With the shovel flag still tucked away in Radar’s garage, 15 men gathered in the parking lot of the McAlpine Elementary, eagerly awaiting another dose of #F3DayZero. Today’s workout plan was pretty simple: Run and do stuff.
Run to the Yellow Rose parking lot for COP:
Partner up based on similar speed. Form two lines (partners in opposite lines) and go in opposite directions for an Indian run race around the block (0.6 miles).
Mosey to the bottom of Baybrook Lane. Find your partner.
AYG from the bottom of Baybrook to the shopping center entrance. Do some plank work with a couple of sets of 10 civilian merkins on the Q’s cadence.
One line for Indian run up to 51 and then up 51. Stop at Carswell for some plank work and Mission Impossible with double 10 counts. Mosey from Carswell up 51 to the hill between Carswell and Elm. On your six for 20 IC flutter kicks while the Pax gathered.
Mosey back to the benches in front of the school. Find your partner.
Group mosey lap around parking lot. Jailbreak to COT.
In Army basic training, Day Zero is the worst day. And even though Radar lined us up for the Indian Run races similar to the attached video, today wasn’t quite that…but it was tough. Hard running for the duration. High heart rate exercises in between the running. Limits were found and pushed through.
Radar put his hands behind his head and called for high knees in the COP. It was like Imperial Walkers on speed. We looked ridiculous. Not sure why we had our hands behind our head…but we all shamelessly followed our Q.
Indian run races around the block, where it seems every part of it is uphill, was a smoker. Made us do the fastest Indian Run most of us have ever done…twice. Pretty sure that one will be back. At least there were no sandbags.
Been eyeing the hill on 51 between Elm and Carswell but, for fear of imminent death on 51, didn’t try it until today. That’s why we did the bear crawls and walking down…too much speed at the bottom could cause a wandering into traffic. During the hill work, a shirtless Webster did a drive by in the family SUV…threw Radar off his game, as he busted it right on his six. We were all embarrassed for him.
A solid group of men today, including a couple of site FNGs. Radar and YHC appreciate the opportunity to lead.
