Over the hills and through the woods, to Pellyn Woods we go

10 men gathered in the gloom to get the Advent season kicked off right. Despite Agony’s attire suggesting otherwise, temps were perfect. With the full on cammo pants and the only skin showing on his face, YHC does not recall seeing him the entire workout. Swiper joined us with a full 60 seconds to spare today, which resulted in one brief stretch (as opposed to exiting the car in a dead sprint). #nimble Properly disclaimed, minus enthusiasm, we were off.

The Thang:

Mosey down Carmel stopping at RTS for COP:

SSH x 25 IC

Mountain Climbers x 15 IC

Merkins x 15 IC


Mosey down Sharon View and into Pellyn Wood to the intersection at the top of the hill. Partner up.

P1 runs down Harbison and up hill on other side to the first driveway, perform the called exercise.

P2 runs down Howland and around the corner to the sharp curve sign, perform the called exercise.

Each partner return to intersection, 15 WWII style sit-ups with partner in plank.

Flapjack on the run route, repeating the above. That’s one round.

Round 1 called exercise = 25 merkins

Round 2 called exercise = 15 wide arms

Round 3 called exercise = 10 diamonds

Round 4 called exercise = 10 burpees

Mary while waiting on the six in between each round.


Mosey back to RTS and regroup for some Mary.

Bear crawl through back parking lot at RTS.

Mosey back to launch and round it out with 10 burpees.



Always a privilege to lead the PAX, especially at DMZ. The options abound and it had been awhile since YHC toured through Pellyn Woods. Apparently we should add it to the regular rotation to help Swiper and Agony save on the light bills. #canthidethemoney We got a little hill work in, a little mileage, a little core work, and a little chest work. Good enough for a Monday. Thanks to One Eye and Aquafresh for the opportunity. YHC had about 6 months to prepare for this Q due to One Eye’s impeccable Site Q organization. Looking forward to the assign-by-committee approach next year. The PAX have surely shown their ability to organize themselves with minimal supervision. Over under on Aqua’s imprompt-Q count next year?
