Muggy Merkin Marathon



Muggy Merkin Marathon

14 PAX met near the water tower for an extremely simple beat down.  Keeping the running to a minimum, the complaining was still evident but good natured.

Warm-up near the Tack Exchange – Disclaimer and Introduction with apology to those who attended Doc’s Jack Webb beating. 

  • 20 SSH IC
  • 20 Potato Pickers IC
  • 20 Imperial Walkers IC
  • 20 Moroccan Night Clubs IC

The Thang:

  • Hit the next Block as we mosey to the school.
  • 5 T Merkins at Each Mailbox to get the blood flowing
  • Up to the Basketball courts near the school to Partner up.

 THE WORKOUT

Combine with your Partner – 100 Crab Cakes, 200 Scorpion Dry Docks, 300 LBCs, 400 Plank Jacks and 500 Merkins – while partner runs to other end of the court to complete 10 Squats

  •  Final Mosey to the start to wrap up, with Flutter pit stops.

Moleskin:

 A very impressive and hard working group all around even as the Merkins got very sloppy towards the end with many teams not quite hitting the 500 but getting very close.  Several rounds of exercises were done til failure, and the partner was there to pick them up and switch off.

Shout out Doughboy, Maple Syrup, Rubbermaid and Big10 who endured the day after experiencing Doc’s own Jack Webb Hell yesterday.  But all of them still powered through with all they had.

My partner Shake ‘n’ Bake was the man as no Form police will ever catch him not up to snuff cranking out each exercise precisely.

Beckham, Paper Jam, Dana, and Fuse (towel in hand) put it all out there with minimal complaints and just a few jabs.   Nice job powering though.

Anvil, extremely impressed with Iron and Ore.  Nice job, always good to see the 2.0s participating while Ore was running around most of us like we were standing still

Banjo – Nice to meet you sir and good job enduring a tough workout.  Thank you for making Floater your first official workout as we look forward to seeing you again.

Lastly, absolute favorite part was in the middle of squats when Rubbermaid stopped, turned to me and told me that I suck.   At the moment, I agreed with him.

Announcements: 

  • FNG Ben Carson – previously from the Mountains of WV, likes beer.  He is a Dude.  Accepted the name Banjo.  Hopefully he returns.
  • Sandlot Pallet project with Shop Dog – please connect with him if you are interested.
  • COTS (Church on the Streets) Sign Up happening. Please look on GroupMe.

Wrap up and Prayer:

 Doughboy took us out with a special mention of Austin (18-year-old, who recently suffered a heart attack) who needs our prayers.  Thank you, Anvil, for bringing this to our attention.
