11 faithful posted for a dedication workout in honor of Elizabeth Pryor.
Mosey to the corner of the school near Grove and Commonwealth.
COP – quick dedication to Elizabeth Prior who passed in a tragic car accident at 2:45 PM on Monday, April 13th, just on the other corner from the PAX. Plank for moment of silence.
25 Side Straddle Hops, 20 15 Don Quixotes, 20 LBCs
Mosey to front field. 2 double sets of 11s (version 1 or 2, not sure) running the distance of the fields and using all 11 of the trees as the exercise points. First exercise is burp merks increasing from 1 to 11 at each tree. Plank at the other end of the field. Repeat burp merk back to the beginning. Second set – 1 hello dolly, 10 rosalitas, increasing/decreasing by one across the field. Plank at the other end. Repeat back across.
Mosey to the circuit track, 4 corners circuit style. Pull ups set the pace with 10, box jumps on the steps of the school, dips and derkins. two times around.
Mosey to the tennis courts for 5 minutes of bolts. 5 sets of sprints to the other end, rest, and back.
Mosey to flag – Superman – two times through acapella.
YHC’s first Q at Mary Mumford, actually first Q outside of NoToll. YHC felt moved by the story of historian Elizabeth Pryor and the details of her passing from Monday’s accident, and signed up to Q when I noticed it was still open on Tuesday. Every Thursday and Friday the RVA F3 PAX has run by the spot of senseless tragedy, a dedication felt necessary. The workouts were inspired by the time of the accident – 2 double sets of 11s, 4 corner circuit and 5 minutes of bolts. Superman, well, because Superman is awesome when sung to the sweet sounds of The Greatest American Hero. I think the tomatoes actually stopped their workout to watch this comical situation.
The other name for this workout could have been The Hijacked Q as noted before it began. Swirly had been verbally given the Q the night before due thinking the spot was still open, though it had been filled previously on the spreadsheet. YHC thanks Swirly for his gracious acceptance to give up the Q (after setting up the blocks, guess I know what’s in store his next Q) in order to keep the dedication workout in tact.
Earthday. 5K. T-shirt. This Saturday. 11:00 AM. I rest my case.
