20 strong gathered at Mary Munford – about 1 for each degree it was above zero…
Mosey to far corner of school grounds along Grove.
Side Straddle Hop x 20
Don Quixotes x 10
Imperial Walker Squat x 10
Mosey to Field. Break into 2-4 groups (depending upon number). Each group advances to a different corner (i.e. station).
Station one: Complete 10 Burpees. Run to next station*
Station two: Burpees x 10, Merkins x 20. Run to next station*
Station three: Burpees x 10, Merkins x 20, WWII Situps x 20. Run to next station*
Repeat ….until Q says stop or 2 rounds (or rather triangles) completed:
*Advance from station to station by running diagonal, then running to the right along the perimeter – thus forming a triangle.
Plank up in center of field. Circle of fire. Complete 10 merkins, then Bear Crawl around circle until back in original position.
Line up facing far end of field. Break up into groups of about 5 each. Group planks up extending across field about 6 feet apart. Person in back does alternating bear crawl (under) and jump (over) each member in line…indian style until entire field is traversed.
Mosey back to flag:
American Hammers x20
Superman x 1
Most showed up in long pants, while a few die-hards arrived in shorts. Those who couldn’t decide (DK), showed up in both (British-style we supposed). Saab was not coordinated enough to perform the Imperial Walker Squats, but he gave it his best attempt. He also understands now it is NOT Russian Twist but American Hammer (in the parlance of our times…). Ground was way too cold and resulted in many frozen appendages, and a few receded-ones I imagine.
Started out with a lofty goal of 7 iterations of the triangle, but realized quickly we needed to scale down to only two in the interest of time, exhaustion, and potential frost bite on the fingers. Toga complimented Saab on his VQ. Saab reminded Toga it wasn’t his first, which either meant he was terrific on his second go-around, or his first time was that forgettable and it ended in a whimper. Bear crawls were equally as painful…frozen ground was described as crawling on rocks or gravel. Some said they even saw imprints from the Christmas Eve splashdown/mudfest.
Anyway, learned not to ask somebody why they got to bed late the night before (DK). I didn’t consider the handcuffs or the spoon.
Rock on TYA, Lockjaw… I’ll work to hit the trail run on Sunday, albeit in a conservative fashion.
The Saabinator abides.
