The Thang:

Waverucker get the privilege and honor to ring in the new year and new decade. The pax of Waverucker have some big #CSAUP events coming up with the Bragg Heavy in February, and the Marathon in March.

YHC decided to pick up the Q today and do some miles with the speed work mixed in. The Q was written for the stadium to be used and included bleachers and circuit work.

YHC arrived at the stadium and discovered that every gate was locked. Leave it the City to do their job this one day of the year. Well time to start coming up with a revised Q, and by that I mean pulling stuff out of my @$$.

8 pax showed up which is 7 more than I was expecting. The 2 minute warning was given and Billboard started duct-taping his suicide vest to himself. We took off to Doug Shaws forgotten little brother of a field, Ashley Booth field. As we were crossing the street a white Toyota came racing towards us. All pax present said they’ll see us and slow down. The truck turned into the parking lot and Turn got out. We all realized that we had just stared death in the eye and were lucky to be alive.

Once all Pax got to the field the COP began

  • Mosey around the field
  • 20 SSH IC
  • 15 Imperial walkers IC
  • 10 Tempo squats
  • 5 Burpees OYO
  • Leg stretches

Pax then rucked up and we did a Burpee Ladder

  • Line up at the goal line do 1 burpee run to the far goal line and back
  • Do 2 burpees run to the far 10 yard line and back
  • Add one burpee and reduce 10 yards till you ran to the near 10 yard line and back

Pax did a recovery lap around the field than the pax revisited the story of John Glover. YHC gave a brief summary of his life. We then did 7 reps of the following reps to pay tribute to his 7 ships under his command

  • Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (10 count exercise with you ruck)
  • Flat Tire (wheelbarrows with derkins)
  • Hand release merkins
  • Louganis (BBSU with ruck held overhead)
  • WMD (wider arm merkins, merkins, diamond merkins)
  • Lt. Danger (right lunge, left lunge, squat, merkin)
  • Hatching Butterfly (BBSU while in a butterfly stretch position)

After this YHC really reached deep to pull this one out. YHC had pax lay down in a line head to foot. Arms were raised six inches while above their head. The pax behind them would be doing flutter kicks and the hands were the target. After 7 IC reps the pax at the front of the line would then bear crawl to the rear of the line and we would continue again until the last pax went.

Once we finished we went ofter the the bleachers. We did 20 sept ups each leg. We then did lateral step ups 20 each leg. Then 20 total calf raises

We then went back to the end zone and did the following

  • bear crawl ruck pull for 10 yards, then do 1 thruster
  • lunge while holding ruck from the 10 yard marker to the 20 yard marker, then do 2 thrusters
  • backpedal while holding ruck from the 20 yard marker to the 30 yard marker, then do 3 thrusters
  • jailbreak to the goal line
  • bear crawl ruck pull to the 10 yard line, this time the ruck had to be within arm lengths of you, do 10 BBSUs with ruck over head
  • lunge to the 20, do 20 LBCs with ruck over head
  • backpedal to the 30, do 30 pretzel crunches (15 each leg)
  • jailbreak to the goal line

Pax then did a recovery mosey to the far goal line and back. Circle up for some stretches.


Count off and name-a-ramma.

No announcements, or spoken prayer requests. YHC closed us out in prayer.


If you have not seen the changing of the guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknot in Arlington then move this to the top of your bucket list.

The honor guard there is on duty 24 hours a day, all year long. Through blizzards, hurricanes, storms, heat. They are always present.

TheĀ 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment began guarding the tomb in 1948. During the the changing of the guard the sentry coming off duty is orders to give his orders to the oncoming sentry. Those orders are “post & orders, remain as directed”, the oncoming sentry responses with “orders acknowledged”.

US like the Honor Guard at the tomb have be given the same orders day after day by God. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength, and to love others as your self”. God is not saying, if you feel like it, if the weather is nice can you please. He says do it. We must respond with Orders Acknowledge and striving to live the life God has called us to live.

During the changing of the Guard you only see three of the members, there are dozens of other members that you don’t see that are down in the barracks. These members when not walking the mat are the support staff for the sentries on duty. Welcoming them into the warmth after a cold shift, or giving them dry clothes to change into.

We too need to have a support staff. While they may not be with us during our tour in the storm they are always there welcoming us and supporting us when we need it most.

Thank you all for being my support staff. Heres to a great 2020 and beyond.

Also in case you were wondering Bling here is some information on Charles Lee. Not to be confused with Robert E. Lee.
