Let me set the scene: It was early (0430), cold (36 degrees), and Hopper was driving circles around my truck to announce he had arrived for the pre-ruck. We knocked out a 5K.

Fast forward to 0530 and let’s get to work. A quick mosey, SSHs, and some awkward yoga-esk stretches to get warmed up.

The Thang:

100’s of air presses, LBCs, American Hammers, SSHs. Between each set we took a lap around parking lot rifle carrying the five blocks and a tire. Few moseys mixed in to recover. Five burpee penalty for the tire hitting the ground. Hopper “accidentally” dropped the tire at least 3 times.

Quick round of ring of fire (10 reps each) dips, incline merkin, decline merkin on benches.

Mosey to school entrance doing a burpee at each light pole on may back to startex.

Hopper led set of 10 burpees and then the most fubar’ed Indian run I’ve ever been a part of.

Sprint back to flag to endex. Got in 2 miles.


  • We are rebuilding Rodeo Clown one burpee at a time.
  • Hopefully all that shoulder work didn’t hurt Dixie’s shoulder recovery too bad.
  • Rest Stop is working on getting his merkin bod back.
  • Hopper loves burpees a lot….it’s weird.
  • Leaky is still waiting for Hopper to pass him on the Indian Run.
  • YHC is surprised I kept up with Rest Stop on the sprint.

Great group of HIMs defending the North at Castle Black this morning.
