CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: YHC prayed us out, and asked for strength this week.
MOLESKIN: 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.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: YHC prayed us out and encouraged all to pray for strength this week, in anything they do.
MOLESKIN: PAX were impressed with the amount of sweat the Slippy generated in the sub-40 degree temps while clipping a ~7:15 pace. Draper was pleased that the six pickup wasn’t too far and was able to keep Avril and YHC in his sights.
ANNOUNCEMENTS: 1. 4x4x24 discussed as all are planning to participate on some level 2. INSERT
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: Skipped due to deluge and lightning.
Slippy warned YHC that the skies were threatening. YHC said we could Omaha if there was lightning. Lap 2 the skies unleashed their fury. We were too far in when the lightning started to turn around. Finished the 5 mi and parted ways quickly!
AO: Flag Pole Hill F3 DISCLAIMER & WELCOME: Given via telepathy (All PAX were veterans)
THA THANG: Four PAX took off on a DT run around the normal course.
Two PAX took off with their rucks sans mutts as it was deemed too chilly for the pooches.
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM: YHC prayed us out
MOLESKIN: YHC was proud to keep AlrightAlright in his sights for most of the run, something that is normally not the case. YHC set a new PR, to which I attribute to some R&R over Thanksgiving. AA attributed his sub-par performance to a full weeks worth of workouts and no rest, which proves that even the studs among us need rest!
AA texted me while he was clearing the mechanism asking what the plan was for the ruck. Seemed like he was interested in accelerating his rucking/baby bjorn’ing skills so told him we’d do the don’t get lapped challenge
F150 also texted me this morning while he was clearing the mechanism, but that was about taking a picture, must have needed more time to clear since he didn’t make it to MRM
Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes Sweet Baby pulled up to MRM like it ain’t no thang, PowPow was so jazzed to see him that he ditched the jogging shoes for the ruck and combined forces with the Sweetest of Babies.
Oatmeal thought he was going to run alone a la the last two Stingray vision quest rucks but Swiper came in to give him some company
The runners did some hill work so the don’t get lapped challenge wasn’t as exciting
Ruckers split up into two groups, the idiots running with rucks and the non idiots normal rucking.
Everyone finished up with 5-10 minutes to spare so we did an AMRAP of 5 Special Sauce horizontal rope pull-ups (to be Lexicon’d later), 5 LBC’s, and 5 crab cakes
Mav was pretty pissed to be tied up during the AMRAP
Oatmeal led a great COT where the PAX opened up with prayer requests
