Monday Bear 12.12.17

0529 YHC arrives to join 6 HIMs ready to own their Monday. “Who us the Q?” Is the need to know. Being aware there was no Q signed up YHC thought of a plan on his way to the AO.

0530 mosey…
We took the long way around the facility to enter in the back gate at the 3rd corner of the track. Continue reading “Monday Bear 12.12.17”

Back-Blast: MIND GAMES – 12.04.17

When: 0530-0615
PAX: (12) Jumper, Ball Bearing, Rash, Tony Paco, Grovetucky, Ahhh, Teach, Mariah, Bootleg, Dimon, Mogul, Schembechler

Brief announcement that it’s my birthday and that we’ll do things a little different. PAX calls the cadence and YHC calls the count. Hence the Mind Games theme I’m not so good at keeping track of where we are and start over, skip numbers, start over again, etc.
SSH x (nobody knows) Grovetucky raised cadence volume to end it. Good try. No dice.
Imperial Walkers x (?)
Cotton Pickers x (?)
Teach Stretch
Peter Parkers x (?)

Mosey to steps…

My masterful plan for Mind Games chaos on the stadium steps was foiled by the ice, rats. For safety we quickly changed the script on the fly. 80yd Bear Crawl, Lunge back. Team up in groups of 3.

Each group of 3 would do relay sprints for approx. 50 YDS, take up plank while partner 2 ran back to partner 3, repeat. Nobody knew how long this would last. Approx 10+sprints ea. Move out to 100 YDS and continue approx 6 sprints ea.

Mogul’s idea previewed here. Surely we’ll see more at a later date… Indian run around the track where last 2 men fall out and do 4 burpees each then sprint to the front, repeat. We did 3 laps around the track.

COP: (again?)
Groundhog day deja vu… announcement that it’s my birthday and we’ll do things a little different… PAX is understanding the Mind Games now. They do cadence…
SSH x (?)
Merkins x (?)
Peter Parkers x (?)
8 Count Body Builders x (? – a lot)

Mosey back toward flag circle up for one last COP following the announcement again… pax does cadence on a chaotic count of flutterkicks x (?)

AYG to flag. Jumper blazed the way… Glad I got to Q for my 40th birthday. Appropriately feeling a little squeaky from a weekend GORUCK Tough, or maybe my new old age. Heck, they even sang to me. I was just glad things came together because at 5:30 there were only about 4 of us there until the others poured in during the mosey. Thanks for making it out guys.

YHC: Mariah

10.25 back-blast. Winter is coming…

Mariah, grovetucky, 3:16, jumper, crossgrain, guppie, stickman(NC), slash, ball bearing, Tony Packo, Ahh, Francis, Dimon were our supporting casts today!

This morning was chilly, it was gloomy, it was just not easy to wake up. But some of the strongest men I know did. We gathered around The American Flag as the wind blew it in all its glory and had some mumble chatter. This was the calm before the storm.

0530 snuck up on us and the Q gave our F3 disclaimer stating he was not a professional by any means of the word and that it was time to make leaders out of the men who came. Continue reading “10.25 back-blast. Winter is coming…”
