Trails Anyone?

Trails Anyone?

For my final Q at Blackhawk, I decided to change it up a bit.  After a solid showing for the pre-run on the trails, all PAX gathered at the launch ready to embark.  13 showed up today including new comer to SOB, Happy Meal and the reappearance of Bounty Hunter.  Welcome to Happy Meal and keep at it Bounty Hunter.  After a less than satisfactory disclaimer (as pointed out by Fire Hazard, it sounded like my first Q), we did a short mosey around the soccer field and stopped to warm-up.

Warm-up – SSH, Imperial Walker, Mountain climbers, Windmill, Low-Slow Squat, and Moroccan Night Club

The Thang

I gave some more confusing instructions before we started for the trail head.  There were 5 stations spread down the trails at which we would stop and complete exercises:  15 Burpees, 20 bear crawl strides, 20 merkins, 20 bear crawl strides, 15 burpees.  Some PAX moseyed to collect the 6 while others stayed for some plank variations.  After all PAX completed their burpees (or so I was led to believe…not fooling me Posse!), we turned around to head back out of the trails.  We stopped for some more bear crawls at the next station, followed by more merkins, 10 count in-cadence burpees, and lastly diamond merkins.

After everyone made it out of the trails alive, we moseyed to the soccer field, did a little marry, and then completed 5 sets of the following:  10 squats and 10 merkins at each end of the field with running to each end.  After 20 dips to catch our breath, we moseyed to the playground for some more fun.

Break into groups of 4 (Ringer joined in after a quick trip to the can to make one group of 5).  We had 3 stations here:  Pull-ups, diamond merkins, and Freddie Mercury.  Each group rotated through the stations with pull-ups being the timer:  sets of 8, 6, 4, 6, & 8. Finally, we finished with a couple minutes of marry.

Head to Cruzin Reubenz for breakfast!


It was tough keeping the PAX in line today as there was a lot of mubblechatter.  I was a bit bossy as noted by a few, especially at the playground.  However, all-in-all everyone worked hard today and kept up with my poor instructions pretty well.  I thought the trails were a nice change of pace compared to parking lots and fields.  Glad it turned out okay.  I am definitely going to miss posting in SOB/Indian Land and all the PAX that I have had the pleasure of meeting over the past 15 months.  I will see soon how it compares to Knoxville!  Thanks for the opportunity to Q and to everyone that has helped push me along the way.
