Northeast Tennessee

A Legtastic Day to Get Motivated!

Northeast Tennessee Johnson City Iron Horse (Founders Park)

The chilliest morning yet (that YHC has posted for) didn’t scare 19 Pax away. YHC was thankful to be the Q for the day, otherwise YHC would have been fartsacking. YHC knew that 8 Pax would double down and immediately conduct a 5k ruck, so YHC graciously planned a Q that would ensure all legs were nice and warm.

YHC introduced a new exercise called The Motivator to the Pax. It consists of side-straddle-hops, half-jacks, side-straddles, and hops. Whatever number is chosen, for example 7, the Pax conduct 7 of each exercise, then 6, 5, 4, and so on down through 1.

Before we got started, an unnamed Pax had difficulty posting the shovel flag. YHC quoted an Army saying, “You have to be 10% smarter than the equipment you work with.”

Conditions: A very balmy 37
