Eight met ITG as the rain cleared, but the fall winds were still threatening. I wanted to throw this mental and endurance challenge as YHC, Kipling and KennyG were one week out from a tough event…. this is what the workout looked like :
- Mtn Climbers / Plank
- Don Quixote
- Abe Vagoda
Thang : 4 Laps / 4 Carries
- Lap 1 : 1600m
- Lap 2 : 1200m
- Suitcase Carry
- Lap 2 : 800m
- Rifle Carry
- Lap 2 : 400m
- BearCrawl / CrabWalk
Work until failure. When you have to stop or set your ruck down, run to start point and run back to your ruck, continue.
Ran short on time; several were beginning the rifle carry while YHC completed the BearHug and went on a mosey to collect the scattered group.
Endex : FlutterKicks.
COT : For this UniqueQ challenge, we’ve been challenged to speak on leadership. F3 provides an opportunity more than a workout group, but also opportunities to lead the group, a leadership incubator providing:
- Opportunities to lead the guys
- Opportunities to bring initiative and
- Encouragement to bring that into our own families and communities.
Three things I’ve learned:
- When falling, tuck your head and dive
- You are responsible for what happens, and what fails to happen
- If anything else fails, jst put your guys ahead of your own needs and care for them as you care for your own brother; when you make a decision with that in mind, you cannot fail.
Following the beatdown and COT, YHC, Kipling, KennyG and HackeySack added another hour for a straight ruck, and then joined the WreckCenter crew for coffeeteria. A solid morning effort
