A Working Man’s Start to the Week

Three day weekends. Holidays shared with Canada. Who needs them? Not the lucky 13 of DMZ’s finest who posted in the chilly gloom to get the full 5-day work week kicked off.

The Thang:
After a quick disclaimer and circle through the parking lot to pickup a late arrival, we headed up Carmel towards Sharon View. Stop at RTS back parking lot for COP:
SSH x 20 IC
Mountain Climbers x 20 IC
Merkins x 20 IC

Mosey out to Sharon View and head to Pellyn, where according to Hannibal, there is nothing good to be found. Having wounded the half-pipe with those remarks, we sought to make amends. Along the way, stop for 20 wide-arms IC followed by 20 flutters IC. Descend to bottom of half-pipe and commence the triple nickel: 5 burpees at the top, 5 jump squats at the bottom, 5 times. Gather for some Mary at the bottom and head back out of Pellyn.

Mosey back towards the park stopping at the same spots as the way in for CCD’s / Mary, followed by Diamonds / Mary. Cruise through the launch lot with about 15 minutes to go. No holiday half time workouts at DMZ. Continue to breezeway at C@C and grab some wall. 10 Derkins and 10 dips. Brief rest and repeat-o decreasing reps by 1. Take count down to 5 and call it. Anything less than 5 reps is only ok if there is a bench and 45 lb plates involved. #iwouldntknow

Regroup in C@C parking lot for a nice cool down of lunge walks from island to island, followed by bear crawl from island to island. Return leg featured partner wheelbarrows back to starting island. Finish with a little more Mary and head back to the park. Done.

Naked Moleskin:
Great work by the PAX today. Crowd was a little thin…possible due to the aforementioned cozy-job holiday. It’s getting cold men. Almost in the 40s this am. YHC joyfully pulled the dome cap out of the closet this morning. Thanks for noticing Hamlet #woolcap. Bushwood gets 1/2 credit for the ballcap, the other 11 of you are in serious danger of a mild head cold. Gear up. #youvebeenwarned Always fun to lead at DMZ – thanks to Bushwood for the opportunity.

A51 Southern Discomfort coming up on 10/21…advertised distance ~8-11mi. actual distance likely 15-20mi. Math is not our strong suit. Check website and twitter for details.

That hilll was so, so dark where we did the triple nickel. I didn’t like it. I wasn’t feeling well. And Semi-Gloss’ heavy panting was disconcerting, to say the least.
I’m wearing a lid next time. Great to be back at DMZ. I still love her. Miss the shovel flag though…and it was a holiday for crying out loud.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
