Ginter Park Garden Tour….sort of


A spirited PAX, 10 strong, posted for the latest installment of #ThePunisheRVA.


Short Mosey to west schoolyard initial COP with 25 x SSHs, 25 x LBCs, 25 x Don Quixotes, and 25 x Imperial Walkers

Jog to front field for additional warmup – high knees covering the width of the school gym and back, then butt kickers across the width and back.

Jog to southeast corner of school grounds for first workout round – 10 Burpees, 20 Merkins, 30 Prisoner Squats, and 40 Flutter Kicks.

Run into Ginter Park neighborhood – to corner of Gloucester Road and Laburnum Avenue for round two – 10 two-count Mountain Climbers, 20 Carolina Dry Docks, 30 one-count Side Lunges, and 40 one-count version of Freddy Mercury.

Complete a lap south on Gloucester, west on Wilmington, and back north on Hermitage to the school grounds stopping along the way for additional rounds – alternating these exercises except replacing the Freddy Mercury with the Pole Smoker using the barricades along Wilmington.  Eight rounds total.

Following the last round, PAX performed a fly by of the one week old workout group sharing our AO.  Rolled out some Curb Crawls, Wide Grip Carolina Dry Docks, and Flutter Kicks.

Mosey to Laburnum-side parking lot for COT.


Nice morning for a tour of Northside median strips.  We got a mile of running in along with a good number of exercises.

YHC received feedback on my Don Quixote technique.  Thanks.

PAX pleaded ignorance concerning instruction for the Curb Crawls.  YHC thought instructions were presented clearly.  We’ll make sure we’re clear the next time we roll these out.

Sorry for the delayed backblast fellas.
