In 1492 F3 Richmond…


Seven veterans and one FNG posted for a Columbus Day workout.

The Thang:

Mosey around road, circle up in small field – Merkins (10), Mtn climbers (15), Plank Dips (10), Freddie Mercury (15), repeat all four, Don Quixote(10), Hillbilly(15)

Mosey down stairs to valley of doom (YHC thinks that’s what the area is now called).

Curb crawls Irkins up to 4 and back down using stone benches/wall.

Lindsays – step ups and flutter kicks

Mosey to field near house – Polar Bear crawl to the other end, Polar lunges with squats every 5 steps back.

Triple check – SSH, WWII situps, run around parking lot

Ring of Fire – two rounds burpees, one round merkins (10), one round heels to heaven (10)


Great job getting up and out to the early workout today PAX, it’s now always as easy on a federal holiday. Upon entering the neighborhood, a tree had fallen across the road and blocked the path. YHC encountered the same obstacle in his own neighborhood but managed to make it to the workout on time.  Acorns menaced the hands and backs during the valley of doom exercises. This, in addition to the brisk temperature, feels like fall is upon us.

T-claps for T-Swifty, Honey Do’s kid, for making his FNG appearance this morning. PAX had an idea for a mini-melon name but upon hearing he did not like T Swift, and his fast pace in the workout, T-Swift stuck. Never disclose your thoughts on the naming process my friend.

YHC missed the convergence but heard it was a good workout in the rain. 44 strong at both workouts! Great job.

Announcements – keep an eye out for this month’s happy hour, hasn’t been decided yet. Otherwise there’s a couple runs, one that’s full and a 50K in March.

  1. I petition we rename it Acorn Valley, bear crawls on those made it interesting. Thanks for the warm welcome to T-Swifty. He loved it.
