21 men including one FNG (OddJob) (Confirmed spelling with Oz) gathered at Union Point on this unseasonably warm, but surprisingly dry morning. (Dora was disappointed.) After providing the meaning, mission, and disclaimer YHC kicked things off with…

Windmills x 12 IC 4CT
Hillbillies x 12 IC 4CT
CottonPickers x 12 IC 4CT
Downward Dog

We did an Indian Run to the Sudan Shriner’s parking lot where we chose partners. Partner A did as many exercises as possible while Partner B Sprints to cone 1, 1 Burpee & Return, Sprint to cone 2, 2 Burpees & Return, Sprint to Cone 3, 3 Burbee & Return. Flapjack (AKA Pancake if you are not yet fully awake :-)) until team reached 100 Merkins, 200 WWIIs, and 300 Squats.) We then did Lt. Dan to the far end, 20 Merkins, return Lunge, 20 Merkins. Upon completion we noticed two spectators who had not recently awoken and inquired if we were marines and for what we were preparing. I informed them that we were not marines and Pyro chimed in that we were preparing for life. Several invited them to join and provided the time and place, but I am skeptical we will see them post. We then moseyed back to the gazebo where we found an sloped piece of concrete which proved perfect perch to do some calf raises while looking over the water for the first signs of light. (We did 75 OYO but the angle made if feel like more.)  We then headed into the gazebo for…

Ruck It BackBlast – AMRAP

  • When: 12/31/18
  • QIC: Bitcoin
  • The Pax: Cantore, Bitcoin (QIC)

AMRAP = As Many Reps As Possible

The pull of the dreaded fartsack must have been strong this morning, as there was only a PAX of 2 at Ruck It this morning.  Cantore posted despite a lingering foot problem as well as a sliced thumb.  Remember kids, a sharp knife is better than a dull one.

Object of the morning was a full burnout for each exercise.  Our course started at the Union Point Park Gazebo, where we began with:

  • Pullups (no ruck) – AMRAP
  • Ruck to corner of S. Front St & Metcalf for Rucked Up Merkins – AMRAP
  • Ruck to Convention Center for Overhead Ruck Press – AMRAP
  • Ruck to corner of S. Front St & Metcalf for Upright Ruck Rows – AMRAP
  • Ruck to Convention Center for Ruck Bicep Curls – AMRAP
  • Ruck to Gazebo for Rucked Up Monkey Humpers – AMRAP
  • Rucked Up Plank for remaining 1.5 minutes
  • Hard Stop @ 0615

Perhaps The Fartlek had a high attendance today with Oz leading the RunFest.  Looking forward to the first post in 2019 at Bushwood.  See you there.
