Tacky Light Tour…ERR…Audible


5 stalwarts escaped the warm fartsack and arrived at Bettie Weaver Elementary School for the penultimate River Run of 2016.  Given the holiday week and YHC’s recent bout with chest cold, YHC planned an easy 3-mile mosey tacky light tour through Tarrington with some decoration-inspired workouts (i.e., 5 burpees for ever inflatable, 10 merkins for each tree/bush with lights, etc.) and some group exercises at the 3 or 4 roundabouts along the rout..  Well, YHC jumped out of the sack early this morning to drive the route and see how this was going to go down….no lights, no inflatables to be found.  Either timers were doing their job or Tarrington folks are not in the spirit…CRAP…OMAHA, OMAHA…Check…Check…Audible…so, instead, River Run 12/19/16 went something like this:

Mosey to the courts at the back of the school for COP:

  • SSHs x25 IC
  • DQ, super slow-mo, x10 IC
  • Imperial Walkers x20 IC
  • Copperhead Squats x20 IC
  • LBCx x25 IC
  • Flutter Kicks x25 IC
  • Merkins x10 IC

Mosey to the bus loop and partner up for Dora – 100 Merkins, 200 Box Cutters, 300 Jump Squats while partner runs the bus loop.

Mosey to the baseball dugout for Triple Nickel – 5 Donkey Kicks on the dugout wall, run to the hill, bear crawl up the hill, perform 5 monkey-humpers at the top of the hill, run back to the dugout and repeat x5

Mosey to the track/football field for a quick triple check – BTTW, Freddy Mercuries, Lap around the track.  Two rounds. For the second round, run was 100-yard dash and back instead of a full lap.

Mosey back to the flag for COT number-rama, name-a-rama, and YHC took us out.

Strong work this morning gentlemen.  It turns out that there is no fast way to complete 200 box cutters…YIKES.  Many thanks to Rosie for pulling the laboring oar on the Dora’s this morning as YHC is building back stamina after almost 2 weeks down.

Great to have Honeymoon join the crew at River Run. We look forward to you being a regular on Mondays.

Have a great day men.

No more Gumbo for you!
