After a strong baseline beatdown last week, the pax was looking forward to a more moderate workout this week. Little did we know, a Beast awaited…
Warm-up lap on the track (1/8 mi)
10 merkins leaving the track; jog to open field
COP (in cadence):
The Beast then reared its head:
on the 60 yrd, lined field, stop every 20 yds (down & back for 6 stations), and complete 6 reps of the called exercise. Plank at endline for all pax to complete and await next called exercise.
Mosey to Playground for Circuit 1:
Mosey to far baseball field for Circuit 2:
We had planned to return to the open, lined field, but it was now overtaken by youth football (expanded from only the far football field last week). We stayed put on the ball field, working from left field fence to the centerfield fence.
Jack Webb (up to 5)
By this point, YHC expected to be moving on to Mary. However, the pax had made such quick work with the planned exercises, we moseyed to the playground for a little Cindy. Same rotation as last week, except only 5 min vs 20 min.

Strong work by the pax today! YHC had planned a more moderate workout this week, after last week’s strenuous baseline with Cindy; however, the pax continued to put the pedal down, quickly blowing through the planned exercises and providing us all with quite a workout. YHC had to call for several standing 10 counts for us to catch our breaths, esp after the runs on the ball field. Jack Webb also made an appearance before the second set of runs, just to help prevent merlot spillage! Crazy!
In summary, the Ascent pax continues to push themselves, striving to better themselves physically and mentally. It’s an honor to lead such a group. Aye!
