Texas Ranger


Boxcar (AOQ), Vitamin D, Crainkbait, Texas Ranger (QIC)

The Thang:

The Village

60’s, clear

YHC showed up to the AO at 05:00 to check out the conditions and make sure that everything was in order. This being the first week and second instance of the new 05:15 start time, I wasn’t sure how many we would get today.

To my surprise, Boxcar the AOQ showed up, haven’t seen the man out in the Village in a while (but to be fair, I was also out sick for like a week or two). Crainkbait followed about 5min til the beatdown started and Vitamin D made it 4 at the one min warning. Disclaimer given and we’re off!

Mosey as a group around the perimeter of the AO (0.33 miles as Rousey the runner says) and finish at the coupon pile.

**PSA from Crainkbait** Watch out for sprinkler heads, they’ll pop up and grab you when you least expect it

The THANG – 4 Corners Escalator
Everybody grabbed a coupon and headed out to the soccer fields.

Corner 1 – 

10 Merkins – alternating hands on the block

It was at this point that I asked the group about what QSource tells us as the best way to get faster. Luckily we had BOTH 3rd F Qs/Q Source experts with us today: “It’s simple really. If you want to learn how to run faster, just find a faster man and chase him until you catch him.” – King Q1.2

With that in mind, everybody on the line! 1/4 speed sprint for the full length of the soccer field, down and back.

40 Curls – changed to Colt 45s (so 45 total)

Corner 5 – What goes up must come down, but we changed it up to keep it interesting

30 American Hammers

20 Squats with the block

10 Derkins

1/2 speed sprint, down and back
