Something Borrowed

9 PAX for a lovely morning at Gashouse. The weather was just beautiful. The temperature and humidity were perfect! That lie was even hard to type.  Anyway we didn’t stand around to long. Whoopee, who had been out rucking, had to hit the road but was going to stay for the warmup. Pledge, bye Whoopee! Let’s mosey. Off to the track we went and added in a lap for warmup.

The Thang:

So when I see things I’d like to do I take a screen shot on my phone and when I’m planning a Q I’ll glance back through these sometimes. So this one was borrowed from I think a Whoopee Q from about 2 years ago. Partner up, P1 runs one way and P2 runs the other. When you meetup do 10 booyah merkins. Keep running the same direction you were going but switch and NUR. Keep doing this until you get to zero. It was mentioned when this was done before it was at Sherwood and that track is smaller, yeah yeah whatever!

Once that was complete we tried something I borrowed from the honey badger in fort mill. Bear crawl 30 yds, turn around and broad jump back. After every 5 jumps stop and do 3 burpees. We did the style the recent record setter chose where you put your chest on the ground and hands out to the side. So this really sucked! Calls for an omaha were heard but ignored. I mean I wanted to but I had that moment of clarity that said this is why we are here. If we stop when it gets hard we won’t ever get better! So we did this for 5 rounds. Many were seen lying about the ground once we were done.

So we headed back to the wall at the Scheille for some more work. Walls sits, Mike Tyson’s, more wall sits with foot stomps and hallelujah’s. We finished off with a zombie walk and heard the bells ring as we made the turn in the parking lot.

Prayer Request

Moleskin: T-claps to all for the hard push today. I definitely would not have done that on my own. Good to see Gump drinking the koolaid. Roscoe beasted a 7 mile run EC





OK guys, I got the final call from BRR management. We will not be “officially” part of BRR, however that is not stopping us.  We still have plans for BRRuck and here is the rough draft: We will ruck similar to BRR starting approximately 115 miles out of Asheville and utilize similar (not identical) transition zones. We will basically be doing a CSAUP so there is no liability for the BRR people-there is your disclaimer-there is no one to sue and you are an idiot. That being said, it’s gonna be great. We plan to start rucking at midnight on Thursday night, September 5 and ruck in pairs (or more if we have more pax) until around lunchtime on Saturday, September 7. You will likely do 3 (or more) ruck legs and should never be alone. We will be back in Gastonia sometime late Saturday afternoon. What you need is a ruck, whatever food you want to eat/drink, and money for gas. I need a firm HC from you if interested so let me know so we can make plans.  Hope to see you then.
