6 Faithful and 1 FNG posted for a beatdown in the high humidity Northside Wonderland Ghetto that is…..the Punisher!
Mosey from the flags (3) to COP on the Northside of the AO.
- SSH x 20
- Don Quixote x 20
- Mountain Climbers x 20 (double count)
- Freddie Mercury x 20
Mosey to the median on Hermitage Rd heading north. There were lampposts evenly spaced heading north in the median…..the count was nine by the time we reached Bellevue Ave.
- Do 10 merkins and bear crawl to the next lamppost
- Do 15 LBC’s and lunge to the next lampost
- Rinse and repeat until you reach Bellevue Ave and plank up
Mosey down the hill past Imperial Plaza, up the hill and across the Bridge to Nowhere, and through the gate to Bryan Park.
- Run to the bottom of the first hill and team up:
- One man runs up the hill and back to the bottom while the other does alternating Booyah pushups x 10 and LBC’s x 15. Alternate when the runner reaches the bottom.
- Each man does 3 hill runs for a total team count of 6 sets
Mosey back to the shovel flag while each man rotates running ahead to the next block and then running back to the slowest runner.
For those of you that decided to ignore your alarm and stay in the fartsack, you missed an especially enjoyable morning at the Punisher. TYA made his debut appearance with his new haircut…….which involved a razor and resulted in ZERO hair. When asked the reasoning for this rash decision, TYA stated that “a friend told me that my hair looked bad”. The PAX proceeded to inform him that his bald head looked infinitely worse than his peach fuzz had looked formerly. YHC thinks that he wanted to look like Toga…..though God only knows why one would subject themselves to that kind of ridicule. Red spots that resemble the surface of Jupiter adorn this man’s illustrious crown. And the elderly Yankee that everyone loves started to second guess the recommendations that he had been given concerning his “do”. Not to worry…..it only takes a week to grow the peach fuzz back…….
Some mumble chatter could be heard with the lunges on the median, given Sunday’s BRR run. Of course, mumble chatter is ALWAYS heard when Toga and Conspiracy are around. What’s the story with these two?……is Conspiracy ever on time? I honestly can’t remember a workout when he made it there before the start. Must be a product of working for the Federales.
YHC admits to not putting a whole lot of thought into this beatdown. Sometimes leading “on the fly” results in some pretty cool workouts. The only certainty was that we were leaving the Elementary School. YHC has become convinced that some Norman Bates like person lives in the creepy house behind the school. YHC searches the windows every time we run by for a figure in the shadows. Wait……are the windows boarded up?
Bryan Park, for all of the rumors that surround this place, is quite a unique and appealing AO. There are multiple running loops, hills, soccer fields, pull-up bars……all the acoutrements that make up the ideal F3 AO. Hopefully the PAX can revisit one day.
A big welcome to Circle K (aka Michael)! His name originates from the multiple women in his family whose names start with the letter “K”.
