DATE: 2023-01-13 AO: -Brave Q: war_eagle PAX: One Niner, fire_hazard, soft_pretzel, Brexit, Hippie, wingman, midriff, Rousey FNGs: None COUNT: 9 WARMUP: Take off from Woody’s east on Ballantyne Commons to Ballantyne Corporate Drive. Duck into the first parking garage for COP of SSH, IW, PP, PP, merkins and stretching. THE THANG: -Head down Ballantyne Corp Drive to the spot where we cut through the fitness trail. Stop at every entrance on the right (there are 7) for 10 merkins and 10 squats. -Once all were there mosey to the rock pile at LochNess for a lifting rock. First round is 20 curls, oh presses and tricep extensions (or tricep curls per Wingman). Then partner up and grab the heaviest rock between partners for a catch me if you can around Loch Ness. P1 takes off with rock while P2 does 4 burpees. The P2 sprints to catch P1 for a flapjack, all the way around the lake. Second round was 10 squats and 10 lunges each leg with rocks then another catch me if you can around Loch Ness with 3 burpees. Third round back to 25 curls, oh presses and tri extensions with another catch me if you can with 2 burpees. -Not enough time for another round but not time to head back yet so rocks were put back. Partner back up with P1 running to one set of pull up bars and P2 running to the other set. 10 pull ups then meet in the middle for 10 handslap merkins. Flapjack and hit other set of pull up bars. -Time to head back stopping at every entrance for 10 big boi situps. Once at the garage where we had COP it was a jailbreak back to launch. MARY: T-claps to various guys who led Mary between rounds and throughout. We were a few minutes late getting back to launch…apologies from the Q #cobains. I mistimed how long it would take us to get back and probably should have left the pull ups out. But dangit YHC is determined to include pull ups in every Q when available. #bringbackthepullup ANNOUNCEMENTS: -Awesome to hear about Soft Pretzel stepping up to be the 3rd site Q of The Brave. A lot of veteran leadership at The Brave so keep an eye out for Friday mornings. -Apparently it was pointed out the average age of SOB is trending upward. We need to focus on getting FNG’s out but especially younger FNG’s before the rest of us age out (tongue in cheek sarcasm there). COT: We all have trials and tribulations for sure but ultimately remember how blessed we are. Focus on you to get yourself right mentally, physically and emotionally first so that you can help others do the same. Lean on each other.
