Merkins in the Mist


14 gathered in the mist to experience a few minutes of merkin glory.  Here’s how it went down:

– SSH x 25
– Arm Circles x 15 forward & backward
– Russian Soldiers x 20
– Copperhead Squats x 15

The Thang:
– Mosey to soccer field for Merkin Ladder. Run width of soccer field and commence ladder. Start at 20 and work your way back down to 1. 210 total.
– Mosey to tennis courts for triple check. Lt. Dans, Box Cutters, run around tennis court
– Mosey to basketball court for Escalating 4 Corners of Mary
– Corner 1. 10 WWI Situps. 11 second lap, 12 third lap.
– Corner 2. 20 Russian Twists. 22 second lap, 24 third lap.
– Corner 3. 30 Flutter Kicks. 33 second lap, 36 third lap.
– Corner 4. 40 LBCs. 44 second lap, 48 third lap.
– Circle up for criss cross ring of fire. 10 merkins clockwise and counter-clockwise.

Nice work to everyone on the merkin ladder. YHC was selfish and included this exercise solely for the purpose of meeting my daily merkin goal for November. Kudos to Swirly who pushed these out with a vengeance.

Toga called the Q out both last night and this AM, verifying it was worth his while. No kitty cat name calling for YHC in the near future.

There is a high likelihood YHC missed much of the mumblechatter throughout the workout. Hope a good time was had by all.


  • Talk of a potential HHH pub run on 11/18.  More info to follow.
  • 11/21 workouts at dogpile 6:00 & 7:00.  Special edition at 7 followed by Q school.
  • Punisher shirts available until tomorrow.  Pick them up as a christmas gift


  1. THE Yankee Aggressor on

    Great Q Splinter. Really enjoyed the workout. Great to be back out there in the gloom.

  2. Terrific Q.
    I hurt.
    Can’t wait to see Fudd meowing at each Brewery during the HHH pub run.

  3. Solid Q, and I’m glad you took my advice to not go full Nancy on it. There was some mumblechatter by Fudd talking about how great he thinks his beard is and the high level math involved with the Escalating Mary. It should also be noted that Bleeder came out of his shoes to beat everyone back to the flag (me included).

  4. Great Q, walking around proud today knowing I’m no kitty cat for having completed that workout.

  5. Great Q! So many merkins early in the day, I didn’t know how to spend my evening.

    I second the HHH pub run.

  6. I was just following orders, Q said go get him(Toga), back to the flag. Glad the flag wasn’t further away! Great Q Splinter!

  7. Great Q Splinter – I was still feeling that merkin ladder this morning at Sippy’s beatdown
