A parking crisis at Gridiron


8 RVA PAX and 1 Charlotte visitor entered the gloom, with storm clouds swirling, to gather around the Shovelflag flying perfectly in the wind.  It went down like:

COP:  30 SSH, 20 Merkins, 20 Freddy Mercurys, 25 Carolina Dry Docs, 20 Don Qs


Mosey to Upper field for:  The Beast –   Rnd 1 – Burpees ,  Rnd 2 – WWII Situps, Rnd 3 – Tuckjumps, Rnd 4 Carolina Dry Docks, Rnd 5 Flutterkicks, Rnd 6 – Burpees again

Mosey to school entrance for Triple Check – Run, Elbow plank, & People’s chair

Mosey to picnic tables for: 30 Dips, 20 Step Ups each leg, 20 Derkins, Repeato x2

Mosey to center field for:  Ring of Fire – leg hold 6 inches & Rosalitas.  Finish with CDDs AMRAP.

Back to the Flag for COT, Earthworm took us out.  Prayers go out to Chum Bucket – so sorry for your loss.  All the RVA PAX is keeping you and your family in our prayers.

NM:  So the PTP parking lot is being completely re-paved, which means the PAX had to find a way to park in the school lot.  Since the next turn in does not lead to a parking lot, rather a big bus loop, the PAX had to choose to hop a 3 inch curb over to the parking lot or go all the way around to the front of the school and back down.  YHC and Jville chose the former while the rest chose the law abiding alternative.  Circle K was finally convinced after much cajoling that his Jeep Cherokee could handle hopping the curb, after which he put it into 4WL and closed his eyes while he drove over.

The rain held off for the entirety of the Beast and decided to open up during the Triple Check.  TClaps to Jolly Rancher for burning through the Burpees during the beast.  YHC borrowed the 2 rounds of Burpees during the beast from Wedding Singer’s 45MoM this week.  That was rough to bookend the beast with burpees.  The rain really opened up during the ROF, making sure the PAX was extra soaked to finish up.

Great to have Pigskin join us in the Gloom, congrats on your new addition to the family and strong work today.  Nice to see White Deer so much stronger since when he originally posted in January.  Circle K mentioned to YHC after the beatdown he was surprised at the lack of BearCrawls during this Q,  YHC wasn’t aware that is a calling card but will be sure to include those next time just for you,

Announcements:  More New AOs launching this week – W Dog on Wednesday at Dogpile & Circus Maximus on Thursday at Godwin HS.  CM at Godwin is a Kettlebell workout, BYOKB.  Rumor has it Earthworm may even post during the week at the new Godwin AO this week.

April Challenge is 5,000 Carolina Dry Docks.  Not too late to sign up!  CDD count this morning was 125.

Pleasure to lead this PAX in the gloom this AM.

  1. Glad to have Honey Do back at the GridIron with his strong Q! If we had extended the workout another hour we would have seen Russell Wilson address the young gridironers on the main field.

  2. Honey Do RVA on

    Saw thar Russell was there, that was what they were setting up. We missed our chance to EH him.
