Backblast #234 Leaders leading Leaders and I owe Burpees

Thursday August 22, 2019

AO: GRCC Track

Pre-Blast:

Good Morning Gents! Who is ready to earn a rest day? I have the Q for Thursday at the track and request you bring your rucks and or coupons. Plenty of ways to earn extra credit or modify if needed. Where are my HCs?

11 PAX and a super late Q Soft Spot.

Snoop, Basic Bro, Hasselhoff, Mad Cow, Bald Eagle, Pit Boss, Little Brother, Roid Rage, Radio, DM

QIC Kraut / Soft Spot

One of the thing F3 strives to do is encourage leaders. Always leading and leading leaders. Watching for the 6th and never leaving a man where you found him. Today was a great example of that. This was not the best day for YHC. I felt prepared and ready for today before bed last night. I woke up late. I don't recall hitting the snooze but I woke up 14 minutes after the beatdown started. After quickly getting ready I was out the door. I may have left the guys stranded, but I was going to be there for the end. Showing up 30 minutes late I found the PAX performing Prison Burpees. I was glad that Kraut stepped up and covered while I was in the fart sack.

0530 The PAX stood confused and mumble chatter starting. The Q was MIA. Leaderless the PAX was a bit lost. They decided to do a lap around the track. It wouldn’t be the first time YHC has come late to a beatdown. After the lap when I was still not there, Kraut took charge.

10 Cherry Pickers with a back clap

Moving into the Thang the PAX performed Prison Burpees with block jumps from 20 Crossing the field between rounds.

(Prison Burpee - Performing starting reps, 20 Burpees, run to next point, 19 burpees and then run to the next point. Continue until you reach 0)

Most PAX made it to about 15 before the Q showed up.

I joined the men and had them circle up so I could do a very short mini plan for today.
