Bagpipe Double Header

After a slight Q mix-up, Soft Pretzel and Haggis decided to split the workout and leave the Pax wanting more.  The result was a Fast Twitch-esque running / bootcamp beat down, at slightly higher intensity of course.

The Thang:

Pretzel lead: jog out to parking lot for warm up.  25 SSH, 25 Imperial Walker, 15 merkins, 20 mountain climber.

Jog to lake wall for 15 durkins, 15 dips. Jog around lake to next wall for 15 squats, 15 step ups.

Continue around lake to next wall for 15 durkins, 15 dips. Jog around lake to next wall for 15 squats, 15 step ups.

Plank up in the grass then hit it with Jack Webbs up the ladder to 5 and back down again.

Run around the lake and plank up.

Over to Haggis: 20 merkins. Then jog to bottom of Dunreggan Brae Hill.

Plank time then 15 merkins, hold plank, 5 merkins. Sprint to top of hill.

Plank time then 15 merkins, hold plank, 5 merkins. Swift jog to bottom of hill.

Plank time then 15 merkins, hold plank, 5 merkins. Sprint to top of hill.

Plank time then 10 merkins, hold plank, 5 merkins. Recovery time with 20 flutter. Swift jog to bottom of hill.

Plank time then 15 merkins, hold plank, 5 merkins. Sprint to top of hill.

Plank time then 15 merkins, hold plank, 5 merkins. Brisk jog to bottom of hill.

Plank time then 15 merkins, hold plank, 5 merkins. Sprint to top of hill.

Plank time then 10 merkins, hold plank, 5 merkins. Recovery time with 20 dolly.

Mosey back to parking lot.

Moleskin:

– We covered 2.7 miles, and a total of 225 merkins.  Not too shabby!

– Some of the plank times were lengthy, increased on one occasion by some yap from Honey Bee.

– Excellent work from all and great to see some new faces out there.

– Thanks for the chance to lead. Frehleys Comet brings the pain next week – be ready!

Thanks for the Merkin count total Haggis. I will be deducting 25 towards my 323 quota, as I definitely did not perform all the Merkins called. Great beatdown by both Qs.

Hey, I just wanted to confirm that I understood the exercise before we continued (the 8th round of merkins confused me for a second). I should have asked for a demonstration of 100 or so reps to even the playing field with us mere mortals.

As always, great beatdown by the Pretzel and the Haggis.

Frasier, the world record holder at Muthaship (16 trips – wow), was at Fast Twitch in case the PAX want to know where the all stars work out on Tuesday.

Uh – you weren’t at Swift unless you paid someone to include you in the Bagpipe PAX so you could “Try” to get double credit.

Coordination of Q fail for listing the PAX. But can Chelms define “all stars” a little bit more clearly?

“All Stars” would be most of the PAX at Fast Twitch excluding me.
