Mental block…Mountain Climber



Mental block…Mountain Climber

10 Pax should up for the unadvertised version of Joust. Great weather, specific disclaimer “please don’t smash your face today” and off we went.

The winkie called for bookend miles, but after two laps around the track, I already made the the adjustment for just half mile thinking we might get the other half on the back-end. Either way, run to the stairs and wait for instructions.

Great number of guys to keep close but have plenty of room to work. Best part of the AO is the stairs, I am not here enough to see if they get used, but this was the plan.

Warm up- everything below performed on the stairs

Here is where I almost lost the pax as I could not come up with Mountain climber…however I was finally able to spit it out

Thank you Duct Work for the take us out

Olde Moleskin

As always, thank you to the Site Q- Duct Work for letting me led today

Thank you all again for not busting your faces toady, plenty of opportunities


I always try to mix up my Q’s. Too hard not to use the stairs at this AO. Few modified which is OK. Still covered 2 miles. Hopefully you feel this one today, I challenge anyone that has the stairs to take them today

Gummy got a boo-boo.. When I got home I was saying telling my M that you got a scratch. My five yr old then chimed in as he also had a scratch and he told me he did not need a band-aid. I assume you have several!

I am not sure why I could not spit up Mtn Climbers in the begining, I kept wanting to say, Merkin…almost lost you all, thanks for staying with me

Light mumble chatter, but you guys put in the work, great job! Have a great weekend!
