Warm-up (in place):
Mosey to corner of Summerlin & Wessynton for warm-up part 2:
Mosey to corner of Summerlin & Abbottswood for the Summerlin Suicide. Run to each speedbump (there are 3) and back, and then a fourth point back up at Rea Rd. At each speedbump (and at Rea), 10 merkins. At the start, 10 squats each time. #mileage
Regroup and mosey one block west to Abbotswood & Brynwood. Hopper led Mary to allow the PAX to catch their breath.
Down Brynwood in the direction of home, stopping at each street light for Heels to Heaven.
Plank at Brynwood and Wessynton to collect the six, followed by lung walk, bear crawl and backwards run down Wessynton to get back to Summerlin.
Mosey back to school and to the wall. Partner up. Partner 1 runs a lap around the parking lot, while Partner B does wall sits, ending in dips.
Finish with Mary (Dollies, Rosalitas) before the mutiny. Done.
The usual great Hydra group was in full force, including the refusenik trifecta, as well as a strong Flattenin’ the Hills representation #BrotherhoodBonds #KottersMargo. It’s pretty easy to tell with this group how your workout is going. When the chatter is high and NOBODY (among 23 PAX) is counting, you know you’ve lost them. That happened on exercise #2. When they start complaining (e.g., during the Summerlin Suicide), you know you’re pretty much in the zone.
Unfortunately, on the last trip down Summerlin during said Suicide, YHC caught an edge of the asphalt and took a pretty big spill, twisting an ankle pretty good. They say ankles never really heel fully (#HighSchoolGlory), and I can affirm that conclusion. I appreciate Hopper jumping in and leading the next 10 minutes or so, and the PAX for their genuine concern. Tighten the laces, and press on. There was an 80’s movie reference (in the O2 deprivation accompanies by pretty sharp pain, I don’t remember) upon retaking the Q, but it was swift and with authority. I think Hopper had had enough of the PAX’s mumble-chatter in those 10 minutes, anyway.
We wrapped up fairly uneventfully, until the end, where there was pretty much a mutiny to end the workout. Maybe I stopped my watch immediately after the fall and thus I was behind? I don’t know, but the PAX who finished strong got their money’s worth.
Pleasure to lead this morning, what may be the best site in A51. Thanks to Sprockets for the takeout, as well as Sprockets and Gummy for the opportunity to Q this group of men (and lucky for you that I disclaimed myself before the workout).
