5 Faithful posted on a blustery Spring (??) morning. Felt more like mid winter thanks to a 40 degree drop in temperature during the previous 9 hours.
Mosey to from Shovel flag, across parking lot to corner adjacent to greenhouse. Warm up COP. 15x Don Quixote, 20x LBC, 25x SSH, 30 (15 on each side) arm circles.

Ascending and Descending curb crawls, ascend to 8 and descend back down to one. Mosey to base of hill for a mini Beast. Run to top of hill, 6 carolina drydocks, run to bottom, 6 decline merkins, repeato x 6. Mosey to bus loop in front of elementary school. Elevens on the front stretch of the loop with Lt. Dan’s and step ups. Mosey to field next to track for 3 MOM. 15x LBC, 20x flutter kicks, 25 x Russian twists. Mosey back to shovel flag for a quick COT and everyone goes out into the day.
Great to lead at the new AO. When Circle K led the first workout there, we did a lap around the entire AO. ON my VQ of the AO, I wanted to make it around the loop again. So, we did a modified four corners of the entire AO. 2.5+ miles or running plus a beatdown on arms, legs and abs is what we got. This AO is very rich with options of things to do. Several tracks, several fields, a stadium, 3 bus loops, a trail, and a great shortish hill. Additionally, there are a few large parking lots which could be creatively used.
Very quiet today during the workout. Very little mumble chatter, except for the occasional enthusiasm from Abacus. Not sure if it was the AO norm or just a good beatdown with no time for chatter.
COT message today by YHC was about patience. My message must have been a premonition of what I would need today. I had several time during the day where I needed maximum patience. Luckily, I was able to remember the message and keep my cool….
W-Dog starts tomorrow. Come on out and check out the new weekly workout. Circus Maximus starts on Thursday, bring a kettlebell or block and check it out. With 13 workouts per week now it give all of us a great opportunity to lead and to get more folks out to the workouts. Keep ehing folks, lets build this thing and make Richmond a stronger region.
See you in the gloom.
