Schools Out For The Summer

7 Pax posted at #Basecamp and started the summer vacation off on the right foot with DownPAINment and here’s how it went down.

COP

Mosey down to the track, take a lap then circle up on the football field for…Wait a minute, YHC notices a sign stating that the field is in the process of being seeded/fixed. Quick audible and we head toward to baseball fields and notice a sprinkler is running on one of them. We chose door #3 and settle in for COP.

  • SSH x 20
  • Merkins x 10
  • IW x 20
  • Low Slow Squats x 20
  • Windmills x 20

The Thang:

Moving over to home plate we engaged in an odd #Starfish due to the relocation from the football field, but the concept is still the same. Start at home plate with 5 merkins. Run to the LF 10 CCDs, return to home plate for 5 merkins. Run to the Left Center light pole, 10 4 count fluttter kicks, return to home plate for 5 merkins. Run to the Right Center light pole, 10 4 count mountain climbers, return to home plate for 5 merkins. Run to the RF foul pole , 10 LBCs. Repeat for 3 total rounds.

Mosey over to Semi Gloss’s office for the People’s Chair with 2 rounds of air presses x 50.

We then moved over to the little patch of grass/dirt by the school for the Abs version of our friend Jack Webb (Ab Webb). 1 Merkin, 4 Heels to Heaven up to 5.

Moleskin:

  • Great effort by the PAX today, looks like summer vacation is in full effect but 7 die hard posted this morning.
  • ABBA was out front all morning #LarryBird. Goonie suggested we put a weight vest or ruck on him to slow him down.
  • Good to seen Damn Gina again, heard he’s posting at Mountain Goat, Slim Fast will have him on a BRR team before long.
  • This morning’s audible to the football was eerily familiar to when YHC had the Death Valley Q only to find the track had been ripped up.
  • Goonie DM’d YHC last night asking if I was good to Q.  Glad he did as YHC had not looked at the schedule.
  • Marvel and Thumper seemed to be enjoying some quality 2nd F.
  • Jello seemed to enjoy the ab work this AM.
  • Goonie was only behind ABBA and got some extra credit with a pre-run as he works his way back from a knee injury.
  • Thanks to Jello for the take out, keep Utah and his family in your prayers.

COP

  • SSH x 20
  • Merkins x 15
  • IW x 20
  • Squats x 20
  • Windmills x 20

Open up the minivan and grab our coupons we can exchange for Good Livin’ and mosey over to the parking deck. Partner up, 1 coupon for each pair.

Old Man Moleskin

  • Great, veteran crew today. YHC arrived at the AO to find Loogie, The Worm, and Cul De Sac already there, #Kotters to The Worm after a long absence.
  • Mr. Bean mentioned on Slack about a ruck and he wasn’t far off.
  • YHC wanted to mix it up, and while keeping the miles less than 2 miles, 1.75 according to my watch. Fewer miles = more work, and the PAX didn’t disappoint. YHC here many of the PAX groaning, and grunting while working the sandbags and rucks. Thanks to the PAX for indulging me by bringing out the toys.
  • Cul De Suc was lamenting about hurting his back after sneezing, things you don’t hear at workout with 45< PAX.
  • Thanks to Crabcake for bringing his ruck, we almost didn’t have enough coupons to go around.
  • Frehley’s Q-Jacked for a moment incorporating a kettlebell with the People’s Chair and air presses.
  • Margo was killing it today, no surprise, he was #WarBaby at a hair under 40.
  • Mr. Bean hit YHC up on Slack asking if I was bringing an FNG or other PAX who were Site FNGs as Q. YHC was not aware of this requirement and promptly texted RunStopper and High Tide who graciously posted. High Tide was looking for cookies at the end of the workout, but there weren’t any and no Nuun products, #Cobains.
  • Runstopper gave YHC some grief on the lengthy instructions at beginning of the parking deck sets, but they were clearly less complicated than a Flipper #Weinkie.
  • The SOB PAX talk about the “Fourth F” which obviously is flatulence they way Frehley’s and Kirby were ripping it up.
  • Thanks to Mr. Bean and Frehley’s Comet for the opportunity to lead and please sound off with any #MumbleChatter.

