The PAX broke off into two groups. Ethanol led his group to the track for ________.
THANG Group 1: Diamonds Are Forever

Ethanol moved the “army of ones” to the battlefield, where the mission details were distributed. Operation “7 of Diamonds” was underway. Pax were divided into 4 groups and moved to their designated fighting positions. At each stop, we performed the designated exercise for a total of 7 reps. Once completed, the teams sprinted to the next point of the diamond. All together, we did 4 rotations, increasing the number of reps by 7 each time. There was not a lot of chatter, outside of the burpee station… However, I did get one of the most intense stare downs I have ever seen, at 70 yards, from Lowman… something about him not liking the audible to bear crawl in between stations on the last round… all in all, the beating was enjoyable.  There will be a competition, at a later date, between Point Break and Crab Cakes, to see who the fastest bear crawler in Omaha is.

Pre-Thang Group 2: String of Pearls trekking to Lake.
YHC led a group to the lake.
Mosey to the Farmers Market: Lateral Step ups (10 each leg)
Mosey to the Baseball Bleachers: 25 Dips
Mosey to the Lake: STEINL
Plank 30 Seconds | Chilcutt 30 Seconds | 10 Merkins | 10 Amazing Spiderman (IC) | 10 Merkins | Plank 30 Seconds | Chilcutt 30 Seconds | 10 Merkins | 10 Amazing Spiderman (IC) | 10 Merkins

THANG Group 2: The Core of the Matter (GRINDER)
The PAX divided into partners. Partner A ran up the hill on the North side of the lake and completed 10 Merkins at the top of the hill. Partner B started doing 100 reps of the Core Exercises. The partners completed 100 reps cumulatively. When Partner A returned from the hill he tagged out Partner B and took over core exercise.

100 LBCs | 100 Gas Pumpers | 100 Freddie Mercuries | 100 Cindy Crawford (each leg) | 100 Rosalities | 100 American Hammers | 100 Big Boy Sit Ups | 100 Flutter Kicks | 100 Low Dollys.

YHC called “Omaha” and we moseyed to shovel flag, briefly stopping near the Farmers Market for a short bear crawl.

COT:
For National Armed Services Day, Ethanol read the Soldiers Prayer.

Brave warriors,
should fate find us in battle,
May our cause be just.
May our leaders have clear vision.
May our courage not falter.
May we be triumphant an earn victory
as we show mercy to our enemies.

May our efforts bring lasting peace.
May our sacrifice be always
appreciated by those we serve.
May we return to our loved ones unharmed.
Should we be harmed, may our wounds heal.
Should we perish in the struggle,
may God embrace us and find for us
a place in His Kingdom.

Aye!

Ethanol and Wait Time
