The Rise and Fall of the Oyster


Five RVA folks rose from their beds to join in on a Monday workout at Forest Hills park.

The thang:

Mosey to the bottom of the stairs – COT – 20 SSH, 20 dips, 10 leg dips each leg, 20 flutter kicks.

Mosey to market area – Dora – partner up for 100 merkins, 200 pole smokers and 300 single count mountain climbers, partner runs around wooden building.

Mosey back to bottom of the stairs – Lindsays- Irkins and WWII situps.

Bear crawl up the hill to the tennis courts.

Four Corners – 5 burpees, 10 slow bending squats, 20 Freddie Mercury, 40 LBC. Repeat but multuply reps by 2.

Mosey to small field next to street. Bolt. Jog around small field, sprint to flag.


Good to see everyone in the gloom. Way to push it on a Monday morning. YHC noted it was nice to not be drenched in humidity after a workout. The title of today’s workout came from an ill-advised attempt at bolts on the small lawn near the house. On the very first bolt, the one they call the Oyster was giving it his all, speeding out several feet in front of the Pax. Concurrently, the ever-wise Swirly was moving diligently across the field, throwing caution to us to ‘watch for holes’. This began the fall of Oyster as he found one of said holes, and took a good spill. All was well, laughs were had, and YHC abandoned the idea of bolts across a dark unknown field. Also Flipper provided some good laughs at attempting to bear crawl to the wrong entrance to the tennis courts. You are a fierce bear crawler sir.

Wednesday happy hour is being held by Hardywood at 6:00 PM at Crossroads near Forest Hill Park. Run then coffee I assume.

Best of luck to Saab as he takes on the cloud splitter this weekend. Just remember it’s a long mosey, that should take you through the 100 miles. Arnie Palmer golf claps for BT and Toga completing the Spartan race, heard it was really easy though.
