5 Sons of Ballantyne (“SOBs”) met at 0515 at the Vine Restaurant at the Ballantyne AO to do a little running and obstacle training. The temperature was 35 degrees, but the winds were at 15 mph which made a very chill workout. Here’s what we did:
We ran down Ballantyne Commons, east towards the far premier parking deck #2.
Run up to the 2nd level of the Premier parking deck and 5 Burpees OYO. Run up and around to the 3rd level 5 Burpees OYO, Run up to the 4th level 5 Burpees OYO, run up to the 5th level.
Line up for sprints across the deck with a variety of options of 4 – 8 foot wall jumps and run back to the starting point X 2. The options were 4 foot wall, 7 foot wall with a step for assistance or an 8 foot wall with no step. The PAX then headed down the stairs down Ballantyne Corporate Pl across the bridge and to The pond ( no official name that I know of, it’s the one with a big hill and the bridge).
At the pond, we did 5 sets of backwards run up the hill, 20 merkins, and a lap around the pond for a total of 1 mile.
Then we headed to Ballantyne commons, merkins to wait for the 6 and up and back down Ben Nevis.
It was a cold and very windy morning, but the SOBs pushed through. We covered 5.5 miles in total.
Always a pleasure leading the men in the gloom.
Spring Mud Run sign-ups aavailable soon.
Great work this morning men!
