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.
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.
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.
