It’s coming. I can feel it. We’ll still have a slight cold snap or two, but winter is starting to loosen it’s grip. Hopefully, the wet will ease up as well, but spring isn’t far off. At the Tank, we managed to power through January pretty strong, but February saw a significant drop off. Understandable, as February is a bit of a death march, weather-wise. That’s over now. March is here, and we kicked it off juuuuuuuuuust right (even Bunyan would call this a #GraciousBlend).

If you’re a Tankyardigan (or any member of the Swamp Rabbit PAX, for that matter), it’s time to come out of hibernation. If you’re not moving forward, you’re going backwards. Your brothers miss you and stand ready to help push you further than you’ve been before.

Here’s what went down at the Tank today:


MC x 20 IC

SSH x 20 IC

Mosey down to the playground.

Hamster Wheel

Pullups x 2 and sprint around the playground. Rinse repeato until you complete 50 pullups total

Got really quiet about a third of the way through. #Crowdpleaser #StillNeedToWorkOnMyPullups

Plank up till everybody’s done.

Mosey down to the Holler. Make a pit stop at the rock pile to pick up two rocks.

Choose wisely.

White Walker didn’t choose wisely.

Rock Burpees x 10 OYO

Lungs officially opened up

Rock Jack Webb Pyramid

Merkins on the rocks and presses with rocks up to 5 merkins/20 presses and back down.

Those presses sucked.

White Walker relieved of his poor choice by Squints.

Quick shakeout lap to get the lead out.

Rock Dan Taylor Pyramid

Goblet teabagger squats and overhead lunges up to 5/20 and back down

FNG Zebco digs leg day and starts leading the encouragement. The Force is strong with that one.

This truly sucked, but in spite of it being a true #legsmoker, the bigger challenge was maintaining grip on the rocks. Forearms were gone by the time we reached the top of the pyramid.Something else to work on. #PopeyeArms

Rocks down (much applause). Squeal comments that he thought we’d be able to drop them back off at the rock pile.

Not so fast my friend.

Rocks back up.

Rock Burpees x 10 OYO 

Squeal has no further comment

Rocks back to the pile (much applause) and mosey back up to the tennis courts.

That hill still sucks

Circle up for Mary.


Freddie Krueger (no rocks, alas, but we can keep the Golden Ration)

Up to 5 bigboys/20 Freddie Mercs IC

  • Good times and great weather.
  • Great effort from Zebco, even if he is a youngin. He’s headed up to TR once he closes on his new house, so keep an eye out for him at DawgPound
  • Great news from Squints that his mock trial team is likely to have one a wild card to the state competition
  • Prayers for our nation
  • It’s warming up, boys. Come out of hibernation. Do Hard Stuff.
