It was a balmy 54 degrees and thankfully the rain held off. YHC was worried the odd numbers would throw a wrench into his partner-work plans, but thankfully Frehley’s Comet came screeching into the lot as the clock struck 5:30. Diics given and away we went.
SSH x 25 IC
Peter Parkers x 15 IC
Hillbillys x 20 IC
Explosive Merkins x 10 civilian count
Much to the chagrin of the assembled PAX, burpees and hill-sprints on a water-logged hill were on tap first. Working in pairs, Partner 1 had to run up and down the hill 2x while partner 2 stayed behind and did burpees. Switch. Continue to alternate between burpees and running until each pair reached 100 burpees cumulatively. If a pair finished early, continue hill-sprints until all PAX complete.
Afterwards, we crossed Elm and ran to the rock pile at the base of the Murderhorn. Everyone grabbed a lifting rock, and completed 2 rounds of the following on my count:
10 Overhead Lunges (5 per side)
15 Bent Over Rows
20 Goblet Squats
Next we assembled at the base of the Murderhorn for a modified Triple Nickel of sorts:
5 Explosive Merkins at the bottom of the Horn, 5 more at the top of the Horn, 5 more at the bottom.
We then mosey-d back to launch for a quick round of sprints and bear crawls. Capped the morning off with Mary.
YHC learned an important lesson today. Promising loads of burpees in a pre-blast may have an impact on headcount the next morning. Collectively, we also learned that when doing Mary next to a pile of excrement, never lose sight of it, because you never know when the lights in the parking lot will go out, forcing you to guesstimate it’s location.
