The Thang

Snoop – 15 minutes

Curb – Mike Tysons X10

Ascending Curb Bear Crawls with Mike Tysons. Start at 1 and go to 10 adding a mike tyson rep on each curb. Bear Crawl across. This took a lot longer than expected, so we had to modify and remove the ascending bear crawl with BBS. I mean, 55 Mike Tysons along with all the bear crawling is quite the feat.

Crab walk around the cul-de-sac, and when you hit a cone do the number of burpees = to the cone number. 1-1 2-2….so on. If there is still time in the 15 minutes, descend burpees as well. Only a few PAX started running it back from 6 burpees before Snoop’s 15 minutes elapsed.

Kraut – 15 minutes

Coupon work time – pair up, each team has one coupon (or ruck). Partner 1 moseys across the field while partner 2 does work. If work doesn’t require coupon farmer’s carry it

The stronger the relationship you form with followers, the greater the connection you forge—and the more likely those followers will be to want to help you. Whether you’re speaking in front of a large audience or chatting in the hallway with an individual, the guidelines are the same.

….Connect with Yourself: You must know who you are and have confidence in yourself if you desire to connect with others……Focus on Them, Not Yourself: The number one problem of inexperienced speakers and ineffective leaders is that they focus on themselves…..Believe in Them: It’s one thing to communicate to people because you believe you have something of value to say. It’s another to communicate with people because you believe they have value.

“The man in the Arena”

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
