Perfect Day at The Mothership…Perfect.

THE SCENE: Beautiful day at the Mothership. About 78 degrees and very few clouds in the sky. There was a nice breeze and a great energy.



Mosey’d one lap around the parking lot waiting for the Ruck-a-Beasts to arrive.

Imperial Walkers (IC) X 15

Daisy Pickers (IC) X 15

SSH (IC) X 15

Stretch what ails you for 30 seconds.

30 seconds-ish of Russian Baby Makers

30 seconds-ish of World’s Greatest Stretch


Count off into teams of 3 (after establishing teams each team will designate themselves as 1,2 or 3 within their team)

Each team was armed with at least one CMU 

There was 6- 6minute AMRAPS with 1 minute rest between rounds.

At the start-  Team member #1 mosey-ed 300meters around the parking lot.

Team Members #1 & #2 alternated 40yard sprint ladder (40yds each way) while the other team member performed the specific CMU movement assigned to the round until team member #1 completed the mosey. (At this point Team Member #2 began the 300Meter mosey while #1 & #3 alternate 40yd ladder and movement…etc.)

As time expired for each round, each member who was not on the 300meter loop  returned to base and held CMU plank until the last man mosey-ing made his way back to base (All plank-holders yelled with support and encouragement as the men mosey-ing made their way back to base as fast as possible.)

1 minute rest between rounds.

Moved onto next round movement. Team member #2 started mosey-ing in Round 2, etc.

AMRAP #1- Front Squats

AMRAP #2- Curls

AMRAP #3- Overhead Squats

AMRAP #4- Merkins on CMU

AMRAP #5- Squat thrusters

AMRAP #6- Extended CMU static holds (We didn’t do Round #6 because I thought we were out of time.)

We had a few minutes to kill so Gus, Nature Boy and Teacher’s Pet took up my slack and drove us home.

30 Flutterkicks in cadence

30 Gas Pumpers(?)

Arm circles (Not real sure, I had basically blacked out by this point.)

18 total PAX
3 FNG’s

The world promises you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness. — Pope Benedict XVI

Vulnerability. Selfishness. Comfort.
We all want to be loved and accepted. I find that the best way for me to connect with individuals is through allowing myself to be vulnerable and put myself in positions where there will be a degree of failure imminent.
It’s not all about me.
If I don’t lead, I don’t have the opportunity to make a mistake. If I don’t allow myself an opportunity to make a mistake, I take away the opportunity for another member of the group to be of service and help to teach me.
It’s not always about us succeeding but sometimes the opportunity is in our failures that we have the chance to lift each other up and teach through action.

When I allow others to see into my fear and insecurities, I immediately have produced a commonality in which brotherhood is built. To act as if we are above the things which are part of the human condition is to resist the bond of friendship.


It was a great day with great people. I love how everyone kept a watchful eye on me and were happy to jump in and help where I needed it. I enjoyed listening to everyone holler for the folks that were finishing their mosey’s. It was a tremendous experience.

I don’t know of any announcements. I don’t even speak y’alls language yet, so I have no idea what you are even talking about most of the time.
