At 5:15 am, the 5 core principles were laid out and we recognized 2 downrange guests, Olaf and Caviar, from F3 Greenville. We then split the group into Ruckers and non-ruckers. Bing took the ruckers away and they did what they did. As for the sane ones, we stayed to begin the beatdown.
For the warmup, Goob had the Pax perform 4 windmills in cadence, 7 SSH in cadence, and then 81 Moroccan nightclubs. Everyone was sufficiently confused at that point. Goob announced that 4-7-81 was the day he was born so today’s theme would be 40.
The Thang commenced with a very basic plan. Perform 40 of the prescribed exercise and then take a lap around the entire parking lot.
-40 superman makers (they suck)
-40 Imperial Walkers
-40 merkins (I believe this was the moment that Pudge chimed in with “40 of anything sucks”
-40 dead bugs
-40 shoulder taps
Time ran out and everyone was sad it had ended. 2 miles ran, lots of exercises performed, and the ruckers missed the celebration. We then met Roadrash in perhaps the easiest naming ever.
