During Bullard's Track workouts, one of the most dreaded exercises was the 10 Minute Drill. All the runners would line up at the end zone of the football field, and a whistle would be blown. Everyone would run to a certain point (between 20 and 70 meters away) and back. 1 minute after the first whistle was blown, the drill would be repeated. This was done 10 times, making a complete 10 minute drill (which usually turned out to be 12 or 13 minutes with Ron in charge). The MAD FIGS developed a song to start the drill off with, and sang it every day.

The 10 Minute Drill Song

It's time for the 10 minute drill
It's time to run all day
And we do the 10 minute drill
Because Ron is gay!

Jacob's Alternate Lyrics

It's time for the 10 minute drill
It's time to run all day
And we do the 10 minute drill
So we can run and play!
