Last week while Grammar and I were EC rucking before his Q at BLP, he mentioned that he forgot he put his name down to Q The School Yard the following week and that he might have to find someone to take his place. His wife’s work Christmas Party was the Tuesday night before. YHC volunteered to take it because I knew I was going to be there anyway, so I might as well Q it. YHC showed up at 0435 for an EC ruck, and Stabler was already there. Panther and Patch rolled in shortly after and then we took off at 0440. We got back to the shovel flag around 0525 and there was already a decent sized crowd. 0530 hit, we circled up, and got started.

Warm Up:

  • SSH – 15 – IC
  • Good Mornings – 15 – IC
  • Arm Circles – 10 – IC – Front and Back

Tha Thang:

We moseyed to the football field and lined up in the end zone. YHC explained that I attended EB Aycock (The School Yard) in middle school and played football while I was there. YHC wore number 51 back then, so we used that number for our rep count.

  • Run to midfield – 51 merkins
  • Run to opposite end zone – 10 burpees
  • Run back to midfield – 51 squats
  • Run to the original end zone – 10 burpees

After that was completed, we ran end zone to end zone, doing 10 burpees at each end zone

Next, we moseyed to the main entrance where there benches are located. YHC wore number 11 in baseball while playing at Aycock, so we did 11’s with Dips and Step Ups

Mosey to the big rock near the school’s sign. Since Grammar was originally supposed to Q today, I wanted to do something similar to what he did the previous week… so we did the “Mini Beast”

  • Starting at the sign, we bear crawled to each tree in the treeline, stopping to do 6 Monkey Humpers at each tree. We ended at the first sidewalk (5 trees)
  • Next section, we bear crawled to each tree in the treeline, stopped to do 6 merkins at each tree. Stopping at the next sidewalk (7 trees)
  • Last section, we lunged to each tree, stopping to do 6 squats at each tree (5 trees)

After that, YHC had something else planned, but due to time… YHC had to call an audible (It will be saved for next time). So we moseyed to the wall for a round of PAX count People’s Chair (10 count each) and a round of PAX count Balls to the Wall (5 count each).

Moseyed back to the flag for some Mary

  • American Hammers
  • J-Los
  • Heels to Heaven
  • Flutterkick holds (thanks Nightshift)
  • Single leg latter toe touches (forgot the name of this one)




  • Injured PAX
  • Lexington FiA had a member get hit by a car while running. Keep her in your thoughts, and everyone be careful out there on the road
  • Pied Piper lost his Grandmother
  • Pied Piper getting injections in his back to help relieve some pain

YHC Prayed us out


  • Aquaman/String Bean co Q at The Good Fight
  • Bono has the Q at The Clydesdales
  • Aquaman movie on Friday and Belding going away dinner before hand


Thanks to Grammar and Ma Bell for the opportunity to lead this morning. I wanted to make sure we all had a good beatdown today, since I’m sure several PAX were under the impression that Grammar was going to Q. I hope that was accomplished. Until next time…

Chimi Out!
