Before climbing ladder, ensure that both shoulders are not needed for rest of day

24 men gathered in the light-less parking lot of Charlotte Catholic. Brushback was not among them despite what YHC took yesterday as an HC. The call of the garage workout is a strong one. Here’s how the rest of us started the weekend:

The Thang

Mosey to top level of deck for COP:
– SSH x 25 IC
– Mountain Climbers x 15 IC
– Merkins x 10 IC

Mosey back to bottom of deck to start the climb.
Merkin ladder up the deck – run up 1st ramp then 20 merkins, up 2nd ramp 19 merkins, so on all the way down to 1 merkin. Only do up ramps, once at the top head down the stairs and start back up.

Regroup at top of deck for some Mary.
LBCs x 25 IC
Boone LBCs x 10 each side IC
Flutter x 30 IX
LBCs x 25 IC
Dolly x 20 IC

Mosey down 51 to entrance to greenway. Partner up for some circuit work.
P1 – 10 pullups, then squats until P2 returns
P2 – lunge walk parking lot, jog back to P1
Flapjack then Repeat-O.

Mosey back to launch for 5(ish)MOM including but not limited to LBCs, flutter, Rosalita, over unders, Russian twist.

Margo messaged late Sunday about YHC covering the Q. Considering YHC missed last week’s suckfest with nagging knee pain, there was some hesitation. Margo slyly offered to defer it to another week, which felt about like him suggesting that my M just cover. Game on Margo. The Q was mine. The good Lord blessed me with a pain-free knee, so hopefully everyone feels like we got some good work in. And apparently we covered 3 miles, which was accidental (sorry, knee). Magically, the pain seems to have shifted from knee to both shoulders. Who needs those anyway?
Thanks to Margo and Udder for the opportunity. One of the last workouts in the complete dark and also probably one of the last beanie free workouts of the season.

Converge at the Vine next Friday at 5:15am with The Brave.
Race tomorrow at Calvary to support program for disabled adults – sign-ups still open.
Joe Davis sign-up is live.
A veteran is doing 30 marathons in 30 cities in 30 days. Next Thursday is Charlotte in Freedom Park. Looking for co-running supporters. See Runstopper for details.
Pray for Margo’s dad who will have open heart surgery next Friday.

Very fitting title BT. Shoulders smoked. Enjoyed that one. Most of it anyway.

Well done Bout Time. Glad you use the term “beanie” and not “toboggan” as that is a sled. Merkin ladder in parking deck was much worse than my Merkin ladder I’m the parking lot.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
