10 Pax, 2 Starfish and a Triple Nickel

10 Pax, 2 Starfish and a Triple Nickel

10 of the region’s finest Pax gathered for another installment of Peak 51 on an unseasonably warm and humid February morning. After a quick but heartfelt disclaimer, we moseyed to the well-lit parking lot behind the church for a couple of laps and a brief COP (10 SSH and 10 IW).


Partner up (this took longer than expected due to some counting difficulties) and line up at the lower end of the lot. Partner 1 runs suicides to each light pole on the left while partner 2 merkins himself to swoleness. Flapjack. Partner 1 runs suicides while partner 2 flutters himself into oblivion. Flapjack. Partner 1 runs suicides while partner 2 performs low slow squats. Flapjack.

Next on the Weinke was a mosey to the school parking lot for a Peak 51 classic, the starfish. Today’s starfish consisted of 20 merkins, 20 LBCs, 20 Carolina dry docks, and 20 jump squats in the corners with a serving of 5 burpees in the middle. This was so crisp and refreshing the first time, YHC decided to double down and do it all again. Double starfish!

Mosey to the hill behind the baseball dugout for a triple nickel: 5 HR merkins at the top, 5 LSS at the bottom, 5 times up and down the hill. Mosey to one of the school’s outer walls for the People’s Chair with 50 air presses. Recover. Back on the wall for PC with 50 air presses. Mosey back to launch for 2 minutes of Mary, consisting of dollies in which my cadence was too slow for Slim Fast’s liking, and 25 LBCs OYO.


Strong efforts from everyone today as the conditions felt more like May than February. Great to have Snoopy back out in the gloom and equally great to meet Laces Out. This must have been The Mouth’s first ever workout without dropping a TWSS. YHC is disappointed in this fact, and expects more next time. We learned that Lois and Sensei made a new friend while visiting Benny at the hospital. During this encounter, they adopted a posture best described as Crouching Sensei, Hidden Lois. Smokey was convinced that Snoopy and Cocktail are brothers, but alas that’s not the case. However, Cocktail does have a brother in F3 who lives in Fort Mill. YHC also recalls hearing something about The Mouth’s 2.0 suffering a “wrist boner” while snowboarding. Not certain how one goes about that, but it sounds painful. There was likely more moleskin-worthy mumblechatter, but that’s all YHC can recall.


Let’s continue the awesome level of support for Benny. He’ll need our help once he’s cleared to go home.

Contact a Pax who hasn’t posted recently and encourage them to come back out to the gloom.

Thanks to Slim Fast for taking us out, and thanks to Lois and Sensei for the opportunity to lead.
