Scout’s Run / The Gambler

The Scene: sweet spot…brisk 40 degrees. My favorite conditions.

Welcome & disclaimer


  • SSH x30
  • Daisy Pickers x10
  • Imperial Walkers x10
  • Hillbillies x10
  • Polka Stretch x10
  • Arm Circles x20
  • Stretch before we leave the parking lot area.

The thang

  • Scout’s Run (Pax in front sprints 15-20 yards and then goes to back of the line) to the parking lot by the ramp.
  • Split into two groups, 1 group scout runs up the ramp and back down while other group does AMRAP Dive Bombers. Flapjack
  • Scout’s Run to the Skateboard Park
  • 7’s (7 reps of everything, then 6, …. then 1
    • Crab legs (or kicks or whatever they are) 2 is 1
    • O’s (Make an O with legs hanging over the edge of the pool)
    • Box Jumps (or step-ups as modifier)
  • Scout’s Run back to STARTEX


  • LBC’s x20
  • March of the Penguins x10?
  • Captain Thor (1 BBSU:4 American Hammers) up to 5 and back down.
  • Ring of Fire (Hold plank and do Merkins sequentially) up to 4
  • (Mistakenly recovered, still had 1 minute left)
  • LBC’s OYO-AMRAP until 6:15am.

COT: Scout’s Run was symbolic. When you’re out front, sprint a ways then next man up! YHC is stepping aside as Spirit Stick (a true HIM) is stepping into the 2ndF Q Role. F3 is led in a rotating fashion across all roles! Tentpole roles are hoping to rotate out at some point in 2021 as should AOQ roles. Step up & when it’s time. Step aside!

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run

Count: 10

Moleskin: We didn’t actually sing Kenny Rogers (RIP). But we should have.
