The shovel flag was thought to have been firmly planted (but apparently not firm enough for the wind) and 35 of Area 51’s finest ventured forth in the windy gloom to make a downPAINment on the day.
Mall Cop Lead:
Run to the launch pad for COP (all in cadence): SSH x 30, Imperial Wokkas x 25, Merkins x 15, Mt Climbers x 15, Squats x 25
Run to the base of the hill at the soccer fields for:
Jacobs Ladder with increasing burpees from 1 to 7 at the top. Plank when done, Regular, left arm high, right arm high.
Run up & down the hill 5 times with squat jumps w/ knee tuck x 5 at top, merkins x 5 at the bottom. Plank when done.

Mosey over to baseball field, avoiding the ant hills.

The return of Jack Webb’s – starting with 8 push-ups / 32 arm raises and working down to 1 push-up / 4 arm raises.
Run to picnic tables past the shovel flag (someone in the pax notices it’s been blown over by the wind) and the pax dishes out verbal abuse to Mall Cop as well as punishment. More on this in the moleskin.
3 sets of 10 jump-ups / 10 decline merkins / 10 LBC’s.
Run back to start.
Another great day at The Rock as we have a strong pax of guys ranging from young 2.0s up to our war daddy Iron Horse. Welcome to our FNG’s IPTAY, Howard’s Rock, Sawyer, and Huck Finn. One would have thought that Tiger Rag posted with two Clemson names, however TR posted earlier at Stonehenge. IPTAY put forth a massive effort on his first posting and we look forward to having you back out for many more downPAINments in the gloom.
YHC thought I had firmly and securely planted the shovel flag when we first arrived on campus. However mother nature decided the wind was going to constantly blow and uprooted Old Glory during the middle of our workout. As we ran past one of our pax noticed and started yelling at YHC to drop and give them 50 merkins for punishment. However as we were running past the parking lot Skywalker noticed the railroad ties and thought it would be better punishment for YHC to throw one over my shoulders and run the rest of the way to the picnic tables and benches with it. Then the heckling commenced and YHC heard pax yelling to find some stones to throw at him before he’s crucified. Ah the love we feel and dish out to eachother! YHC thinks I would have preferred the 50 merkins.
Everyone loves it when Jack Webb shows up, but Jack Webb 2 times within 30 minutes during a workout is unsavory Donkey Kong. There was also much grumbling as DK ordered out a 20 parking spot suicide that seemed to take forever to run. I think BS stands for “Great Stuff” as this really got the O2 deprivation going!
Announcements: Let’s keep Cotton Mouth’s M and family in our prayers as she will be having surgery and recovering out in Dallas over the next several weeks. Also keep Coal Miner’s Daughter and his family in our prayers as well.