We returned to the start point with one minute left, time enough for a little Mary.

  • YHC wanted to head off campus today, and after checking with Sensei confirmed this may have been the first time the Peak PAX visited Matthews Town Hall.
  • There was some unexpected traffic by the Beer Temple this morning, it’s 5 o’clock some where.
  • Earlier this week, YHC mentioned to Sensei that we would be hitting some new territory and replied he would be doing the same at his next Q. Little did YHC know that we had the same location in mind. #Cobains Sensei, didn’t meant to steal your thunder.
  • Schmedium’s second post at Peak 51, good work and keep coming out.
  • It was colder than the PAX expected today, and Header was espousing the benefits of wearing tights, veteran move.

  • YHC showed up today greeted by Site Q Emeritus Fireman Ed, when I informed him I had the Q he said something to the effect “good, not a lot of running’, well we managed to get 2.6 miles in anyway.
  • Cheese Curd chose Base Camp over DMZ thinking we wouldn’t run much either, according to Strava we did a bit more than their 2.4 miles.
  • Learned that Cheese Curd completed 3 legs of Ragnar, over 2 years. This year might be the year he does them all in the same event.

  • Cheese Curd and Fireman Ed were #LarryBird at the 7s on Coburn.
  • YHC received a back-handed compliment from Cheese Curd, which is a compliment in any manner.
  • YHC kidded Costanza that I was glad he was there so I wasn’t War Daddy, but the guy keeps getting stronger and has come a long way since he started. Keep it up.
  • Thanks to Goonie, Thunder Road, and Benny for the opportunity to lead

APFT at Stonehenge

11 PAX ignored their #FartSacks on this fine Saturday Morning and posted at the best AO in  SOB land. Here’s how it went down.

COP:

  • SSH X 20
  • Merkins x 10
  • Imperial Walkers x 20
  • Windmills x 20
  • Squats x 20

The Thang:

Head off to the Bull Ring for a lap and then a modified ARMY Physical Fitness Test (APFT), minimizing the 2 mile run to a 1 mile run.

  • 2 Min Max Push-ups
  • 2 Min Max Sit-ups
  • 1 mile Run

Times up, mosey back to the start point.

Mary:

  • Flutter Kicks x 15
  • Dollys x 15
  • Rosalita x 15
  • Heels to Heaven x 10

Moleskine:

  • Great work by the PAX today. YHC wanted to try something different, the APFT is a good gut check for me, and in the Pathfinder ruck training rotation. The APFT is typically used in GORUCK Heavy events as part of the administrative phase of the event, but Cadre are known to break it out during Tough challenge events as well.
  • What YHC likes about the APFT is that it measures you on 3 events, push-ups, sit-ups, and the run. Can be strong on 1 or all three events and still finish with a good score. It is weighted by age, and you receive a score up to 100 for each event, with a max score of 300. The Army passing score is 180 and the Army Selection score is 250 or higher. There are apps for APFT calculator, but more information available here.
  • Haggis killed the APFT, push-ups and sit-ups good form of course and crushed the run. When I mentioned to him that the APFT calculator is age-weighted, he wanted to be measured as an 18 year old, he still crushed the score.
  • The APFT took a little bit longer than YHC anticipated and thought we would have time left over for more exercises. Better off planning for more.
  • TCLAPS to the PAX for the the pre-run, we covered 3.6 miles during the workout and they put in another 3 during the pre-run.
  • YHC took directions from Wild Turkey which may or may not have been a good idea.
  • Congrats to Cheddar and his M on the news of a Baby Cheddar on the way.
  • Thanks to Wild Turkey and Nard Dog for the opportunity to lead and please sound off with any mumblechatter.

  • Upon arriving Header notified me that he would leave if we went on the soggy football field. After the second lap around the track and turned towards the field, YHC clearly heard a PAX,  say “Don’t do it”. The drainage SCMS field would be the worst in Area 51 if not for the one at Old providence. Header noticeably performed all of his exercises on the track.
  • Fireman Ed was warming up in the parking lot when YHC arrived, it must’ve helped he was #LarryBird during the Pyramid.

  • I wasn’t sure how many PAX would post this AM and brought more coupons just in case but we had more than enough rucks to pass around.
