Day 2 of the S.P.E.C.I.A.L /// After approximately 3-4 hours of sleep, teams were up and in competition again for the obstacle course. What could be worse than waking up at 4:30am, on 3 hours of sleep? Army Crawls at 4:30am after 3 hours of sleep.
Here’s an approximate list of Day 2 Activities:
2 Hour Obstacle Course
Relays (in the sand)
Relays (on the grass)
Every athlete has a different breaking point. Here’s some of what was said on the second day:
“It was the moment my alarm went off in it the morning. It was very hard. I didn’t want to be late and let my team down, but I also didn’t want to move.
“When they made my teammate redo their army crawls [relay] I was terrified [I would have to redo mine]”
“Having to do The Devil’s Beard (chain link fence crawl) twice, the second time in a sticker patch, was terrible.”
“The Plant Relay (or Caterpillar relay) was mine; I cried during the whole thing.
“The Plank Relay was the worst. I didn’t think my body would physically be able.”
“The wheel-barrow/crab walk/bear crawls relay because my wrists felt really fragile.”
