Old Glory ramp up to Veteran’s Day


14 Faithful and 2 spirited FNG’s gathered for the latest rendition of #OldGlory at #NoToll.  It was a perfect fall morning with the right mix of gloom, fog and wet soccer fields, and the PAX hit the ground running, literally.


Mosey from the front parking lot with shovel flag in tow to the back parking lot for quick disclaimer and Old Glory recap.  Start with 1 mile run (2 laps of complex), then loops around the AO with 4 exercise stations at the corners:

Station 1: Merkins x 20

Station 2: Jump Squats x 20

Station 3: Burpees x 10

Station 4: WWII Situps x 20

Complete as many loops as possible in 20 minutes (by 6:03 today), then gather to run another mile around AO with the leader carrying Old Glory the entire way.

End with 3 MOM:

Flutter Kicks x 20

LBC’s x 28

Rosalitas x 10

Mosey back to front parking lot with Shovel Flag for COT.  YHC took us out.


Another solid performance, men!  Take a look at the numbers below to make sure 1) that I got your performance recorded correctly, and 2) to check out the improvement.  Impressive!  Big welcome to Flashdance and Chesney who performed admirably in their debut and are sure to be an immediate improvement to this motley group. Anytime you get an accomplished veteran and a Vol For Life to join your ranks, you are certain to be better off.

Many groans could be heard as YHC hoisted the flag and started the worked, and it made him happy!  YHC is starting to feel like Loose Goose, but PT benchmarks are important, men!  My next Q will have more creativity, but following the likes of Splinter and HoneyDo is a tall order.  At one point, a jubilant DK belted out the Carolina Panthers fight song.  On ode to the birthplace of the Old Glory workout, or perhaps a fantasy football victory?

Tclaps to Jville who in his inaugural Old Glory campaign pushed to 3.5 laps.  Great work! Sippy continues to blister this workout, improving steadily.  4 loops is in his reach.  At the beginning of the run, someone (DK maybe?) noticed that Sippy Cup actually put down the sippy cup as he started.  Splinter accurately acknowledged that there may have been a ripple in the force of the galaxy at that moment.  Your stats:

Normal workouts this week, but we need Q’s.  Check out the Sheets.

Q school on 11/21 with Dredd and OBT at Dogpile.  Note that this is an AO change and will be at 0700, with Q school at Bleeder’s office, where afterwards we will all get to race on the enclosed go-kart racetrack that he built there.

Pumpkin Run was a success on Saturday.  Thanks to all who participated and manned the booth.

We need to talk about a HHH.  It has been mentioned that we should do another pub run, but I forgot to mention it today.  Let’s bring it up.

Great job today, fellas.  AYE!

  1. Great job today, men! This one is always tougher than it seems, but it’s always rewarding. I’m certainly sore.

  2. Great workout…I would have sworn there was no time for Mary after today’s iteration of Old Glory… How was there time for 3 different Mary exercises?
    And yes, I commented on Sippy dropping his Sippy Cup…it still doesn’t make sense.

  3. I forgot to mention that those of you that are participating in the 5000 Merkin Challenge for November got a good jump start yesterday. I’m counting the merkins in the burpees, but will defer to the Merkin Minister for an official ruling.

  4. Great workout BT, these timed workouts always challenge everyone to push it to the max. I was gunning for 4 laps, and jettisoned the sippy to save a little bit of time. But, I didn’t make it–maybe it WAS the lack of water. Next time–

  5. Sorry couldn’t make it to NoToll this week. :/

    Cut my thumb well enough that I took a trip to the ER at about 10PM Monday night … hope to be back next week!
