A Rocky Start to Thursday

A Rocky Start to Thursday

15 PAX gathered in the gloom for a post Cinco De Mayo celebration in downtown Waxhaw. After a proper disclaimer we moseyed to the original launch point of the Floater for:

COP: SSH x 10, 5 merkins OYO, LSS x 10, 5 merkins OYO, 15 LBCs

THE THANG:  Mosey to the Waxhaw bridge for a round of 7s. Start on one side of the bridge do 1 rep of the called exercise, run over the bridge and perform 6 reps of the called exercise, then 2x and 5x, etc. Called exercise: squats.

The original plan called for another round of 7s but an attempted Q jack by Chastain and Zinfandel required an audible.  Partner up, with one partner running over the bridge, one running in the opposite direction, around the train tracks, when the partners met up, 10 burpees. Continue running in the same direction, meet up again and to do 10 burpees. We did this for 3 rounds.

Then mosey to the front of Blue Door Deli for a Merkin Train. Lining up the PAX facing the elevated sidewalk, do a merkin then shift your hands to the left and do another merkin and continue in that pattern until we reached the end of the sidewalk.

Then mosey back to the water tower for 3 rounds of The Beast. Pick 3 spots in the gravel parking lot and at each spot perform 6 reps of the called exercise going and returning (6-6-6). This Beast was abs only: toe tap crunch, flutter, and heels to heaven.

Remain in the gravel parking lot for field of plank. Take a few steps and perform the  called plank until we make it to the end of the lot. Regular, right arm high, left arm high, elbow, 6-inches, and Makhtar N’Diaye.

Mosey back to launch for circle of Mary.


This was my recovery week after running WTF, I couldn’t think of a better way to recover than to Q a boot camp.  I was fortunate that Easy Button could provide an opportunity to lead and help me avoid a fartsack.  The weather was perfect and there are alot of gravel parking lots in downtown Waxhaw to enjoy. Good to see Beetle and Loafer stepping up to Q in the future and thank you Baio for taking us out.

As always, I am always grateful and shocked to be allowed to lead a great group of men. SYITG
