The BackBlast:

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 LBC’s

-40 CDD’s

-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.
