Moleskin –

Great work out there this morning guys. This workout sucked – no other way to describe it. I owe it completely to Combine Q – Ben Franklin – this was a slightly modified version of one of his mastermind workouts. #copyrightinfringement. It was brutal and I am completely smoked.

Any callouts or LarryBirds, put them in the comments. YHC was deep in the pain cave, suffering from O2 deprivation most of the morning and only able to see Bratwurst and Mic Check who were killing it all morning. Thanks for the motivation. #IronSharpensIron. And thanks Bratwurst for the running form feedback #TipsyQ #StraightlineChallenged.

It is always humbling and an honor to lead this great group of men. Thank you again for the opportunity. One correction – officially it wasn’t an Egyptian pyramid, but rather an Aztec pyramid. YHC will be sure to make that clearer next time.

Thank you Tiger Rag for the great send off –for keeping us ground and pointed in the right direction.

Honeybee pointed out that the Aztecs sacrificed people on top of their pyramids.

One more push of the snooze button and I would have escaped this…but alas, the accountability that is my F3 brothers brought me out. This was awful and I fought off the queasies during the 20s. I’m happy I made it out there…even happier I made it out of there.

Brutal beatdown Champagne.

In complete seriousness. I wish I had gone to Foxhole this morning. This workout looks awesome and yes guaranteed to absolutely suck, but those workouts are the ones we remember. Epic.

Doneski. Seriously, looking for it. I have no idea how Haze finished this workout after the Day Zero beat down and the 6 mile ruck on sunday. Your body has to be smoked brother.

Splinter, at some point during the 20s I was completely pain free, as I lost feeling in all my extremities or perhaps even lost consciousness.

Smoked indeed… I even followed TR and substituted some of the burpees for snatches, but that didn’t help – the pain continued.

Also, the 5 lines dedicated to Mary in the backblast were much more excruciating than they look on paper. I think I saw a satellite during the Dollies but that may have been a hallucination at that point. #O2deprivation

Nice Q brother!

Champagne, you gave a disclaimer that this one would suck even before we started and you were right. However, glad I did it as 100 burpees to start the week off will get you going. Was hoping for an audible and switch back to goblet squats and getting rid of burpees on the 2nd round of 20s.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
