Take to the skies for some high flying pain…

Take to the skies for some high flying pain…

One last COP with 4 Minutes of Mary

– Dolly x 30

– And the best words YHC heard all day – Recover…

The Naked Moleskin:

The Dirty MacDeuce seemed to be a #crowdpleaser with great participation of the PAX especially in keeping YHC honest at the end when O2 deprivation was creeping in and the cadence was going south.  There were some good comments on the run back to the park.  Hops mentioned he heard just the right amount of groans and Jamboree thought it was a good full body workout. 

That was all before Skywalker went intergalactic on the PAX when we took the field at the park.  Squats and Dolly were a good pairing with the 100 yd (2x) dash, but the Burpee/dash combo had even the runners in the group gasping for gloom. The final Mary COP was a painful final touch and had the PAX begging for mercy by the second “hold it” call.  #crowdpleaser

Welcome to FNG Mike Jackson (World Tour).  He really “beat it” out there today during a real “thriller”…  Ok enough with the references, but great job out there and we look forward to seeing you again in the gloom.     


– New workout (Anvil) beginning this Wednesday (6/19) 5:30 am start at Calvary Church

– Gear workout on Mondays at Elon Park and Boot Camp workout on Saturdays in Indian Trail beginning in July.  Expect to see more details on those workouts in the coming weeks.

Painful stuff brothers. Loved it. Took the pax a while to figure out how the Indian run works, but we’ll get better next time.

Yeah I was wondering when I was going to start seeing someone sprinting to the front during the Indian Runs – that was funny.
Great job to Honeybee. You will do a great job leading the upcoming workout #Foxhole.

We are developing a nice core group of DMZ pax. Enjoying getting to know you guys.

I see my suggestion to name it Irritable Bell fell on deaf ears. Still time to do the right thing.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
