Responsibilities of a Site Q

  1.  Be committed and be there
  2. Keep a Q rotation
  3. Bring the shovel flag

That is about what it boils down to the site Q’s responsibilities.  We got one of those down, YHC showed up to Q.  The other two, meh???


Enough on taking shots at my boy, Farva, he works non-stop at NLVFD and we appreciate his service there and in the military.  Just giving him a little hard time on the first workout while being site Q.

Chestnut made fun of YHC saying I scared everyone away.  However, Freed to Lead book says, “make it hard and they will keep showing up”.  YHC personally thinks the rain scared everyone away.

The Thang:

When Ma Bell came to Disco Trail, we couldn’t walk around the ball field in 4:00 minutes the first time.  So this time we grabbed coupons and the time limit was 5 mins.  Passed this easily, finished in 3:46 while some carried 60lb sandbags and others carried heavy KBs.

Moseyed to soccer field.  Next exercise was farmer’s carry ruck sack (fast as you can) in one hand to the end of soccer field and carry it back in the other hand.  Time cap was 1:00.  We didn’t finish this in time, took us 1:05.  So the penalty was:

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 of Flutter Kicks IC

Next exercise, Army crawl on forearms, bellies, and thighs to the other side, 110 yards.  This was brutal.

Got to the end and then we ducked crawled back.  This was even worse.  We were dying!  How did those guys do it at Selection with 60lb sandbags????

Both of these exercises took a while.  When finished, we moseyed to picnic shelter.  100 step-ups and then 100 ruck presses while laying on back.
