Week 2 of the Gladiator Ruck BDs. After a 2-man showing last week, it was great to have some HCs the night before and an admonishment from my co-Q that the workout would take place rain or shine. Core Principle #3!

YHC awoke to the sounds of a serious thunderstorm and that 5am feeling…but fortunately it was 1:30. Back to sleep. All was quiet when I woke up for real, and a light rain started on the drive to ERP.

 

Warm-O-Rama:

Walk and talk. With an FNG present, YHC gave a full disclaimer. We also carried our rucks overhead as we walked to the pavilion near Fouts.

After walking through the ever-present puddle in front of the pavilion, we knocked out 12 weedpickers and 12 or 15 Imperial Walkers.

 

The Thang:

The workout was introduced: The “Will” Battle Buddy WOD, in honor of Will Lindsay who was killed in action in 2019.

10 rounds:

  • 10 Squats
  • 10 Mercans
  • 10 American Hammers (single)
  • 10 High Pulls

1 mile ruck, sandbag omitted

We did 5 rounds and broke for the first .5 miles, then rinse and repeat the whole thing.

A few minutes left, so at the nonexistent flag we did mini chesto suicides across the parking lot. Finished right at 0615.

COT:

We named our FNG, thanks Defcon2 for bringing him out.

Chatter building already for the Memorial Day Murph!

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Good to see more guys out here. Looking to build this further over the next few weeks and see where it goes!
