Five of the faithful posed at #Circus Maximus to build strength using kettlebells. The weather was overcast. Johnsonville (YHC) planted a VSF and took the Q. This is how it went down, more or less:
25x Don Quiotes
40x Arm Circles
Farmer Walk Mosey to front of bus loop as rain began to fall.
Dora 1-2-3 in pairs, including
100x merkin kettlebell rows
200x squat presses with kettlebells
300x halos with kettlebells
Partner had choice of running Circus Maximus or Farmer Walking 1/2 leg of CM.
Farmer Walk Mosey to front of school. Observe lightning strike in close proximity to AO. Briefly discuss safety and appropriate path forward.
Scrap planned 2nd Dora 1-2-3, and instead Farmer Walk Mosey to colonnade/shelter beside bus loop for COP as the rain increased to a downpour:
25x Freddie Mercs
Protractor (legs at 6″ for about 1 min.)
15x Single Arm Kettlebell Swings (right)
15x Single Arm Kettlebell Swings (left)
10x Single Arm Kettlebell Swings (right)
10x Single Arm Kettlebell Swings (left)
5x Single Arm Kettlebell Swings (right)
5x Single Arm Kettlebell Swings (left)
25x WWII sit-ups with Kettlebell press at top
10x Electric slide
10x Electric slide with Kettlebell press at each side
That Dora 1-2-3 sequence was long and difficult. The PAX did a great job pushing through it.
Many thanks to DK for suggesting that we move to shelter in response to the lightning. That was clearly the right call, and it was easy to adapt the workout. There is no point in taking that kind of a risk.
Congratulations to Rosie for a strong 1/2 marathon in Roanoke last weekend.
Great job this morning. It was a pleasure to lead this group of men!
