6 strong and faithful showed up for Richmond’s version of Old Glory at NoToll. It was 77 at 0530 as the sun started to come up, a perfect start to the day.
Mosey from shovel flag to back parking lot for brief explanation of Old Glory. Start with a 1 mile run around the entire soccer field complex (2 laps). Then, loops of 4 stations at the corners of the AO:
Station 1: 20 x Merkins
Station 2: 20 x Jump Squats
Station 3: 10 x Burpees
Station 4: 20 x WWII Situps
Complete as many loops as possible before 6 am, then gather together for another 1 mile run around the complex. A quick 2 MOM with 15x Russian Twists and 25x LBC. Return to Shovel Flag for COT.
YHC was looking for a good “You vs. You” workout that we could use to track our progress and took a page from the boys at Tradition in Charlotte-MECA (Thanks, boys!). “Old Glory” proved to be a fitting test, and I look forward to seeing our progress in the months to come. I’ve heard many of the PAX comment that we are noticeably faster and stronger lately, and hopefully we will see that as we measure our progress. We missed our fellow brothers who were getting beat down on the trails this morning by Sippy Cup in prep for the BRR and look forward to the next time we get to share the PAIN.
Wilson was back with us after some R and R in the “dry heat” of Arizona. Welcome back! Thankfully, Wilson’s Wife was there to keep him in check and exercising. Honey-Do continues to post with regularity and determined resolve (and also made the suggestion to finish with Russian Twists (AYE!!)), and it was great to workout with Ricky Bobby again. Lockjaw kept the pace on the last mile, and I learned what it’s like to chase a giraffe across the savanna as Splinter kept a “mean, mean stride” and finished strong. Great job, men!
In keeping with theme of measuring progress that the fellas from Tradition started, I have posted below the number of cycles each of us completed. Hopefully, when we do this again in a month, we will see some more improvement. It’s important to state that it’s not a race against anyone but YOURSELF with the goal of getting better, faster, stronger.
