Blackjack at Riverrun

7

Five of the faithful and two FNGs posted at RiverRun on a crisp fall morning for some gloom. McRib arrived at the last minute. Johnsonville (YHC) planted a VSF, gave a lengthy disclaimer, and commenced the following workout:

COP warmup — SSH, Don Quiotes, Imperial Walker, arm circles

Mosey across field behind Betty Weaver ES to large parking area across from JR football field.

COP warmup — hillbillies, scap merkins, LBCs

Blackjack as follows —
— start beneath light near corner of parking lot
— run clockwise around lot to light near next corner. Plank until all are together. Do 20 merkins and 1 crabcake.
— run clockwise around lot to light near next corner. Plank until all are together. Do 19 merkins and 2 crabcakes.
— rinse and repeat until you get to 1 merkin and 20 crabcakes.
— at about the 10/11 mark YHC recommended that the PAX replace crabcakes with LBCs.

Line up along parking lines for Ark Loader as follows:
— lunge about 35 yards to parking spaces several rows over
— karaoke back
— opposite karaoke back
— bunny hop back
— single leg side hops

Mosey back to VSF. COP flutter kicks until time ran out.

Number-rama, name-a-rama, announcements, COT with YHC taking us out.

MOLESKIN —

Welcome FNG ChickenParm and FNG Karaoke. Welcome back out HorseandBuggy. Welcome to Riverrun McRib. It was great having you guys out!

This was not a particularly easy workout for FNGs because of the high reps, but everyone pushed through. In my defense, Rosie suggested this workout while we were driving to VA Beach on Saturday. It is Rosie’s fault! Hopefully chests and shoulders will not be too sore tomorrow.

By my count, we did 210 merkins this morning.

Have a grat day! Jville

  1. I do not remember suggesting this, only saying that it was an option in lieu of the merkin ladder you were considering. I believe the FNG name is Chicken Parm as in “Chicken Parm you taste so good” as harmonized by Peyton Manning.
    Welcome Chicken Parm and Karaoke.

  2. Nice Q Jville! I am glad we were able to get the merkins in this AM. Thank you for taking the lead.

    Welcome Chicken Parm and Karaoke!

    Way to work today guys!

  3. Nice Q Jville. Way to keep the Southsiders on track for the Merkin challenge. Welcome Chicken Parm and Karaoke. I hope you guys will make Mondays at River Run a regular occurrence and even make it out to some other workouts. It is worth the lost sleep and soreness…that will fade!
