A total of 18 turned out for the Christmas Eve workout at Mary Munford (and to witness my VQ). Couldn’t ask for more pleasant and inviting weather…
20 x Merkins, 20 x WWII Situps, 10 x Mexican Squats, 10 x Turkish Prison (apologies Aisle 5)
Bermuda Triangle Derivative: Broke into groups of 5 (or more). 3 stations. Each group does 10 of each exercise at each station. Rotated between Merkins, Burpees, and WWII Situps. Maxed out at 10 stations.
Looking North (For Santa, Star of Bethlehem, or what have you)…One partner does burpees while other partner runs to mid-point of field (backward), does 10 Squats, then returns (forward of course). Alternate until 10 iterations (5 rounds each)
Merkin Ring of Fire: Circle up (Plank), then Bear Crawl (one rotation), Then progressed Merkins (1-18) around circle, then descending count
I took some heat for my Mexican and Turkish references, either misnamed or not entirely PC. (Learned later that Aisle 5 was somewhat taken aback by the Turkish Prison reference. Have it on authority he’s either of Turkish descent, or from New York…whichever.)
As we descended upon the playing field, there were concerns expressed by Wilson regarding its condition and the further damage we would do. (The field was really more like an olympic-size swimming pool with a Mud-base.) Bleeder assured us this was the City of Richmond and not a neighboring county, so we could press-on. As for everything that happened after that, it was a blur to me. There were a few “airing of the grievances” but only in the most constructive light.
As we circled-up, offshore introduced his (FNG) brother in law (Jamie Cox) from Alabama. Despite a respectable introduction and distinguished background given, Bleeder jumped right to (Alabama) “Prom Date”…everyone pounced and thus Prom Date was born (welcome!).
In the end, DK said he had never been wetter, Saab had to continually pull his pants up since they were past the saturation point, and – by my understanding – Aisle 5 and Wilson drove home without any clothes on.
Thanks to all for showing up today and for helping me along. As mentioned, unlike my other first-time, this one lasted much longer and I got a lot more out of it.
Reminder, no workout/run on Friday.
Abidingly yours, Saab
