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.

ANNOUNCEMENTS:
1. TID18k – March 6th
2. Grow Ruck – April

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:

The Gambler – 15x Box Top Cutters

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!

MOLESKIN:

It’s Groundhog Day so what could we do over and over and over…Much mumble chatter about YHC not caring about shoulders today.  Perhaps I should have warned PAX to take care of their Starbucky shoulders.  Following the shoulder comments were the complaints of back pain.  I can provide the number of a good sports chiro!  Tclaps to Slushii for being prepared with an impromptu speaker to aid with the monotony.  YHC took pity on PAX with 10 minutes remaining and moved to some Mary since PAX were also upset YHC seemed to neglect core exercises today.  PAX were relieved until they figured out YHC was serious about holding feet at 6”.  Penalty man makers for lazy feet elicited what may be a record 5-6 “F U’s” on the Rumpometer.  I was humbled with such recognition and felt I should thank the Academy and everyone that supported me in my Q journey!

We all survived, had coffee and as far as I can tell, this week’s batch didn’t prep Slushii for a colonoscopy!

It’s my son’s (F3 Name- Meow) birthday and wanted to honor his big day and entering the  teenage years with a “manly” workout.  Not a ton of mumblechatter other than some grumbling due to the myraid of sprints and hatred of the Wolverine (Burpee – Merkin, peter, merkin, parker, merkin, jump up).  Also Sound Machine has all the toys and the glow in the dark football was fun to throw around pre and post beatdown.  Was some discussion of  Bleep skipping and Rump Roast’s fartsacking after a HC (weird to see Slushii solo in the suburu). I guess he didn’t want a perfect week afterall! Slushii is still on target.  Overall great day, chilly day but the wind sprints made us forget about it quickly.

Moleskin:
Right off the bat, YHC heard mumble chatter about the amount of running. To be clear, while I’m not great at running, and it’s not my favorite thing to do… I’m trying to get better at it and believe I do a fair amount of running at most of my Q’s.  SO don’t be surprised when you show up to a Rump Roast beatdown and there’s running.  I asked the DJ Icebox for a “war” playlist and have to admit I should have elaborated what my “vision” was because the playlist was a turd floater for sure! 

There was lots of talk about Special Sauce not being there. Classified was so worried that it wasn’t like Sauce, he believed we should send a search party. “I don’t expect this from him”, Classified exclaimed at one point. Overall it was a great morning and start to the weekend with a group of guys I could not be more proud to be a part of.

Pretty normal day for the most part, I hear Dfib comment on the lap that we’d already done more running than he expected. Then the rain started and while it was fairly steady it wasn’t too bad until the Big Boi Sit-ups. Not only was there water standing on the tennis court by that time it start coming down in buckets. Everyone seemed to have a good time and I heard Slushii report he got 3mi. I got 2.72 so a pretty good day.

MOLESKIN:
Was hoping for a #subarumafia ride this morning but Rump Roast had some dental work done yesterday and decided it was best he take the morning off. We had a injured Alright Alright which created much more mumblechatter as he was with the group and not way ahead like normal. We all learned who is great at counting in cadence and then there is F150 doing RedBull T Merkins (#tlclaps to the speed). Was hoping to stay around the 2mile mark which we did for the day. Bleep chose sprints as the last exercise which must have worn him out because he caught a nap in on the way home this morning. F150 blew by everyone and looked like he was coming out of the gates at Churchill Downs. Agnes caught the normal amount of chatter about something he loves to talk about (IYKYK). Stingray averaged about 6yrds/punt and that is being generous. YHC had some technical difficulties with the speaker….because it died half way through the first song. Need some help from DDDDDJJJJJJ Icebox. PAX all determined that was probably the best part of the morning so they didn’t have to listen to YHC HaaBaa Playlist.
