Go Ruck and Mud Run training combined?

Go Ruck and Mud Run training combined?

The shovel flag was planted and 19 men (including 2 with a ruck sack) gathered to end the week with some mud run training (sans mud)

The Thang:

COP (warm up) – SSHX25, MerkinsX20, 30 burpees (someone missed an obstacle but don’t know who – moaning starts early).

Run up and down the hill three times and then to parking lot for partner carries.

Partner 1 carries 2 to 2nd light, switch, and partner 2 carries 1 back to starting point.  Rinse and repeat.

Run to rock pile and find an appropriate sized rock (no pebbles).  Push presses until all the PAX arrive and then 30 more.  Run around football field to opposite end zone for 30 more push presses, and then back to rock pile. Plank while PAX finishes.

Run to the wall in the small parking lot for 10 wall climbs.

Run up Little Ave to shopping center for ciruit runs with Burpees.   Partner 1 starts on upper level and partner two on lower.  1 Burpee, run to other level, 2 burpees, run to other level, etc up to 7.

COP for Jay Lo (get well soon LD) X20, Dolly X15, LBC X15, and Flutter X15

Run back down Little Ave to CCHS for:

  • Wall jump up X5
  • Rock pile – See above except 15 presses
  • Partner carries – see above
  • Zig zag run – see above

COT

Nake Moleskin:

Purple Haze and Udder show up to mud run training with Ruck Sacks and the Q thinks “WTF – dissing me this am”.   Ruck Sacks and mud runs don’t really go together but I figured these guys wanted some hard work for Go Ruck preparation so no change i the plan (#weinkenotneeded).  I forgot to check to make sure PH had bricks and not a teddy bear and pillow in his ruck (#heisacraftyone).

Mighty Mite said it was one of the longest 45 minute workouts he can recall.  I think that was a good sign that we pushed pretty hard since he was the WB.

Strong work by the entire PAX.   Our workout was not far off from what the mud run feels like, sans mud, so every man in the PAX can do it.  As always it was an honor to lead such a great group of men.

Announcements:

Farside is organizing bike ride for the kids in Bulls Dogs Matter (after school program at AG) for Saturday, March 8 from 8:30 to 1:00pm at Francis Beaty Park.   We could probably use some more bikes as there are 60 kids (not all will show up) and only 15 bikes.   Watch for announcement once we get closer.   Good event to bring out middle school 2.0’s.

Mud run training on the 15th near Indian Trail, check web site for details.

Many opportunities for third F, including right after Centurion at the Panera up the street.  Contact Hops or PH if interested in learning more.

Abacus and I want to thank evertibe again for all the prayers for our younger brother Bill who is fighting a nasty brain cancer.   The prayers are working and my family appreciates all the support.

Kept us moving as usual Chelms — so to produce ample O2 deprivation – nice work.
Definitely a good look at some MudRun-like pain…reminder for me was when I smashed my knee on the first set of wall climbs.

It was a Cocky pillow pet in PH’s ruck sack and a handful of frisbees in Udder’s.

Praise God for the encouraging news about your brother Bill. We’ll keep praying; He’s always listening. Aye!

It was definitely not a smart move to wear the ruck today…but with the time drawing near, I needed to spend some quality time with it. Of course, chasing Chelms all over the place was not quality time. Of course, he chastised and mocked me throughout…even cruelly waiting for me to just get into plank and then immediately calling for the Pax to take off again. And I almost knocked myself out each time I did a burpee…at least we didn’t do that many of them today…30 at the start = ridiculous.

I neither confirm nor deny owning a Cocky pillow pet.

I knew it was going to be a long morning when we started with the 30 burpees. Chelms, you seemed to be working out some issues this morning. That was a really good beat down. I’m just glad I didn’t have a ruck on- whether or not it had frisbees or something fluffy in it. I believe Snowflake was WD today- I am about 6 mos out to the big 50

Mighty Mite was a Beast! Normally on partner carries most people avoid carrying my heavy a#%. Not Mighty Mite it felt like he got stronger on the last partner carry and he did not stop. Last person to do that carrying me was Fishwrap. #strong Great Work. Solid Chelms. Solid was Jambo,the colder it is the less clothes he wears.

This backblast is approaching the number of comments that Centurion had the day Long Distance Qed.

Actually going to complement you on a solid beatdown this a.m. Actually felt sorry for Purple Haize and Udder when I saw them wearing the Rucks after reading the Tweet about the Mud Run training. 30 Burpees OYO to start and then the Burpee ladder around the Little Avenue shopping center were really unnecessary. However, every time I thought about how I was ready for this work-out to be done I remembered what our younger brother was going through and decided this was a piece of cake (though it still sucked and it didn’t make it hurt any less).

Thanks again to all the PAX for the continued prayers for our brother Bill as he continues his battle with the brain tumor. Our family of Tar Heel alumni are thankful for the talented Doctors and nurses at Duke who are conducting the clinical trial he is in.

I hate Duke yet that hatred is a silly one having to do with a game where boys throw a leather ball through an iron hoop. Cancer took my mom and all 4 grandparents; but my dad won a battle with it. I’m praying God would give Bill victory for the good of Bill and all the Chepuls and for the glory of Jesus Christ. Thanks Abacus and Chelms for letting us come alongside you.
