Getting ready for the Mud Run


9 Sons of Ballantyne (“SOBs”) met at 0515 at the Vine Restaurant at the Ballantyne AO to cover some ground and climbs some walls. We covered 5.5 miles in total. Here’s what we did:

The Thang:

We ran down Ballantyne Commons, east towards the far premier parking deck #2.

Run up to the 2nd level of the Premier parking deck and 5 Burpees OYO. Run up and around to the 3rd level 5 Burpees OYO, Run up to the 4th level 5 Burpees OYO, run up to the 5th level.

Line up for sprints across the deck with a variety of options of 4 – 8 foot wall jumps and run back to the starting point X 2. The options were 4 foot wall, 7 foot wall with a step for assistance or an 8 foot wall with no step. The PAX then headed down the stairs down Ballantyne Corporate Pl to the fitness trail.

We assembled at the pull-up bars for instructions from the Q. We did the following circuit: 10 Pull-ups, 30 Merkins, 30 LBCs and 2 laps at your own pace around Lock Ness x 6 (or as many as you can get before 0615).

We finished up the last 5 minutes doing some dips, durkins, and in and outs (Wingman).



No one liked to hear about the circuit we ran this morning. I thought it was a perfect combination of running and excersizes to prepare for the spring mud run. The only thing missing was bear crawls. NEXT TIME!

Always a pleasure leading the men in the gloom.

Thanks for leading MT. Great workout to mix it up from the bootcamps and put in some solid miles.

Another solid Q for the bootcamp-style workout, one of my favorites. The circuit was strong and somewhat enjoyable. Always enjoy the deck work. Great way to get the day started. Thanks for the leadership MT.
