Old school at the Peak

The thang:

Mosey to back parking lot for COP

SSH – 15
Merkins – 11 (YHC lost count)
IW – 15

Partner up – like height. 10 partner-assist pullup, 20 Merkins, 30 squats – all individual counts, then hit the track for some running.  Run until last team hits the track, then all direct return to center.  10-count. Repeato 5X

Mosey to brick outhouse for some people’s chair (0:45) and air presses (0:30 IC) X3
Mosey back to back lot
Flutter – 20
Dolly – 20
Freddy Mercury – 20
Merkin Wave
Squat Wave
Mosey to upper lot
Parker Peter – some


The humidity was over 90%, but with temperatures in the 60s, it was a great morning to forsake the fartsack and see how much O2 is needed to keep moving.  The deep gloom of the inner track has many tripping hazards, but we managed to avoid them all and knock out all 5 sets.  In hindsight, we had time for a 6th set.  But then again, if we had done 6 sets, we would have missed the fun of the merkin wave and squat wave, which started seriously enough, but – class clowns that we are – started unraveling from “up/down” to “mine” (a la gulls in Finding Nemo), to “Bud Wise Er” (a la bullfrogs in long-ago Superbowl ad).

Excellent send-off by Geordi.

YHC considers it an honor and pleasure to lead.  Thank you for the privilege.
