A Safe Place

A Safe Place

13 Pax gathered in the well lit Gloom of Matthews Elementary for the second November 2018 edition of Peak 51.

YHC arrived at 0516, just in time to see the Spartans off and hoping to secretly transport the Weinke to its destination in the lower parking lot. Much to my chagrin, Bernie clocked in earlier and caught me in the act. Keeping a massive Weinke under wraps is no easy feat.

We moseyed to the parking lot behind the school, where the Pax caught a glimpse of the magical Weinke board and its 12 exercises. The concept was equal parts simple and terrible. Perform 15 reps of exercise 1, run a lap around the track (watch out for the mud on the back stretch!), consult the Weinke for the next exercise, perform 15 reps of exercise 1, then 15 reps of exercise 2, run a lap, and so forth. Exercises were as follows:

  1. LBC
  2. Merkin
  3. Heels to Heaven
  4. Carolina dry dock
  5. Low slow squat
  6. Flutter
  7. Lunge
  8. Diamond merkin
  9. American hammer
  10. Mountain climber
  11. Burpee
  12. Smurf jack

Witch Doctor completed the entire Weinke, and the remaining Pax ended somewhere around 9, 10, or 11. Mumblechatter was low initially, but picked up as we embraced the suck and put in a solid 45 minutes of work. A great time was had by all.

Couple of announcements this morning:

  • Vagabond CSAUP, Saturday Nov.10.
  • Speed for Need: Let Them Soar 5K right here in Matthews, on Saturday Nov. 10.

Speaking of big Weinkes, there are only 8 days remaining to gift yourself (or have your M gift you) with a winter Area 51 gear order!
