Hand-Off to Glass Joe for Cardio nightmare!

Mosey over to the rock pile and get ‘the rock’.   Mosey on to the football field.

 Two rounds of The Devin Hester (100 yard sprints with partner 1 chasing partner 2 with the rock and then switching back). After round 1, we get a penalty for improper use of the football field by getting kicked off the field. The track is still available and a sign of pain to come! A second round of the Devin Hester on the track. 

After the beauty of the Devin Hester, we go on the road to nowhere: A hopeless road around the track leading nowhere where HB and Snowman find their happy zones of running.

 Run 1/2 the track. Plank. 10 merkins.

Run 1/2 the track. Plank. 10 dollies.

Run 1/2 the track. Plank. 10 LBCs HH-style

Run 1/2 the track. Plank. And then a not quite Peyton Manning-esque audible is called:

 Follow the leader to the Stairway to Heaven. A line of men running up stairs and then down stairs following the leader. At the bottom of the stairs, the leader peels off to the back of the line and we have a new leader. We ran each set of steps at the stadium this way. 

For a finish, someone jokingly (I think they were joking) suggested we run a circuit. That’s a great idea! Why didn’t I think of that!? Full track run in 90 seconds which would put you on pace for a six minute mile. 

Mosey ‘the rock’ back to the rock pile and continue to the flag.

Moleskin STUFF –

We did A LOT of STUFF today and Great job by everyone today!  Who knew all of you were runners! According to the app Map my Run, we ran 3.1 miles (or 5K to you still developing runners).  Great job by Double E, HH, Zip, GJ and Boonedock on bike for the 5 miler at 6AM.

DT, strong work yet again w/ the RUCK!  Congrats on the scale accomplishment of -40.  Keep it up man!  #whitheringawaytonothing

GJ, not sure where you went after the early 5 but we can only suspect that you kept moseying down Wesley Chapel headed for Taylor Glen to wake up Countertop!  #bladerunner

Snowman is starting to make it a habit of posting early 2 weeks in a row.  We used to enforce a 15 burpee penalty upon his late arrival but now a days we just do it because we like it!

I certainly can’t close w/out mentioning how we started off w/ a PAX of 11.  Hairband posted on time but felt the need to pull an Elvis and find the nearest port-A-potty stat.  #HOTPOCKET!

Strong work by all today and certainly a pleasure for the opportunity to lead such an eager and hungry PAX.

Until next time, ZIP is OUT!

Great beatdown yet again.

If Glass Joe had told me I would be running a 5k in addition to all those pain stations, I may have stayed in the fartsack. #slowasaturtlerunner

But I got through it and I digress.

Thanks for your prayers for mom, she is doing much better!

I ask for your prayers for me from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (plus possible bonus time) for the Red Light & Blue ruck I will be a willing guinea pig in next Saturday. I blame Big League Chew for getting me in this thing. I’m not joking either, pray HARD! 🙂

REMINDER: I will be on Q for the first half of Outland on 8/16.

Until next time…

While I complain about running, I know I need it. So I begrudgingly appreciate the beatdown. Slow and steady wins… um, no not wins… well, finishes the race.

At least my Q won’t involved (much)running.

Guys, no need to thank me for the running. I saw it in your smiling faces at the end. And I still hate that I’ll miss the DT Outland Virgin Q!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
