Hernia…what hernia?

PAX; Gator Bait, Gambit, Diapers, Big Easy, Dabo, Peaches, Chum Bucket, Hard Hat, Joker, 12 Gauge, Stones, Bartman, Swanson, Buckeye, Hostillo, Flea (QIC)

Conditions; 60 and clear with little to no sand gnats

Disclaimer; (at the shovel flag). Talked about how I don’t know what I’m doing…and I may have a hernia repair gone bad…usual stuff

Warm up;

Run to the corner, 25 TTT IC

Run to a dark alley, 25 forward arms circle IC

Run back to the corner, 25 backwards arm circles IC then 20 air squats with arms still raised IC (looked really cool BTW)

Run back to the shovel flag for…

The Thang;

PAX circled up in plank- each took turns cranking out 10 merkins while the rest stayed in plank. I am glad I went first and almost felt sorry for Swanson going last…almost

Indian run to COTC and line up at the brick wall

11’s at the wall; dips/merkins (10/1, 9/2, 8/3, 7/4, 6/5, 5/6, 4/7, 3/8, 2/9, 1/10) and back the other way (1/10, 2/9, 3/8, 4/7, 5/6, 6/5, 7/4, 8/3, 9/2, 10/1). That was for you Big Easy

Some PAX finished early, so I decided the old “plank OYO waiting for the 6” was too easy. I have instituted the new “burpees OYO waiting for the 6”. MUCH BETTER!

20 step ups- right foot on the wall (it’s supposed to stay on the wall)

Al Gore for the 6

20 step ups- left foot on the wall (it’s supposed to stay on the wall)

Al Gore for the 6

I am going to have to remove a few rows of bricks on that darn wall so all PAX can keep their foot on it. Lots of mumble chatter during this

I decided we need a break from all this work, so we laid around and did 100 LBC’s OYO

Some PAX finished up early…guess what? BURPEES OYO WAITING FOR THE 6!

I didn’t want anyone feeling left out, so once the 6 was finished laying around doing LBC’s- we did Burpees for 3 minutes OYO. More mumble chatter.

Line up for Indian run back to the shovel flag, but wait, there’s more…

25 SSH IC. This was really hard to count after 3+ minutes of Burpees.

Now let’s Indian Run back to the shovel flag for BOM



Announcements; F2 lunch at Bluffton BBQ on Thursday at noon. Ambien with his VQ at the Yacht Club tomorrow. Dabo with his VQ (?) at the Buck tomorrow. Swanson is doing a BBQ fundraiser for HH Pres youth group- buy some cue from him! $15/pound

Prayers requests; prayers go out and up to Chopper, who passed away from substance abuse recently. The things in this life overwhelmed him.


Moleskin; every once and a while you just gotta get up before the crack of dawn, leave your cell phone in the car, gather around the shovel flag with a bunch of other dudes, and push that rock. Sometimes you lead, other times you follow. Sometimes you help others push thru, other times you receive the help. Sometimes it’s easy, other times it hard. It’s always worth it.


Flea out!
