The Thang:

The PAX launched at 0530 from the Vine Restaurant at the Ballantyne AO and headed towards the back of the corporate park.

COP – SSH X 20, IW X 15, Burpees X 5, Merkins X 20, Burpees X 5

We headed over to the small pond with a bridge. Q called run up the hill, 10 Squats at the top, 20 Merkins at the bottom, one lap around the pond and wait for the six doing LBCs X 2.

We then headed over to the 5.5 foot wall and stopped on the way for wide merkins to wait for the six. At the wall we did 11s – 10 merkins at the bottom, 1 squat at the top; 9 merkins at the bottom, 2 squats at the top; etc.

We crossed the street and headed up the hill to the bridge flutter, down the hill dollies. Then we moseyed over to the short wall beside Lock ness for Mary – Heel to heaven and Bicycles (curtesy of Puppy Love). Head to the COT.


It was a great morning in The Gloom. The guys were in great spirits and many of us enjoyed a warm cup of coffee afterwards.

It was an honor leading the men in The Gloom.
