Thirteen of the faithful posed on a lovely December morning. There is nothing like starting the weekend with Gloom.
Mosey to track for 800m warmup.
Mosey to soccer field for COP: 20 split jumps, 10 plange merkins (hands rotated out), 15 sit-ups
Run to end of files to start Al Carmichael: run length of field with rounds of 11 reps for each exercise: merkins, LBC, Imperial walkers, SSH, burpees, split jumps
Mosey to hill by cricket field for “The Bear Went Over the Mtn”: partner up with one partner doing exercise (merkins, LBC, side lunges) while his “friend” bear crawls backwards up the hill and forward down the hill.
Mosey asphalt area inside track at front of school.
Forties with Carolina Drydocks and AirHumps.
Forties with Thrusts / Freddie Mercuries
Mosey to start
Toga realized half way through the Al Carmichael that the PAX indeed realized that each set would be 11, and their repetitive asking was just for nagging effect. Toga also let the PAX choose their poison on the exercises to make it feel more democratic. Doner Kebab made lots of friends with his choice of burpees.
The Bear Went Over the Mountain will return. I think the PAX really enjoyed the backwards bear crawls but also appreciated when Toga announced that the bear had gotten smarter and would now go forward up the and backwards #Reality.
It was great that Conspiracy joined us for the 40s and then cramped up. It must be a Marine thing #LIFO.
Do not forget the 1st Annual F3Richmond Holiday BrewThru this Wednesday, December 17, 2014 starting at Strangeways Brewing, 2277 Dabney Rd, and meandering on foot to various breweries around the area. Bring cash, a head light, and reflective gear to stay safe on the run!
