When The Gladiator meets Cooper

AO: Gladiator

When: 01/22/2019

QIC: Mufasa

PAX (): Manchester, Scrum, Stud Finder, Scar, DC2, Spandex, Tebow, Delicious, Puddle Jumper, Postal, BlackBox, Stroller, Laces, Shrinkage

An opportunity opened  up when Zohan wasn’t able to Q his morning as a result of an injury. Not one to take a back seat, YHC jumped at the opportunity when Scar asked if anyone other than him wanted to Q. Anyone else, YHC thought – Scar’s beatdowns suck!

Conditions: Clear, 30 degrees, 2 – 3  mi / hr wind. Perfect conditions for what was to come.

Disclaimer was given and we were off.

Truth for the day: “This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.” – Psalm 118:24

Warm UP: SSH, body Builders, Imperial Walkers, Weed Pickers.

Parking Line Plank Indian Merkin Run: Each Pax on a parking line, planking while the first man does 5 merkins and then sprints to the front of the line. Continue until all the lines were consumed. PAX hungry for more and high on energy, looked forward to the next evolution.

Mosey on down to the Soccer field where the goal post had conveniently been moved from the line where the PAX would be running down.

The Cooper : A challenging 10 rounds of 3 movements each – Burpees, Squats and Merkins. Starting with 10, work your way down to 1 with running a lap of the soccer field in between.

PAX who completed started with Mary – Box Cutters, Flutter kicks, Buzz Saws, Reverse LBCs.

Time was almost up when we returned to the flag for a Manchester led 10 counts Supermans.

COT : Black Box starting Home schooling their 2.0 this week.

           Prayers for PAX not here – Brownie especially.

           Encouragement as men are to be a force for good in the world and lead well.



Axe throwing Thursday night.

Night Ruck : tonight 7:30 start at Rock Mill park – 6.1 mile planned.

Promise686 : Stroller looking to put a team together for Warrior Dash on April 13.


PAX in high spirits and wanted  to get after it this morning. 4.7 miles covered this morning including the 2 mile pre BD run. Tebow, Stroller and YHC were greeted by 3 or 4 other runners as they returned which included DC2 and BlackBox.

Laces is the rabbit this morning – another Wrestler with the same work ethic as the famed Nacho Libre.

Can’t wait to see what Laces has in store for us Thursday.

Thanks for allowing me to lead  this fine group this morning!
