Indian Run to SVHS track

Plank Relay:  Plank it up in positions around the track @ 12, 3, 6 & 9 (Three groups of two, one group of 4 and one lone PAX.  Group 1 sprints qtr track to group 2, Group 1 assumes plank, group 2 sprints to group3 etc.  Keep on truckin until you reach your starting positions.  This was supposed to be a dedication to the 4 hour plank record setter.  However, the PAX put it all on the line and the sprints were a smokfest with planking as recovery in between.  Well done gents!

Mosey over to the field house for a little wall work.

  • Peoples Chair
  • Balls to the Wall (Grapes over coconut)
  • Peoples Chair w/squats against the wall (this was a quad burner and a real crowd pleaser. Going into the WIB fur sure)
  • Caroline Dry Docks

Line it up on the practice field, shoulder to shoulder.  Firs man turns, look your buddy in the eye and walk the plank end to end. X2

“The Late Show” on Q

Mosey toward the elem school. Stop along the way for a EE favorite: seal team sit-ups for (10) count. Continue the mosey and regroup at the buses for some cheese wheel low shuffles. Then onward to the elem playground.

Partner up. P1 runs a lap, stopping 1/2 way for (10) ea leg lunges. P2 hangs out for a painful triplet of (4) supine rows or pull-ups, (5) good form push-ups… Sorry “merkins”, (6) low slow squats. Repeat triplet till P1 returns.

Flapjack, rinse & repeat.

Mosey/Indian run back to the shovel flag. Stop along the way for some dry docks and dips in the courtyard…. And right about here Snowman busted loose!! A man of few words for the last two months, his hilarious chatter had been picking up as the workout progressed. After the courtyard dips he started shouting inspirational American-Flag-Football-Movie quotes and Choo-Chooed to the shovel flag like a man possessed, leaving the rest of us to wonder in amusement and do our best to keep up.

Moleskin:  A solid workout today. My thoughts on the ride to F2 McD’s drifted toward the story of the Widow and her offering (mark 12.41). I saw the look on faces today as we pounded it out today and I gotta say…. we weren’t just going through the motions. We were giving till it hurt and then some.

Sorry I missed it, I think. I was getting an education with Glass Joe on being a site Q and other leadership challenges which was pretty cool. All to help us grow this Union County region, it’s getting exciting!

At this point I have the lone Q for Saturday but the first half will be a little different with participation from all. Just be there!

Thanks CT and LS for leading a tough one. It seems like the workouts get tougher each week. But recovery time after is so much better than it was 6 months ago, which is progress! wOOt!

I don’t know what Snow Man was chugging but I obviously need some of it! Good to see the enthusiasm and laughs are always good except when I’m trying to do rail slides or ab work.

Don’t forget about the 5k THIS coming Sunday at Hopewell Baptist if interested:

Right now it looks like Donut Hole, Double E, Glass Joe and I are running. Hair Band??? 🙂

Ah, bring your wife along and you can run together! No excuses!

If you don’t show, I’ll send Snow Man to your house to sing to you through the night. 😉

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
