The “New Guy” at the Maul

Today was YHC’s first trip to The Maul. 15 men, including an FNG (Earmuffs) gathered in the parking lot next to some rotten berries that had fallen from a tree above. They smelled pretty bad. 05:15 hit and off we went through the parking lot for a .30 mile warm up run.

Mosey to the front of the Movie Theatre parking lot for a Merkin Ladder. Start with 20 merkins, run across parking lot for 19 merkins, then back for 18 merkins. PAX worked down to 10 merkins and then planked and performed ab work while waiting for the six.

Mosey over to the Murder Horn (I think this is what it is called) for a Triple Nickel. We started at the top of the hill with 5 squats. Ran to the bottom for 5 jump squats then back up. Repeat 5 times.

Mosey back to the launch site for 5 burpees OYO

Thanks for the invite to lead this morning Wing Man. There is a strong group of men at The Maul and everyone pushed hard. Iron Horse broke out the Merkin Ladder at Anvil earlier this year so I figured it would be a good one for this morning. 155 Merkins in total for those of you counting. The Murder Horn was brutal. When planning the Triple Nickel I did not realize how long the hill was. Welcome FNG – Earmuffs (Eric Bradbury). Eric wore headphones to the workout, hence Earmuffs. We covered 3.2 miles this morning.

great to have you. you are welcome back anytime. And to lead even though the 5 trips on the ‘horn were terrible. I only made 4. partly due to lack of sleep. Oh, and that my shoulders hurt to run from the ladder. This is how it’s supposed to be though. #nocakewalk. #aye!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
