Where did Fall go???

13 of SOBs finest decided to ignore the warnings of lots of running and brave the cold to start their week off right at Foxhole.

YHC was almost late due to not figuring into time to get to the AO the time needed to defrost the car. Its only Nov 3rd for crying out loud.

No FNGs, so abbreviated disclaimer given.

YHC had two workouts for this morning, one that went with the preblast Sunday that warned of running and another that was 0.0 but lots of KB work. Deciding to leave it up to the Pax, TR was given a choice – pick the hand with the rock – 0.0 workout, hand without – lots of running. Choice was the hand without so off we went.

The Thang:

* = in cadence
SSH x 20*
IW x 15*
MC x 15*
Prying Goblet squats x 5 – great for stretching out the hips, quats and calves (It will be needed later)
Enough warm-up time for the main event:

Mosey to the endline of the soccer field with bells in hand.

5 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 100 yrd
10 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 200 yrd
15 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 300 yrd
20 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 400 yrd
25 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 500 yrd
20 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 400 yrd
15 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 300 yrd
10 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 200 yrd
5 x Burpees, Two Hand Swings, and Goblet Squats – AYG 100 yrd

Finished with just enough time to mosey to parking lot for COT.

For those keeping score lots of work done today – 125 burpees, 125 2H swings, 125 Goblet Squats and 2500 yards AYG (roughly 1.5 miles)

Solid work by everyone this am. YHC brought this workout back out after shelving it for the better part of a year. Last time it was considerably warmer. Today, however, not the case but clearly everyone is getting stronger. Not much mumblechatter as most (YHC was) were in O2 deprivation most of the time.

Its an honor and privleage to have the chance to lead this group.
Thanks for the chance to lead.

That looks terrible. Would like to borrow it, but not sure if I could finish it with dignity.

The last time I posted at one of your Foxhole Q’s, we did the same workout. I read your name as the scheduled Q in the weekly email and thought to myself “There’s no way he’s going to make us do all those sprints again”. I was wrong.
