You want me to run with that?

You want me to run with that?

8 SPEARHEAD faithful attacked the Log Relay Race like they were trying to qualify for the Olympics this morning around the track at Carmel Middle.  Not sure if we were really moving all that fast, but when you’ve got a 40lb pack on and carrying a 40 lb log, running becomes complete insanity!

 The Thang

 Mosey to Fields- routine begins promptly at 05:29

 SSH x 25

IW x 25

 Log Relay Race

All competitors perform exercise for each round until passed the log when it is time to sprint to the next leg

T1 and T2 take off sprinting with Log on shoulder approx 100M each leg

When you reach next teammate, pass log off and start doing exercises.  Other partner sprints 100M to next teammate – all the way around track

 (2) teams of 4 PAX equally spread out around Track (T1 and T2 each had a PAX racing against each other for each Leg of the race)

(2) at each end zone and (2) at 50 yard line

Winning team assesses a penalty on losing team – to be performed afterwards

12 Count Body Builder in Cadence x 10

Shimmy, Shim, Shim 15 yards



 As always, the PAX killed it out there today.  The 25 Man Makers were pretty tough as when we reached 10, complete silence took over and all you could hear was the gasping for air from our lungs and the wavering cadence of the Q.  Needless-to-Say, if you are doing the 1001 challenge, good luck!

 I wish I had a camera on me at the time so I could have taken a picture of Liquor-Sicle sprinting with that log, coming towards me yelling, “Team 2 isn’t going to lose this round!”..Like a man possessed…T-Claps for the extra effort he was running faster than most people without the 80lbs of additional weight

 After a few rounds of the relay race, the exercises became incrementally harder, and it was nice to see beasts like BLC, BTB, Sweetness, Dora, Culkin, Iron Horse, Liquor-Sicle continue powering through with so much determination.  SPEARHEAD is accomplishing a few great things, and one of those is mental strength.  When most would cheat or give up, SPEARHEAD Pax kick it up another notch…”Our Amps go to 11”…

 As always an honor to lead you through these routines!

Awesome routine today, Hoff. I think I spent more time gasping for air between my legs of the relay than I did doing the PT. I liked that everything was ready to go right at 5:30. No wasted time there!

I was sad to find out that Angler was not able to come out this morning. He will be there on Tuesday, so we will have to wait til then to give him his SPEARHEAD patch!

Culkin proudly received his SPEARHEAD patch today, one day late due to my fartsack yesterday. Oops!

a sweet workout. next time let’s use the big log (NOT!).
i believe the term they use on the goruck sites is “army knees”.
looking forward to getting my Man Badge on Tuesday!

Great routine today Hoff! I was tired by 10:30 asking was it time for lunch yet!

Dora, I kept looking out for a shark attack…which came in round two of running the log!

It’s not a shark attack – it’s a SHARKNADO attack.

Only one way to combat a SHARKNADO attack. CHAIN SAW

Aye. Now the first F3 Workout to have its own logo, shirt and twitter feed BEFORE it had its HardLaunch, now has its own website. That’s also a first.

We have a very strong and passionate group of leaders at SPEARHEAD, and I couldn’t be prouder to be involved with these men.

We hope you will be able to visit us soon, DREDD. Maybe even at the 9/28 mini ruck, perhaps? 😉

Aye Dredd – spearhead has been having a hard getting out of its shell and becoming visible :-)).
Somewhat related question: a number of the pax (south, metro, north, Winston Salem) are doing the GRC on the 19th. A lot of questions about wearing the F3 colors on our rucks. Are we able to order a set of f3 goruck patches or are those special issue for customs only?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
