Gettin in some work

Gettin in some work

16 PAX gathered in gloom at the Vine to get their work in.  After a brief disclaimer and an alert to keep an eye out for black ice because we will be visiting areas that are shaded it was brought to my attention that everything is in the shade because the sun isn’t up.  (and we were off)

Mosey to Courtyard parking lot for warmup (all in cadence):
10 side straddle hops; 10 low slow squats; 10 imperial walkers; 10 merkins

Mosey long way around the pond to the far platform where we did 10 derkins and 10 stepups, run long way around pond to other platform for 10 incline merkins and 10 jumpups.  Repeat with 10 derkins and 10 stepups at current platform, run long way around to other platform for 10 incline merkins and 10 jumpups.

Mosey to fitness trail, count off by 3s for circuit work – group 1 does 15 dips, group 2 does 10 pull-ups, group 3 does 10 burpees; for 2 cycles through the circuit.  Plank and wait for the 6.


Mosey to upper Snyder/Lance parking lot and partner up.  One PAX runs to far wall and back while other PAX does exercise: 200 LBCs, 100 merkins, 100 squats.  Mary and wait for the 6.


Mosey to Snyder/Lance entrance & Bagpipe Hill – run to bridge, 5 burpees and back, repeat w/ 4 burpees, then 3, then 2, then 1.


Admittedly the Q needed a 10 count and then we were off again… Mosey to Premier parking deck to grab some wall and 20 presses in cadence.  Mosey back home with 2 stops on the way for plank and Mary.


With ~2 minutes left of the clock we did plank work and rendezvoused with Geraldo & Fire Hazard who were rucking.


Overall ~4.5 miles covered and lots of exercises worked in.  Great work by all the PAX.  I don’t know about anybody else but I was gassed and feeling it later.  Thanks to all for coming out and allowing me to lead.
