a monthly occurrence at Centurion. At least in November, when he has the Cerberus Q tomorrow, and will not be in attendance. We will do a warm up mosey, COP, and then run a modified Redemption Loop for approximately 35 minutes. It will go like this:
Start at Level 4, Stairwell 1 (closest to the Tartarus entrance)
20 Jump Squat
Descend stairs to ground. 5 Burpees. AYG clockwise around the football field. Stop at Scoreboard (far left corner from Start). 5 Burpees. Continue AYG around field to Visitor Entrance (2nd Entrance on your left).
20 Merkins. Bear Crawl to the crosswalk. AYG up Stairwell 1.
Repeat as many reps as possible. Stay to the right on stairs. Men will be going up and down.
So the above preblast was the plan. We got through 5 loops before the traffic picked up on campus. There must have been a field trip or something. A bus pulled in, students, staff, even the garbage truck. All cruising through the thoroughfare between Tartarus and the football field, which happened to be part of our loop. Q called for a stop at the end of the 5th loop. Quick Mary to regroup.
Continue with FAMRAP theme.
Start at Stairwell 1 Level 4. 20 Jump Squat. AYG to Stairwell 2. 10 Heels to Heaven. Descend to ground. 5 Burpees. AYG to Stairwell 1 up to Level 4. Repeat until 0614. Mosey back to launch. We got 4 of these in.
Fallout had the prototype Garmin GPS tracker on his wrist. He called it a great triathalon watch. Tagalong referenced Back to the Future. Sure enough, on the ride home, saw a kid on a hoverboard cruising down Carmel. Shit you not, really happened. Couldn’t figure out what the kid was riding until I got close. Marty McFly shit there. Must be a sign that it is time to introduce my 2.0’s to the cinematic genius of that movie. Guarantee my son will want a Delorean after watching. He’s into cars right now. Probably will be putting the hoverboard on the Christmas list if I had to guess. We’ll see. Keep you posted on that.
Magoo had on his signature hi-vis warm-up jacket, complimented with pants. The rest of us had on shorts and t-shirts. Just saying.
Simple plan this morning. You really can’t go wrong with an AMRAP. Get that heart rate up and spend some quality time in the pain cave. Solid crew getting after it. Missed our co-site Q, Margo. He was over at Cerberus on Q. Sure he put a good one together for those men. Time for a garbage pickup at Catholic. The deck was littered.
Thanks to Thunder Road for the takeout.
Vagabond is Saturday. Awesome CSAUP opportunity. Preblast HERE
Veteran’s Day Convergence on Monday 11/11 at South Charlotte Middle School. Thunder Road and Hopper on Q.
