30 PAX sacked up for this morning’s festivities. As we were coming out cold, we started with a quick mosey up the hill to get the juices flowing. Once we made it to the house it was time to circle up for the warm-up.
B – Burpees x10 OYO
I – Imperial walkers x10
G – Good Mornings x10
B – Butt Kickers x20
R – Reverse arm circles x 15
A – Arm circles forwards x15
S – Seal Claps x 15
S – SSH x 20
As they usually hang in pairs, the PAX partnered up with like-sized partners. Mumblechatter began immediately as they knew what they were in for. Though hanging close together can keep you warm on a cold morning, groans about knees and backs began before the exercises even started.
We began with a buddy carry around the back loop. Partners changed at each speed bump to spread the work around.
Every ODD numbered speedbump (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), the PAX performed the following exercises and swapped partners for the next buddy carry:
B – Burpees x10
A – Atomic Merkins x20
L – LBCs x30
L – Lt. Dans x20
S – Scorpion Dry Docks x10
For every EVEN numbered speedbump: 5 Burpees and swap partners.
A few pairs were swaying back and forth as they made the run. It started off easy with a slightly downhill trot, but became increasingly harder towards the end as we headed back uphill. Upon returning to the house, it was reverse snow angels for the 6.
A second loop was planned, but we were beginning to sag and time was short. With the pairs now sweaty and warm, it was time to air it out with a mosey back to the parking lot where the PAX circled up for some workout themed music.
AC/DC: Big Balls – Merkin for every time you hear “ball” and Burpees for every “biggest balls of all”
Mumblechatter was overheard “this song must have been written by an 11 year old boy” and giggling was rampant.
Running short on time, we cooled down with a short Mary: Flutter Kicks: x25, J-Los: x15
Thanks to everyone today for coming for my VQ. I enjoyed the enthusiasm and effort that went into the workout as a group.
YHC decided to drive his car off the small cliff at Ellington on the way in while trying to avoid hitting a deer. Thanks to Edible Arrangements and Karamazov for doing the extra work of pushing my car back up the hill. Big balls and big hearts.
Bagger mentioned there may still be spots for the Biscuit Run, a half-marathon from Franklin to Loveless Café. Hit him up on Slack if you want to run.
