Ominous foreboding of horrible music... multiple AO closures... the holiest ruck of the year, on Good Friday- Would anyone show?  7 HC's????   Then---- BOOM! 14 PAX.  And high-quality PAX at that.  Grab your Cinder & put on your boogie shoes.


Carry cinders to the field & circle up in the middle.  Standard fair of warm ups- SSH, Weedpickers, Windmills, Imperial Walkers, Arm Circles, HIOB's.  Queue the music.

The Thang:

In addition to the routine below, we sprinkled in some burpees.  4 bands, 11 songs on the playlist, and anyone who could name the band did SSH's while the rest did 10 burpees.  Naming the song was worth 3 burpees.  ( Cinder Relays: Teams of 3; one PAX at each end & one walking between. 3 rounds of each: #1- Curls, Rifle Carry, OH Press #2- BO Rows, RC, Skull Crushers #3- AmHam w/Cind., RC, Thrusters Bataan Death March -Last man does 5 Burpees, runs to front Grip, Rip, & Roll -Around the circle -Sit by block, pick up & place on other side, roll into plank, roll onto ground sitting, repeat Playlist: Bee Gees - Night Fever Bee Gees - Jive Talkin Bee Gees - More Than a Woman KC & SSB - That's the Way KC & SSB - Boogie Shoes Abba - Does Your Mother Know Abba - Fernando Abba - Take a Chance ELO - Sweet Talkin' Woman ELO - Turn to Stone ELO - Mr. Blue Sky


Big welcome to FNG Manscape! (We don't always use cinder blocks)  Great to see many Boneyard regulars plus some refugees from nearby AO's that were closed for CrossRuck.  HAlpha Day coming up as well as May the Fourth Convergence.  Dinghy promised to wear his Princess Leia: Jabba's Slave costume.  Now that's marketing!  

Naked-Man Moleskin:

Thanks for the opportunity to lead.  It's really fun to participate and to lead- even though we meet in the gloom, this is the one of the brightest points of the day for me.  I'm better because you show up- thank you! On a personal, and hopefully encouraging note- Happy Good Friday to all, and Easter as well.  For Christians, this is the main event of all history & the fulfillment of one of the oldest known prophecies- God's curse on the serpent after the fall of creation in the Garden of Eden from its orginal, perfect state. "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”  Genesis 3:15 The serpant struck Eve's offspring on the cross, and her offspring crushed his head at the resurrection.  His light and life in each of us is our reason for hope- no better news I can think of, that's why we call it Good Friday. You guys rock, thanks for coming out this morning.
