No rain, but some pain

No rain, but some pain

The threat of rain seemed to scare off some of the Anvil regulars, but 8 of us were up to the task and ready to go.  YHC was a bit under the weather, but Lorax explained that shouting exercises in cold rain was great cold therapy so that was good enough for me.  Runstopper was feeling my pain too, but that didn’t stop him from posting.  True champion. I drove around the property before the workout to see if there was any cover, but none was found so I figured we would have to brave the elements. Gave a brief disclaimer and we were off.

The Thang:

COP: IW x 15 IC / LSS x 15 IC / SSH x 15 IC / Mountain Climbers x 15 IC / Shoulder taps x 15 IC / Peter Parker x 15 IC

Moseyed to the playground for a little triple nickel: 5 pull-ups, 5 burpees (run to cones and back) 5 times

Ran to the alley of trees for a unique set of 1 lunge + 1 merkin + 1 heels to heaven, then 2+2+2, then 3+3+3 and so on until we reached the end of the alley. Did plank exercises to wait for 6.

Went to hot box and did 10 steps ups, 10 dips, 10 derkins, run to light pole and back for 3 times.  Did some wall sits.

Ran all-you-got to the rock pile for a quick set up curls, shoulder presses, and rock merkins.

Ran back to the launch site.


No announcements, but just continued prayers for Cooter and Jennings Palmer.

When YHC woke up and checked the radar, it looked like it was going to be a complete rain fest, but it turned out to be perfect weather for a workout.  Although I was sad that some of normal Pax was missing, it was nice to find a group of guys who were all not afraid of some side-straddle hops.  Heard some mumble chatter about my last Q at Anvil and the lunge pain, so I was excited to bring back some more of that.  I had no idea how high we would get to in the alley of the trees, but my guess of 15 was about right on the number.  Hammer, Lorax, and Mermaid took the lead most of the morning, but everyone brought their A game.  I really enjoyed the smaller group, which was a change for me as Q.

As always, it was a pleasure to lead this group and I’m so thankful for this fellowship.
