Intro: A lite pre-BC banter centered around the topic of Pop-Tarts and other poor food choices. The convo had absolutely nothing to do with the core focused exercises to come.
YHC saw this open Q and took it as a way to motivate himself out of a week-long slump. Due to a sore shoulder – abs, core & running were the focus.
As the PAX gathered to start, there was no flag. It had been given to a new man last week named “Second Chance” to ensure his return for a second post. At precisely 5am, he rounded the corner of the fatmhouse with flag in hand to redeem himself from the close call.
Conditions: Perfect – Low 60s & dry
COP: Warmup: TTT x10, IW x 10, DQ x 15 – In an attempt to interject something interesting, YHC called an Impreial Don Q: a 10 count combo of IW & DQ x 5 (It was just plain awkward and likely will never be seen again)

Pledge and COT
Moleskin: The difficult part of Q-ing BC is making the work tough enough for advanced men while not overpowing others. YHC is not an ‘advanced’ athlete so this challenge seems greater. During the work, some men could be overheard chatting about personal issues while at the same time, other men were grunting & straining over the multiple core sets. The overall self-evaluation – It was a solid “middle of the road” workout.
