The tour of Charlotte Christian. Again, and again, and again…

At 5:25 the parking lot was filling up nicely.  At 5:28 it was getting almost out of hand.  5:29 the disclaimer was given (2 FNG’s) and a disappointed look across all the PAX when I let them know there would be no Side Straddle Hops.  I’m not even sure if it counts as a workout without them?  5:30 off we went before even more PAX could show up.  It’s likely Brady and an 1 or 2 more snuck in the back of the group shortly after.  Ended up with a big group of 32 PAX.

Mosey out to the track, which I am pretty sure is made of fluffy clouds and goose down.  Thanks to the parents and alumni of Charlotte Christian for their hefty contributions to the schools facilities.

COP – None

The Thang:

Burpees – 5 OYO at the turn by the gate.

Merkins – 5 OYO at next turn

Heels to Heaven – 5 OYO at far turn

Run up Grandma Mt

Squats – 5 OYO

Pull-Ups – 5 OYO

Run to concession stand and down to base of bleachers

Step-Ups – 5 OYO (each leg)

Run Up steps, around concession stand, and down steps on the other side

Dips – 5 OYO

Back to 1st Turn by the gate.

That’s one round.  Complete 4 more rounds OYO adding 5 reps to each exercise each round (10, 15, 20, and 25 reps)  Modify as needed.

Early finishers started with some planking and then head to the field for 10 yard suicide runs.  Join in the suicides as you finish.  Pays to be a winner!

Round up and mosey back to launch

Flutters x 25 IC


This was my first Q at Joust and I was too excited and needed to use as much of the campus as I could.  Grandma Mt. was too wet to run down safely so all you got was trips up.  Maybe next time we’ll just run down it, but that’s unlikely.

It’s hard to keep tabs on 32 guys running around all over the campus so shout out in the comments with relevant insights.

Skywalker seemed concerned that it would take him until 8:00 to finish the workout.  Not sure when he finished, but all pushed hard and were done and ready for the mosey back to the launch by 6:10 or so.

Mr. Brady has some sort of abdominal strain that apparently is OK as long as he sticks to running and Carolina Dry Docks.  He seemed to be doing a lot of modifying to CDD’s this morning.  Hope it gets better.

Cotton Tail, Brady, Lobster Roll, Header, and Smokey all pushing the pace at the front.  Strong work guys.  Semi-Gloss also up there most of the time, but heavy modifications on the burpees because he didn’t want to mess up his afternoon round of golf?

Dollywood brought out his younger brother, FNG Cecil (see: Lion Tattoo) and Duct Work brought out his good friend from Houston, FNG Boiler (facilities manager).  Both guys visiting from out of town and get woken up at 5am for a beat down!

Thanks to Squid for the send off
