Stairs to Hell


5 were alive and ready to tackle forest hill.  Great to have Swirly back from Vacation and of course he was there at 5:00 ready to go.  Well this being my First Q at Batteau my plan did not go as I had imagined, but I think we all got something out of this morning!!!


25 SSH 5-5 arm circles 10 knee bends

Mosey to the pond for  2 man relay teams, one runs a lap around the pond and the other picks up a rock of choosing for single leg squats with rock on shoulder or arms until the other man catches him and he than takes a lap and gives the rock to his teammate. We did this for 3 rounds changing the rock enjoyment along the way. With overhead carries, squats press and single leg squats.

25 Flutter kicks

Now this is where it gets dicey: I was planning on 10-20-30 merkin stair runs and 10-20-30 dips at the top.  I thought we would do the dips at the top of the stairs but Hardywood said he had a better idea, we will take a left at the top and run a killer hill. Sounds great on paper but boy my legs were smoked!!!

At the top of the next set of stairs I found 5 poles with our names on it so we finished with 25 pole smokers than run back to the flag.

Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to lead. Singer is really picking up his runs and getting stronger. Swirly, Hardywood and LastTime totally showed up big time looking strong all the way through..

Also Gumbo has NoToll but its at a different location so look at the post for the info.

    Man that is Q’ING 101- if Hardywood has a suggestion, beware- it will end in pain.

  2. Ok, what the what. I suggested no such thing. As a personal rule, when I feel vomit playing UFC in the thorax I will generally suggest we do something easy like play video games. Despite my suggestions to go back to my house and play Mortal Kombat, Flashdance did not take that under advisement.

    Great Q brotha!
