Lost an hour due to time change yesterday which makes the first Monday after the hardest day of the year to wake up for a beatdown.  Lingering temps in the 30’s made for even more opportunities to build mental toughness.  Pre-run with 7 other PAX and then scramble for 8 minutes in the parking lot fiddling with tabata apps for my BD…need to get better at planning Q’s!


Mosey behind the football field to the top of the lot for SSH, Hillbilly, weed picker, IC x 14.  Mosey back down the front of the lot and back to the football field.

The Thang:

Happy Pi Day!

PAX were informed that every 3 minutes 14 seconds the Q will yell “Pi!” and everyone must stop and do 3 burpees and 14 squats wherever they are.  This was the underlying theme of today’s BD.

Thang 1:

line-up on the goal line for the routine:

10 merkins at goal, bear crawl 10 yds, 10 star jumps, lunge walk 10 yards, 20 BBSU, duck walk back to the goal line.  Rinse and repeat until Q says stop.  audibled to crab walks, broad jumps and crunchy frogs after several rounds to keep it interesting.

Thang 2:

50 yard sprints.  2 rounds building up from goal line to 50 yd marker and then burn it the rest of the way.  2 rounds burning it right from the jump and then tapering down the last 50 yds.

A quick round of howling monkeys to kill some time and squeeze in 14 T-bombs IC to close it out.

In total we called Pi a total of 12 times.


Prayers for Ukraine and praises for living in safety.

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Very inspiring that 13 other men overcame a really hard morning to exercise discipline and take the red pill this morning.  Aye!
