CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

MOLESKIN:
YHC had plans for some bear crawling and other fun grass related exercises, but the rain made the field extremely muddy with standing water, so YHC decided to Omaha back to the basics. YHC planned to do the entire Dirty McDeuce in cadence, but quickly realized the Jump Squats would be rather difficult to do in cadence, so YHC pivoted to making those OYO.  

Some grumbling during the punishment burpees, including Sauce trying to convince YHC that Meatball felt caught up after about 4 burpees, but we did all of them. A lot of talk about where Dirtbag and Icebox were, with the assumption being traffic was keeping them from the beatdown with all the rain.

AA did some grumbling with the backwards running and the large number of squats, but YHC was feeling a leg heavy day. Overall a good day and we were able to mostly avoid the rain and mud.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Thankful for the men that got up and got better. Was a good change of pace to the week of VERY strong bootcamps.

MOLESKIN:
Rump Roast brought up the idea of rucking last night and YHC thought it was a great plan. This week has been a bootcamp beatdown day after day! We haven’t rucked much to try and prepare for TID18k so YHC decided to get in a few miles this morning. Great time for mumblechatter – at least most of the way until Rump lost his breath. Lots of chatter between Stingray and Rump Roast around intermittent fasting. YHC chose to listen because YHC has never tried fasting.

1. TID18k – March 6th

MOLESKIN:

Wow, what a salty group this morning.  Workout started very mundane with the farmer carries/abyss merkins although I did get a personal “FU” from Rump to kick start the morning as we were rounding second!  Once we transitioned to the 11’s the real fun started.  The moans and groans started almost immediately with the first round of Cusaks and it went downhill from there as YHC exacted punishment if blocks were lowered during Cusaks and after what seemed to be half the PAX dropping their coupons after the first Cusak walk, YHC added more punishment for each block that hit the ground.  Finally fed up with the pain, the Salt King of the morning, Rump Roast, began to give the PAX lessons in shot putting as he routinely heaved his coupon to get a rest from carrying it overhead.  This elicited many choice words from the PAX as the man makers began to add up.  YHC ended the pain early and we made the mosey to the tennis courts where I practiced some reverse psychology on the PAX by allowing them to vote on whether to continue using the coupons.  The vote went in favor of continuing so I allowed them to drop the coupons and we proceeded to our suicides sans coupons.

The running was foreign to most of the West Siders but they adapted to the small amount that YHC presented.  Overall, it appears the workout was a favorite…especially on the Rump Scale.

Intro/ Warm-o-Rama:
F3 Deck and running
Moseyed to the Southeast corner of the park at Turtle Creek Blvd. and Villanova St. for the first round. 
 
Rules:
PAX pics 2 cards. 1st has the exercise. 2nd card is the number of reps. 
Number card = number +10reps
Face card = 25reps
Ace’s = 100rep
Joker’s Hot = Automatic 50x Burpee’s when seen. Regardless of order
 
We did 1-2 draws at each intersection and then moseyed in between blocks. On the last block south, we started with a Bear Crawl for approx 3/4 a block. Then the last block upon getting back to the park we lunge walked. 
 
Finished by running back to the soft top with exactly 6mins left for PAX You-Call-It-Mary. 
 
YHC started it off: 
20x LBC’s DC IC

Moleskin:
Life Boat came strolling up from the dark and Slushii and I both thought for a second it was Ultra. AS he got closer we bot could tell it wasn’t but could tell neither of us knew who it was. Bleep complained the whole time how awful Coffee Park so, I decided to go run towards Caruth. At the second intersection, Bleep pulls the Joker, 50 Burpees OYO boys! He cussed me the whole rest of the morning that the “deck was loaded”! Was it tho Bleep? I guess you’ll never really know…

There was enough time for some mumble chatter this morning yet, I felt like we kept it moving and the activity level was high most of the workout. The Gambler was like a wild caged animal running between blocks with a blistering Alright Alright-ish pace. I think it’s noteworthy that Sex Panther was late to the workout and left early due to clearing the mechanism!

This was the first time that I’ve finished this WOD, it took us about 70mins total and it sucked. I remember during warm-up Dfib was chatty to the point I almost stopped to do OYO burpees but let it slide knowing he was about to see plenty of burpees! I think at the first set of burpees, Teasip knew what we were in for. Just a few minutes in Sound Machine caught on to the pattern. Within just another minute or so Meatball gave me a direct “Fuck U Rump”!  Sound machine at one point sang a Fuck You Rump cheer/fight song. I consider it a win! T-claps to everyone there this morning for getting up and getting out here! Teasip helped push the pace, TikTok with the form to watch. It’s a true beatdown and everyone agreed to push thru another 10-15mins to finish the routine strong. Way to give it away men! #HIM’s

MOLESKIN:

Started off a trio and after a victorious battle with the snooze button, Meatball joined about halfway through the workout.  Another cold morning in the snow and YHC appreciated the presence of the Lindsley Crew (Siesta was noticeably absent after I called him out the day before).  Very little mumble chatter as our Texas blood is still much too thin for this type of weather.  Speaker would have come in handy this morning!

Some talk about soreness in groins, hips and calves after the 4x4x24; focus on shifting from running to rucking in preparation for TX Independence Day.  There may have also been some chatter about attendance being light this morning, probably due to the windy conditions.  YHC also spotted a coyote before starting, which provided an extra reason to stay alert.
